Sheriff adopts two cats for jail inmates

LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 18 (UPI) — A Nebraska sheriff said inmates at his county jail have been caring for two cats he adopted to help the men feel “a lot more at ease.”

Lincoln County Sheriff Jerome Kramer said jail inmates have recently been volunteering at a local animal shelter and their work inspired him to adopt a pair of cats for the prisoners to take care of, KNOP-TV, North Platte, Neb., reported Thursday.

“I asked myself, ‘I wonder how those would work out in the jail,’ as far as helping the guys pass time and make them feel a lot more at ease and less destructive to our facility. So, we adopted a couple of them and brought them back here,” Kramer said.

“We got their mug shots and put them in a couple of cells where we thought they would be better received. We gave the inmates a list of cat rules for caring for the cat such as cleaning their litter box. But they are waiting in line to take care of the cat,” he said.

“The studies show that it will help with relieving stress and give them something to do, something to occupy their time,” the sheriff said.
