GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Three Green Bay cats have left a shelter to work as dedicated mice hunters at a 26-acre historical park.

Press-Gazette Media reports (https://gbpg.net/1vHMHUa ) the Heritage Hill State Historical Park cats were adopted through the Bay Area Humane Society’s Barn Cat Buddies program. Feral cats and others that aren’t candidates to be pets can be placed in outdoor settings where they help control the rodent population and have access to extra food and warm shelter.

The humane society says Barn Cat Buddies has helped adopt about 35 cats in the last couple of years.

Heritage Hill’s cats have helped rein in the mice in the park’s many historic buildings. The cats usually sleep in a barn and have slowly become more social with visitors. One cat named Alphonse recently crashed a wedding at the park.
