WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (AP) - A North Texas city council has started a cat fight by voting to oust the furry mascot of the city’s public library.

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 (https://bit.ly/28SVZsK ) 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.
