HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - Residents in a Detroit enclave are relying on neighborhood cats to help deal with a rat problem.

WXYZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1l1h94L ) Thursday that people living on Tennyson Street in Highland Park are relying on felines to hunt the rats coming from two abandoned homes. Residents say the homes have been abandoned for years.

Mayor DeAndre Windom says he will send crews to investigate the problem and is seeking grant money to raze the homes because the financially struggling city can’t afford it.
