ROANOKE,Va. -

An April Fools’ joke is hoping to bring a Roanoke neighborhood a little closer.
Yesterday members of the Old Southwest Incorporated Neighborhood Group put flyers on doors about feral cats giving people fake tips on how to befriend them.
On the back of the flyer: a friendly notice that it's an April Fools prank.

"Old Southwest Incorporated has been around for more than three decades. And one of the primary factors we have is home preservation. But we're more than just that. Not only do we take care of homes, we do community outreach programs to help youth,” said President Jason Cromer.
