A library cat was fired by a city council vote in northern Texas, but those in favor of retaining the mascot have vowed to fight back.

According to The Associated Press, 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.

The ex-shelter cat has been a library fixture for six years. But council member Elzie Clements moved at a June 14 council meeting for the tabby's removal.

Mayor Ron White, who has no vote on the council, tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the vote was a tit-for-tat after a city employee wasn't 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.
