Station cat

Friday February 24th 2017

Social media sensation Felix has been "signing" copies of her new book at a Huddersfield book store.

The station cat has been adding her paw-print of approval to copies of 'Felix the Railway Cat' by Kate Moore - a biography of her life - at the Huddersfield Waterstones' store inside the station.

Felix - a black and white long-haired feline - has garnered more than 100,000 Facebook fans after she was famously promoted to 'Senior Pest Controller' at Huddersfield Railway Station in 2016.

Speaking to the Huddersfield Examiner , editor Fiona Crosby said: "I am so excited to be publishing this wonderful book about the one-and-only Huddersfield station cat.

"Felix is already a total superstar and I know that her legions of fans will love hearing her hilarious and charming story for the first time."

The moggy was a tiny eight-week old kitten when she first made Huddersfield Station her home, and has become a beloved and has become a tourist attraction in her own right.

The biography celebrates the cute and funny stories of her time at the station, including the tale of how she kept a runaway child warm as they hid on the platform one freezing cold night, the newspaper has reported.

Another anecdote recalls how the feline comforted a boy with autism.

And the benevolence does not stop there. The royalties that Felix will earn from sales in the book will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK.

'Felix the Railway Cat' by Kate Moore is available from Waterstones and Amazon.
