“The global sensation”
It will make you laugh, and it will make you cry; Felix the Railway Cat is the Sunday Times bestselling, extraordinary tale of a close-knit community and its amazing bond with a very special cat.
When Felix arrived at Yorkshire’s Huddersfield Train Station as an eight-week-old kitten, no one knew just how important this little ball of fluff would become.
Although she has a vital job to do as ‘Senior Pest Controller’, Felix is much more than just an employee of TransPennine Express. Felix changes lives in surprising ways.
She is always ready to leap into action and save the day: from bringing a boy with autism out of his shell to providing comfort to a runaway child shivering on the platform one night.
So, when tragedy hits the team at Huddersfield, it is only Felix who can pull them back together.
But a chance friendship with a commuter that she waits for on the platform every morning finally gives Felix the recognition she deserves, catapulting her to international stardom.

“Full of funny and heartwarming stories... [It] will delight all cat lovers.”
- Your Cat
“PURRFECT Summer Reads material because [it is] easy to read and put[s] you in a good mood... ([It turns out that] a social media account translates into a book pretty well when it’s well-researched. Author Kate Moore spent countless hours with all of Felix’s humans, interviewing and observing them (and Felix) and has done a wonderful job of really understanding and sharing the amazing sense of community at Huddersfield Station... A really, really sweet read.”
“We think there’s nothing better than a cat story well told, and Felix certainly is that. This book is a delight from cover to cover. The story of cat, station, staff, and passengers is woven deftly together in a way that consistently had us saying, ‘Just one more chapter…’ Very highly recommended!”

“This book made me laugh, and it made me cry – what more could you want from a book? Touching and heart-warming, I loved it... A little ray of sunshine in a bleak world. Read it, you’ll be glad you did.”
“I have just finished reading this delightful story, written with great warmth and humour by Kate Moore, who has captured the essence of this fantastic feline and her warm-hearted friends... It may not win the Nobel literary prize, but it will certainly win the ‘feel good’ prize from me.”
“I bought this book yesterday and I can’t put it down, it’s absolutely brilliant, what adventures and mischief this cat has got up to, and as for the pigeon story I roared with laughter, it’s a great read for everyone. I’m not a cat lover, but Felix you made me laugh and cry both at the same time. Long may you ‘reign’ over your kingdom.”
“Wonderful whimsical read, superb... I highly recommend this book... you won’t regret purchasing it.”
