    Loveerrrrly idea - pusses on travels are always a bonus :)

    A Bangkok cat. It was the spitting image of our poor departed Patsy (19 years) so was particularly appealing to us.

    Felix the Huddersfield Station cat promoted to senior pest controller

    [​IMG]

    Felix arrived at Huddersfield Station in 2011 as a nine-week-old kitten, and after almost five years of hard work keeping the West Yorkshire station free of mice, she has been promoted to the position of senior pest controller — and found internet fame.
    To accompany her new title, Felix has also received a new uniform complete with a high-visibility vest and name badge.
    Since her promotion in late January, Felix's online following has skyrocketed, and in the past week her Facebook fans have jumped from 3,000 to almost 30,000.







    But one of the humans who works with Felix at the train station told Buzzfeed: "The fame hasn't quite gone to her head."
    "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."
    Felix was brought into the station to help keep rodents at bay and she has since won the hearts of commuters.
    According to local newspaper The Huddersfield Daily, Felix is paid in cat treats provided by her employer, TransPennine Express.
    When ticket barriers were brought into the station, a cat flap was built in especially for Felix.
    There is no word yet on whether Felix has her sights set on moving up to the role of stationmaster, like Japanese cat Nitama, who patrols Kishi station, south-west of Osaka.
    Nitama was appointed to the role last year, after the station's previous stationmaster cat, the much-loved Tama, died.
    Tama quietly patrolled the station for eight years, dressed in a custom-made cap and uniform and became a popular mascot who attracted tourists from across Japan.

    Few more real ones in Tallinn. The Persian didn't seem to be that happy at being taken for a walk, more like a drag! The last cat seemed to be living wild as you couldn't get close to it.
