Library cat Browser given the boot by council
A city council in Texas has voted to remove a cat which has lived at the public library for six years.
The governing council of the Fort Worth suburb of White Settlement voted 2-1 to give the library 30 days to find a new home for Browser the cat.
Council member Elzie Clements moved at a June 14 council meeting for the ex-shelter cat's removal.
Mayor Ron White, who has no vote on the council, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the vote was a tit-for-tat after a city employee was not allowed to bring a puppy to work at City Hall.
Ex-council member Alan Price said Browser's supporters will petition for a reprieve in November's elections.
