¿Why too many cats in this Park?

Local people say that many years ago there were lots of Rats and Mouses at this Park therefore Locals use to leave their cats in this area but unfortunately as time went by many people misunderstood this issue and they started bringing their cats on purpose cause they though this place was for all cats that you cannot take care of! Therefore we have many cats in this area, we calculate at least 25 of them, the good thing is that they are well-taken care by the neighbours who bring them food, anyway Kennedy Park without cats wouldn’t be the same!
