Texas City Votes to Evict Cat From Library

Fur is flying in White Settlement City, Texas, after the city council voted 2-1 to evict a beloved cat from the library where he’s been a fixture for the last six years. City councilman Elzie Clements claimed that the library was “no place for animals.” But Mayor Ron White, who doesn’t have a council vote, is not happy with the situation. He accused the council of evicting Browser out of retaliation. “We've had that cat five years, and there's never been a question,” White told The Fort Worth Star Telegram. “That cat doesn't have anything to do with whether somebody can have their puppy at City Hall. That cat doesn't hurt anybody ... The council just went out and did this on their own because they don't like cats.” The dissenting city councilman has asked the council to reconsider the ban at their next meeting. — Read it at Yahoo News
