Cats and monkeys have turned out to make good roommates at a zoo in Kunming, Southwest China's Yunnan province, the Chuncheng Evening News reported on Tuesday.

Zookeepers turned to the feral felines when a rat infestation began causing problems in the monkey enclosure about three years ago.

The vermin stole food from monkeys, spread disease and displeased visitors, zookeeper Wang Ang said.
