    Does anyone know that there are Domestic Cats at the Milwaukee County Zoo? Does anyone have pictures of them?

    Like, are there just domestic cats exhibited?

    If so, then that reminds me of a story my dad always likes to tell about little poodles behind lots of bars and security in the cairo zoo

    They've had cats in their farm area. I've seen them there before. I don't have pictures, as I never considered them something special that I'd want to snap photos of tho haha

    Some zoos keep cats to help keep down the mice. I think there might have been a thread about it on here before?

    Afaik Milwaukee doesn't keep Domestic Cats anymore. When they did, they were in an enclosure in the farm area.

    Keeping a cat in an enclosure just seems strange to me, but keeping down rodent populations makes some sense
