To help combat a steady wave of shoplifting a 7-Eleven store in the Japanese region of Kanto is requesting the public's assistance.
A pilfering feline has stolen hundreds of yen worth of cat food from the helpless convenience store.
The store has now put up a sign reading: "We need your help Please do not feed this cat. It enters the store and shoplifts cat food.
"We told the cat that it was banned from the store but it didn’t listen. Thank you for your cooperation." The cat is described as three-apples-tall, black, and walks in an aloof manner.
