[Catalyst] Helper classes shared across multiple controllers - any recommendations?

I would like to provide functionality to multiple controllers. Imagine, you
have a funny class "Funny.pm" as __part of your catalyst app__ .

I could create the helper class in a directory below my app e.g.

Then, I could use the class in a Controller "Test":
package Cat::Controller::Test;

use strict;
use warnings;
use base 'Catalyst::Controller';
use Cat::Helper::Funny;   ## <-- this is the funny class

sub index : Private {
    my ( $self, $c ) =3D @_;

    # do funny stuff
    my $fun =3D Cat::Helper::Funny->new( %some_params );
    my $funny_result =3D $fun->do_calculate();

    # .... some more steps ...

My questions:
- Is this a could way to solve the problem? (may be best practice?)
- Any other suggestions?
