Texas city gives library-dwelling pussycat the boot

Call it a case of claw and order. The city council of White Settlement — just to the west of Forth Worth — on June 14 voted 2-1 to evict Browser, the “Chief Library Cat” of the city’s public library, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The cat has been the library’s feline mascot for six years. But the former shelter animal received 30 days to get out of the stacks after the council decided that public buildings were no place for animals, according to the Star-Telegram.

White Settlement Mayor Ron White, a non-voting member of the council, is on Browser’s side.

“That cat doesn’t hurt anybody,” the Star-Telegram quotes White as saying. “The council just went out and did this on their own because they don’t like cats.”

Browser has his own Facebook page, where a trickle of support has come in from commenters.

White wants to bring Browser’s case back in front of the council on July 12, the Star-Telegram reports.
