A modern day Rat Patrol has been created to rid the streets of rats in a program designed to save the lives of these cats and put them to work doing what comes naturally.
The Working Cats program is a Los-Angeles based animal rescue group and has placed feral cats in a handful of rat and mice infested areas. Rather than killing the rats the scent from the cats drive them away. It’s a very humane way of dealing with the problem.
