A SCHOOL has been forced to deny rumours that cat litter trays have been installed in the toilets for students that identify as cats in an email to parents.
Several social media posts have circulated for a number of weeks about students at JCG who had decided they identify as felines, with the posts also suggesting that the school had supported this by providing cat litter trays.
In an email to parents, JCG head teacher Carl Howarth said: ‘I really cannot believe I am writing this email but here we go…
‘We have been aware for some time of rumours that we have installed cat litter trays in our toilets. We had thought that, as it was so clearly nonsense and utterly ludicrous, these rumours would naturally stop without our involvement.
‘However, rather bizarrely that doesn’t seem to be the case. Please do correct anybody who may talk to you about it.
‘Right, back to reality.’
The social media post has spread around the UK, with most cities and regions having their own versions of it.
