Each to their own I guess. Having said that, I feel as though she might have overreacted?

In her defence, she was actually on a honeymoon in East Yorkshire, Scarborough to be precise. So she appears to have travelled 88 miles there and 88 miles back to see a cat.

I feel sorry for her husband.

Hmmm, she looks familiar! I think I know her. In her sixties, with six cats? and they're crawling all over her?
Yes, I definitely do know her!

Do you want me to pass on a message?

Felix heard she was coming and just pretended to be asleep. Can you blame him?

It's a vicious thing as well scratched one of the train cleaners after it was sleeping on a 142, it's a nuisance can't get your work done when people are taking pics of it.

Now I can understand why you behave the way you are. :p One big mystery solved.

Coincidentally I won't pass comment on the lady in question. I'm not sure a rail forum is the best place to pass judgement on someone with weird and peculiar traits. I send my sympathy.

I bet that some of the people bashing this woman would travel even further than she did to tick off a rare crossover or loop. Not me though!

I travelled all the way to Manchester simply for the last service, so it is not entirely unreasonable

Stupid cow. I would have never had agreed to marry a women who was likely to sob over not meeting a cat. How is she going to face life's trials and tribulations if she can't get over not meeting a cat? I'd divorce her on the spot.

Let divorce be with you.

Get it? :)

Yes but you live in 'Ull and support 'Ull City.

He was probably hoping to see the pussy as well.

They've got married and he still hasn't seen pussy??? Bloody hell what kind of relationship is that? Sounds like a right pair together to me.

Happy to help. I'll pass that kind message on to her too when she gets in. The moggies are waiting. As is her dinner.

You do realise that any policy based on that fine principle would have a devastating effect on much of this forum. Most of it, in fact.

Have some people not got their irony meters turned on before they posted scorn against this woman?

Another planet...
Felix is a she. Presumably the station staff didn't realise that until after she was given a name.

That is the case. Though why a name derived from the Latin felis (meaning cat, obviously) should be gender-specific in any case, I'm not sure...

It's a working railway cat that some people have happened to have noticed and got worked up, they used to be ten a penny and a few still are about - I'm not surprised it got a bit shirty :oops:

I've known a few railway cats over the years and while they tend to be friendly enough, by definition they're also hard as nails and only interact on their own terms!

Perhaps the internet phenomenon thing has gone a bit far though. Making an over 100 mile round trip to see a cat which has free roam seems a bit daft to me.
