Maryland School Closes as Feral Cat Runs Loose in Building

Richard Henry Lee Elementary school in Glen Burnie, Md. will close at 9:45 a.m. today because—duh, of course, what else—a feral cat is currently terrorizing the campus.

There's not a ton of information out there about this feral cat. Is it big and ferocious, or just an ordinary stray? Does it have rabies? Is it cute or no?

The Anne Arundel County public school board issued the following statement:

Animal Control officials have been unable to capture the feral cat inside the building at Richard Henry Lee Elementary School, and will be setting traps for it. As a result, Richard Henry Lee Elementary School will close at 9:45 a.m. today.

Traps? According to the Capital Gazette, "the kitty hasn't scratched yet." Why traps? Anyway, four day weekend!
