Library Cat is Being Taken Away from the Place He Calls Home After 6 Years
A cat that has been a loyal worker and family to a library for six years is being taken away from the place he calls home.
Browser has been living at the Friends of the White Settlement Public Library (White Settlement, TX) for six years. He’s done great to contribute to fixing the library’s rodent problem and is loved by everyone there. However, things took a different turn, when suddenly he was asked to move out of the place he calls home.
This friendly feline has been a fixture at the library and people from all ages adore him and his purrsonality.
“I don’t have any animals. But this cat is so gentle and so lovable and he brings so much comfort to so many people, it seems like a shame to take him away,” Lillian Blackburn, president of the library, told Star Telegram.
It all happened after a city employee complained to the city council that they weren’t allowed to bring their puppy to work, but also pointed out the fact that Browser was allowed to stay at the library.
Despite “an outpouring of support for the cat”, the White Settlement City Council voted to evict the cat.
Ironically, it was the city council that voted to allow the library to have a cat to help them with pest control.
Mayor Ron White, a nonvoting council moderator, also wants Browser to stay.
“That cat doesn’t have anything to do with whether somebody can have their puppy at City Hall. That cat doesn’t hurt anybody,” he said to Star-Telegram.
Browser is a wonderful cat and always so helpful around the library.
Not only does he keep the rodents at bay, he helps his humans with their work too.

What a hero!
He helps kids and adults pick good reads and brings a big smile to everyone that walks in.
Mayor White hopes they could reconsider its decision at the next council meeting on July 12, two days before Browser has to move out.
“Browser is still at the library for now,” White Settlement Public Library told Love Meow.
