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.
