Multi-recidivist kleptomaniac cat breaks into store to steal stuffed animals (video)

As soon as he spotted a series of stuffed monkeys hanging in a store, a stray cat set out to collect as many as he could. Passers-by saw him at work and filmed the scene. Shared on TikTok, the video totals 4.3 million views.

The theft of several stuffed animals by an alley cat sparked giggles from the people who attended and filmed the scene. The video, relayed by Newsweekwent viral in no time.

A user of TikTok calling himself Chezcone was passing in front of a store, when he realized that a cat had just come out dragging a stuffed monkey which he held firmly in his mouth. It was most likely a female, with a calico dress. The majority of domestic felines with tortoiseshell or calico (white associated with tortoiseshell) coats are, in fact, cats.

Chezcone followed the animal with his gaze, while the latter joined the opposite sidewalk where 3 other of his catches were already lying. The cat therefore now had 4 stuffed monkeys, but she was not going to be satisfied with that.

And another for the road…

The rest of the sequence shows her, in fact, crossing the street again to return to the store, where the toys hung on a display near the door continued to attract her irresistibly.

With a light and determined step, she climbed the 3 steps of the establishment, set her sights on a red monkey, picked it up and then left with it. A man, probably an employee or manager of the shop, tried in vain to pursue her, but the cat was too fast for him. She was already with her precious booty on the other side of the street.

If the scene has something to smile about, the behavior displayed by the cat may hide something much sadder. As one of the people who commented pointed out, it could indeed be that she had and lost little ones, and that these stuffed animals serve her, in a way, to compensate for this absence.
