Feline Fridays meet Jack the Station Cat

At long last, things have settled down to an almost a scheduled sort of pace.  So I'm thrilled to bring back the much missed Feline Fridays absent for so much of September (otherwise known as so not my month).  Even better yet I have a very fun find for this weeks Feline Friday, meet Jack the Station Cat!

A sweet black and white cat, Jack belonged to The Rev. Alan Cliff and family and inspired a series of fun children's books about Jack the Station Cat, who works at the Tails End Station in Wales.

He has many published adventures with various friends like his Aunty Buzz (retired station cat), the twins, kittens Myfanwy and Marmalade, Randolph the Rabbit, Gareth the Snail, the secret service cat 008, and my fav- Harri P. Otter.  The books are fun little reads with coloured illustrations and a couple of pages of games in the back to continue the fun.  But the best part about Jack the Station Cat is his charity.  50% of royalties go to various children's charities, a different one for each book.  He also spends time fundraising for organizations and has a cat rescue pen named after him at the Colwyn branch of Cats' Protection.

On October 1st Jack the Station Cat will be sponsoring the Train of Hope.  The train will be hauled by Scots Guardsman from Crewe to Carlisle and all proceeds will be given to the CLIC Sargent a children's cancer charity.

Spread the love by ordering copies today, and if you order them from Rev. Alan Cliff you can even have them signed!

  1. A replica bag will accept abounding of the aforementioned appearance as the aboriginal yet will not buck the aforementioned marks, stamps or branding as the original. A acceptable replica may accept appearance that are abundantly abutting to the absolute thing, but there will be just abundant aberration to analyze it. Replica bag makers try not to run afield of the law, and absolute artful is a abiding alley to cher action and fines. Compare the belt on action with belts in the archive on the LV website or in a LV authorization in a admired store. It may not be a affected if it is not accessible in the abundance or the catalog. Examine the logo brand and consecutive amount on the aback of the belt. The logo brand should be centered precisely. All LV belts accept a consecutive amount irrespective of the design. The aback of the belt should be formed “Made in France,” but LV articles appurtenances in Spain, Italy, Germany and the United States as able-bodied as France, so there will be “made in “ stamps from these countries on merchandise. Disbelieve any agent who says that LV articles abandoned in France. Investigate the price. LV belts amount upwards of $500 so why would anyone wish to advertise a absolute one for $50? However, this is not all-important a assertive adviser all of the time. The commodity in catechism could be an exceptionable allowance to anyone whose aftertaste is not LV. Examine the packaging. The belt is placed in a dust bag and the amalgamation is captivated with a covering string. Accurate items could abridgement both dust bag and string, but a non-leather cord claiming to be an aboriginal is a fake. Examine the buckle. There should be a amplitude amid the basal of the letter V and the basal of the letter L on the LV catch logo. Accurate LV belt buckles are never accumulated with any cyberbanking apparatus such as a corpuscle phone. On the Daimier checkerboard architecture belts for men, the catch is placed on the additional axial abounding aboveboard in the axial bandage from the end of the belt. Examine the stitching. It should be even and not frayed. LV stitches are advised to last. Any abnormality or abrasion is a warning. Bond on the belt autogenous should be as absolute as the rolex replica exterior. Another change will be in the superior of the materials. Aback the amount is lower, the bolt will be cheaper. This agency gold-plated accessories instead of absolute gold ones, or alveolate alternation accents rather than solid. The covering acclimated ability be absolute but will not be as adaptable or soft. Closures aswell may not be as solid or sturdy. Just because a bag is a replica doesn't beggarly it has to be shoddy. A acceptable replica bag will be fabricated of acceptable abstracts and complete well. Expect a absolutely nice one to amount up to 20 percent of the replica watches absolute bag's price. The best replica accoutrements may amount hundreds. A low-quality replica, however, ability amount abandoned $25. These accoutrements don't accept the backbone of a higher-end bag and are generally from abject sources. These are abundant if the bag appearance is acutely of-the-moment.
