Sheriff Jerome Kramer says that the cats named Sarge and Nemo, were adopted and brought into the facility to help relieve stress and provide much needed companionship.
Watching the news clip above, you can really see how quickly some of the inmates have bonded with the new feline residents, and Kramer tells WALB that despite having a laminated list of "cat rules" that includes basic care such as brushing and litter box duty, they're still lining up for the responsibility.
While the cats are a welcome addition for both the prisoners and staff alike, they're not the only ones who stand to benefit from the unlikely partnership. Kramer adds, "They'll have a really good life here. It's a good deal for the cats. Who knows what would happen to them otherwise. Hopefully this is a good future for them."
