A much-loved feline who has been guarding a railway station in West Yorkshire for nearly five years has received a promotion in recognition of her unwavering commitment to her role.
Since her early days as a little feline, she has been an esteemed and well-liked part of the station crew, ensuring that it remains free from pests and rodents.
Meet Felix, a black and white feline who has been appointed as the Senior Pest Controller by TransPennine Express. This prestigious role requires her to keep the station’s platforms free of mice and other vermin. Felix has been at the station since she was just nine weeks old. However, in recent times, she faced some challenges when the barriers installed to catch fare dodgers blocked her path to patrol the station. But, thanks to the train operators who recognized Felix’s dilemma, a unique cat flap was installed to allow her easy access. This new system has been a success, and Felix can now go about her business without any hassles. Over the years, she has won the hearts of commuters and gained the support of her colleagues. With over 4,000 followers, Felix even has her own Facebook page.
According to the staff, Felix is considered a member of the family, even though she seems to act like the one in charge.
Felix’s diligent efforts have earned her a personal cat door, and she has won over the affection of daily travelers.
Felix has been a dedicated employee of Huddersfield Railway Station for almost a decade now, starting his journey with the company in 2011.

Prepared for the spotlight, the furry quadruped has garnered a following at the TV channel.
According to Chris Bamford, who works as a Customer Services Assistant at the station, the promotion is a way to thank Felix for her hard work over the past five years. Bamford added that Felix’s presence at the station always manages to bring a smile to people’s faces.
When the furry feline was just a little kitten, she was given a moniker by her caretakers who mistook her for a male. Nevertheless, they remained devoted to her despite the error in her name.
Throughout time, many train stations in the United Kingdom have enlisted the help of feline friends to manage their rodent population.
The staff member from Huddersfield is always on the lookout, whether they are inside or outside the station, to ensure that there are no pesky mice running around. They take their duty seriously and are always prepared to act on it.
