Cat Who Controls Pests At Train Station Now Has Her Own High-Vis Jacket


A cat who patrols Huddersfield station in search of pests can now boast that she’s an official part of the team.

Felix is a permanent fixture on the platforms as she keeps them clear of rats and mice and now has her very own high-vis jacket and name badge.

Her badge gives her the full title of ‘Senior Pest Controller’ and she looks every inch an official TransPennine Express employee - albeit a cute and furry one.

Felix has been patrolling Huddersfield station in West Yorkshire since she was just a nine-week-old kitten in 2011 and both commuters and staff have grown incredibly fond of her.

With her very own cat flap at the ticket barrier and a Facebook page dedicated to her, Felix has become something of a celebrity.

So it was only right that she was rewarded for all her hard work by being given the jacket to show she is as much a part of the station as any other staff member.

Felix told her Facebook followers (she can type too - genius) that she had been given her new senior role in “recognition of what I’ve been doing for nearly five years”.

We hope she got a pay rise, too.
