Lita Velasquez feeds cats in the central park of Lima's upscale seaside Miraflores district, in Peru, Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2012. About 120 felines populate the park. Some of the cats descended from a pair municipal authorities introduced in the late 1990s to control a rat infestation. After a local TV feature this week focused attention on the cat colony, a top official at Peru's environmental health agency announced a commission would be created to determine whether they posed a health risk. A member of Miraflores' Voluntary Feline Defense Group called the announcement an overreaction, saying the cats get constant veterinarian attention. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)
