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!
