Browser, the beloved library cat of the White Settlement Public Library in a Fort Worth, TX suburb, will be fired from his job because the town council recently decided animals are no longer allowed in public buildings. The library mascot has until July 14 to find a new home. The mayor of White Settlement is planning to appeal the decision at the July 12 council meeting. For more about Browser and the controversy his firing has caused, visit ABC News.
Update: At an emergency meeting Friday afternoon, the council voted unanimously that Browser can stay.
