A Kentucky school district is reportedly struggling to crack down on students who are pretending to be cats.
Over 1,000 students in the Meade County school district have signed a petition requesting school officials ban “furries” from engaging in feline-like behavior on school property, local CBS affiliate WLKY reported Monday.
- “Apparently, from what I understand, they’re called ‘furries,'”said an anonymous grandmother of two students, who she said were scared to go to school. “They identify with animals. These people will hiss at you or scratch at you if they don’t like something you’re doing.”
- School Superintendent Mark Martin said violations of the school dress code had been dealt with “consistently” by the administration, but the grandmother urged fellow Meade County residents to bare their claws at the school board’s Sept. 14 meeting.
