July 29, Abdulmajeed Albari, the manager of a grocery store in New York, announced that his cat had been kidnapped. The feline, who spends his days with his owner, was very familiar with small business customers. His disappearance moved them very much and the matter of the book was much talked about.
A CCTV camera captured the moment Boka was abducted
the book is a cat that spends its time observing passers-by, comfortably installed in its basket in front of the door of the grocery store. He also regularly walks the surrounding streets. One day, during one of his walks, a stranger kidnapped him. The owner of the feline had seen nothing of the events, but on the footage of the surveillance cameras the scene leaves no doubt.

In the images, we discover a man pacing back and forth in front of the store, slowly approaching the book then grabs hold of him and quickly walks away with him.
The kidnapper buckled under media pressure
The owner of the book shared the surveillance images on social media. The face of the kidnapper was easily recognizable there. This kidnapping was then reported by the media, particularly by CBS news.
A few days later, on August 6, Abdulmajeed announced good news. “The book is back. Thanks to everyone who helped us and shared the story. We couldn’t have done it without you“, he wrote and accompanied his text with a nice photo of the safe and healthy cat.
the book was actually deposited in the grocery store through a contact from the kidnapper, as related Eater New York. The latter would have explained his gesture by saying that he was concerned for the cat’s safety, having the impression that his owner was neglecting him. Statements immediately rejected by Abdulmajeedwho does not hesitate to say the book that it is”everybody”.
