The charming follow up to the Sunday Times bestseller Felix the Railway Cat, packed with more exciting adventures from his life on and off duty at Huddersfield Railway Station.

'Full of funny and heart-warming stories, this is the remarkable tale of Felix and Bolt, the ultimate pest-controlling duo' Sunday Express

Felix, Senior Pest Controller at Huddersfield station, has been at the heart of a close-knit community since the day she arrived as a kitten.

But now, having risen to fame, everyday life at the station has become rather hectic; while reporters and fans clamour for a glimpse of her, Felix and her human co-workers find themselves, and the station, in quite a whirlwind.

With the job seemingly too big for one fluffy feline to handle, it seems only sensible to recruit a young apprentice to the team: enter, Bolt.

Full of funny and heart-warming stories, with personal tales from Felix's biggest fans, this is the remarkable tale of Felix and Bolt, the ultimate pest-controlling duo.
