A Texas Councilman had Browser, the library cat, fired earlier this year. Browser was rescued as a kitten from a local shelter to provide pest control for the library.
Browser got a reprieve following a world-wide backlash. Councilman Clements eventually ran out of his 9-lives after he was defeated by a landslide in November’s election.
Mayor White says, “Browser is still employed and will be as long as he wishes to continue his duties as mascot and reading helper for the children at the library”.
