Shoplifting Foiled by Feline: Malindi’s Vigilante Black Cat Makes a Stand
The Unlikely Hero
In an unusual turn of events in a busy Malindi shop, a customer’s attempt to abscond without paying was thwarted by an unlikely vigilante – a black cat.
The shop was bustling with customers, and the shopkeeper was engrossed in attending to their demands.
Sly Customer, Slyer Cat
As the shopkeeper busily served customers, one man was handed his ordered products. Seizing the opportunity amidst the bustling crowd, he decided to quietly leave without settling the bill.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t the sliest entity in the shop. The shop’s black cat was watching his every move.
A Hiss That Spoke Volumes
As the would-be shoplifter approached the door, the large black cat sprung into action. With a hiss that echoed through the shop, it stood its ground, refusing to let the man pass.
The unusual behavior quickly attracted the attention of both customers and the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper, realizing the man hadn’t paid for his goods, firmly reprimanded him.
In Swahili, he warned, “Bwana we, hapa huwezi kuiba au kuondoka bila kulipa. Leta pesa,” which translates to “Sir, you cannot steal or leave here without paying.
Bring the money.” Duly chastised, the man handed over the payment for his goods. It was only then that the cat moved aside, allowing him to leave.
In Praise of the Feline Sentinel
This incident serves as a testament to the surprising vigilance of the shop’s resident feline. The black cat, usually a symbol of superstition, turned into an unexpected hero, effectively guarding the shop from potential theft.
Perhaps shop owners around the world should consider a new security measure – a vigilant house cat!
