In a single week, each cat in the rat infested village of Catattackya killed the same number of rats as every other cat. The total number of rat fatalities during the week came to 299.

Less than 20 cats achieved this remarkable feat. How many cats were there in Catattackya, and how many rats did each kill?

Hint: Both answers are Prime numbers.....
