City council votes to oust library cat

WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas -- A city council began a cat fight by voting to oust the furry mascot of the city's public library. The White Settlement governing council voted 2-1 to give the library 30 days to find a new home for Browser the cat. The ex-shelter cat was a library fixture for six years. But council member Elzie Clements proposed the tabby's removal. Mayor Ron White said the vote was a tit-for-tat after a city employee wasn't allowed to bring a puppy to work at city hall.
