A Michigan school district denied a disturbing report that a principal placed litter boxes in school restrooms for students who identify as cats.

The incident apparently originated at a December school board meeting, when a parent said the principal at her child's school placed "a litter box in one of the unisex bathrooms for the kids that identify as cats."

She said the school principal put the litter boxes out to accommodate children who identify as "furries."

Furries are defined as a community of people who identify as animal characters with human personalities and characteristics.

"I'm all for creativity and imagination," the mother said, "but when someone lives in a fantasy world and expects other people to go along with it, I have a problem with that."

Video footage from the school board meeting went viral online and was even shared by the Michigan Republican Party's co-chair.

When the story gained traction on Facebook and in the NY Post, Superintendent Michael E. Sharrow issued a statement.

"At the December 20 Board of Education meeting, a community member addressed the Board of Education. During her comments she stated that litter boxes were provided within MPS student restrooms for those who identify themselves as "furries."

Let me be clear in this communication. There is no truth whatsoever to this false statement/accusation! There have never been litter boxes within MPS schools.

It is such a source of disappointment that I felt the necessity to communicate this message to you. In this divisive/contentious world in which we currently find ourselves, I ask that if you hear wild accusations that don’t sound like something in which your Midland Public Schools Board of Education, Administration, District would be part, take a moment to send an MPSConnect message to me."

A 21-year-old woman pulls in $10,000 a month acting like a puppy on OnlyFans. The Austin, Texas resident created an OnlyFans account to earn a little extra cash for bills.

But after posting "vanilla" content for 18 months, Jenna Phillips told The Mirror the money was slow rolling in. That's when Phillips decided to begin acting like an adorable puppy on the subscription platform.

"I have always acted like a puppy, but not in a sexual way at first. I used to pretend I was a puppy when I was growing up," Phillips, 21, told the Mirror. "Looking back on it now, it's kind of always been there. I just didn't know there was a scene — I just thought it was my personality."

She added: "When it comes to pet play, the majority of girls do kittens, foxes or rabbits, and the majority of puppies are men. I thought about it for a long time when I first got into pet play. I feel like a dog."

Phillips is among a growing number of people raking in cash on OnlyFans by playing cute animals.

The "furry fandom" is a subculture community of people who dress up in giant animal mascot costumes. But "furries" take their animal obsession to a different level - one that involves a fur fetish. They are capitalizing on their fetish on OnlyFans.

Phillips doesn't go that far. She avoids dressing up in fur. Phillips earns over $10,000 a month posting kinky videos on OnlyFans. She has a following of 215,000 on TikTok.

Phillips told Vice she earns enough money to quit her job as an optician and dedicate herself full-time to puppy play, including eating dog food out of a bowl.

"It's insane," she told Vice. "I never thought my weird dog kink would be looked at by a broad audience, or that so many people would like/care about it. It still blows my mind."
