Mews and Nips: Train Station Cat is Promoted to Senior Pest Controller


A beloved black and white cat who has spent almost five years patrolling a West Yorkshire, UK railway station has been given a promotion for her dedication to her job. The Daily Mail reports that Felix has been named Senior Pest Controller and given a new high-visibility jacket and a name badge. Felix has been working at Huddersfield Railway Station since 2011, catching mice, making friends with commuters on a daily basis and getting paid in cat treats. Read the full story on the Daily Mail.
