Huddersfield Train Station…….a model of equality and diversity

Meet Felix. A cat who has just proven that hard work does pay off.


After five years of service at Huddersfield railway station, Felix has been given a promotion. She’s now been given a proper job title (Senior pest controller at Huddersfield Railway Station), a high-visibility vest and a name badge.

The exciting news came last week when Transpennine Express decided to reward the feline for her service to the network. Pictures of the promotion were posted to her very own Facebook page and she can be seen proudly flaunting her new jacket and new job title.

In just a week, Felix’s Facebook page has got over 1,500 likes, adding to the 8,500 likes she has from fans all over the world.

The station even has its own catflap at the ticket barriers so Felix can move around whenever she wants. Felix was first brought to the station at just nine weeks old and since then, she has become a favourite with commuters and station staff.

Felix’ daily job includes patrolling the station platforms for any mice lurking around.

But she is often spotted going out of her way to help with customer enquiries. One of the staff members who looks after Felix said the fame ‘hasn’t quite gone to her head.’ They added: ‘As with most cats they already think the world revolves around them. ‘She’s getting more treats and more attention so all in all she’s very happy.’
