Check out Felix the train cat who is becoming an international celebrity

Postman Pat may have a famous black and white cat, but he is not the only one.

Huddersfield train station also has their own live-in black and white cat, who is climbing the popularity ranks thanks to her own personal Facebook page with almost 70,000 likes.

Felix the Huddersfield Station cat, is senior pest controller for TransPennine Express at Huddersfield Railway Station in West Yorkshire, UK and she is slowly winning hearts across the world with her benign stare and gorgeous fluffy coat.

Felix began ‘working’ at the train station five years ago, when she was just nine weeks old.

Her colleagues appear to be very taken their feline friend, spending time capturing a number of videos of Felix at work and play around the train station and posting them on Facebook for her growing legion of fans.

Felix has become a bit of an international star lately, with media outlets in Germany and the UK covering her recent promotion to senior pest controller such as BuzzfeedUK and The Independent UK.

After five years of hard graft, Felix now has her own hi-vis vest and name badge as well as a cat-door on one of the barriers so she can go about her work undisrupted.

Well done to Felix on her promotion and all the best for her future endeavours!
