Browser the Library Cat Keeps His Job After All

Good news for Browser, the library cat that was on the verge of becoming homeless back on June 14 because a petty library employee (upset because she could not bring her puppy to work) decided he had to go.  The White Settlement, Texas, city council has come to its senses in time to save Browser's home.

According to The Two-Way (breaking news from NPR), Browser's job was saved by "an avalanche of complaints."  
Browser's supporters began a petition drive, and of course the Internet got involved, and more than 1,000 messages from around the world later, the council voted again unanimously to keep Browser.
He'll probably issue a statement of thanks to his supporters at some point but at the moment, his Facebook page isn't available.
Rare as it is, it is especially nice when politicians come to their senses before it's too late to rectify an obviously stupid collective decision like this one. 

Congrats, Browser, now you can go back to sleep.

Here's the original post announcing Browser's plight.
