Ironically, it was the city council that first voted to provide the library with a cat to assist with the rodent issue.
Councilmen Paul Moore and Elzie Clements - who voted to remove Browser from his home in the 2-1 vote - cited allergy complaints as the reason behind their vote, local news outlet CBS 11 reported.
Mayor Ronald White, a Browser supporter, believes otherwise. "That cat doesn't have anything to do with whether somebody can have their puppy at City Hall," he told the Star Telegram. "The council just went out and did this on their own because they don't like cats."
