GLEN BURNIE, MD (WJLA/CNN) – Students at a Maryland elementary school got an early start to the holiday weekend, thanks to a cat.

Officials say a feral cat was running loose inside the building, and after animal control was unable to catch it, school was dismissed for the day.

Students who didn't ride the bus had to wait with teachers on the school's playground for their parents to pick them up.

Animal control officers say with an empty school, they could set up traps to catch the cat.
