A feral cat got into a Maryland elementary school Friday morning, and after early attempts to capture it failed, officials sent students home for the day.
Animal Control officers brought traps for school staff to use inside Richard Henry Lee Elementary School in Glen Burnie. But on Saturday, the Anne Arundel County schools posted on Twitte that they have been unable to catch the kitty.
