We make sure all the animals get plenty of fresh air and exercise.

0:00:100:00:14

-Lots of water, too, don't forget.

-That's very important.

Lots of animals make excellent pets,

# Have you met My pet and me? #

0:01:100:01:13

Today I'm in Huddersfield to meet Ethan and his friend Nevie.

0:01:170:01:21

They are taking me to meet a very special cat.

0:01:210:01:24

Come on, let's go say hello.

0:01:240:01:27

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:390:01:41

Hi. You must be Ethan and you must be Nevie.

0:01:410:01:44

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Lovely to meet you.

0:01:440:01:46

-And you must be Ethan's dad.

-Hello, Ferne.

0:01:460:01:49

So, I hear that you have a very special cat to tell me about.

0:01:490:01:52

-Yep.

-But do we need to go somewhere first?

0:01:520:01:55

-BOTH:

-No!

-But we're in a train station.

0:01:550:01:57

I thought we'd have to get a train somewhere.

0:01:570:02:00

-Felix the cat lives here where my daddy works.

-OK.

0:02:000:02:05

-So, does that mean that your daddy is a stationmaster?

-I am, yes.

0:02:050:02:09

-That is very cool.

-Come on, let's go find Felix.

0:02:090:02:12

Sounds great. Come on.

0:02:120:02:14

TRAIN TOOTS

0:02:150:02:17

So, this is Felix.

0:02:200:02:22

-Yeah.

-Wow!

0:02:220:02:24

-Is Felix a girl or a boy?

-A girl.

-A girl.

-She is beautiful.

0:02:240:02:28

So, why does this station have its very own cat?

0:02:280:02:31

To help the station to be clean.

0:02:310:02:35

-What does she do to help the station be clean?

-Chase mice and rats.

0:02:350:02:40

That's a very important job.

0:02:400:02:42

So what do you love about Felix?

0:02:420:02:44

Cos she's so soft and she's so friendly.

0:02:440:02:48

She is. And what about you, Ethan?

0:02:480:02:50

She goes on adventures and she's got lots of friends.

0:02:500:02:54

Oh, she sounds great! What friends does Felix have?

0:02:540:02:57

The people here,

0:02:570:02:59

the people on the trains

0:02:590:03:01

and the internet.

0:03:010:03:03

Wow! She sounds like a very popular cat.

0:03:030:03:06

What other things does Felix like?

0:03:060:03:09

Getting her back scratched.

0:03:090:03:11

Oh, I bet she loves that.

0:03:110:03:13

-And what else, Nevie?

-She likes getting a cuddle.

0:03:130:03:16

Ooh, she looks very cuddly.

0:03:160:03:19

Rory, can you tell us some more facts about cats like Felix here?

0:03:190:03:24

-RORY:

-Of course, Ferne.

0:03:240:03:26

One.

0:03:260:03:28

A group of cats is called a clowder.

0:03:280:03:30

Two.

0:03:320:03:33

A male cat is called a tom,

0:03:330:03:35

and a female cat is called a molly or a queen.

0:03:350:03:39

Three.

0:03:410:03:42

Cats have really good eyesight,

0:03:420:03:45

which means they can see well in the dark.

0:03:450:03:48

Four.

0:03:480:03:50

Cats have very rough tongues

0:03:500:03:52

and they use them to clean and groom themselves.

0:03:520:03:56

Five.

0:03:560:03:58

A cat can jump almost seven times their own height.

0:03:580:04:01

That's incredible!

0:04:010:04:03

Even though Felix is a working cat,

0:04:250:04:27

she still needs the same love and care as a cat that lives in a home.

0:04:270:04:31

-Is this is where Felix sleeps?

-Yes.

-She has a lot of toys.

-And a bed.

0:04:310:04:35

-Wow! It's a perfect little room, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:04:350:04:38

A comfy bed is important

0:04:380:04:40

because some cats can sleep for up to 16 hours a day.

0:04:400:04:43

-That is a long time, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:04:430:04:45

-And it's great cos her room seems quite quiet, doesn't it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:04:450:04:50

Which is also important because cats have very good hearing.

0:04:500:04:54

They can hear so much better than we can.

0:04:540:04:56

They can even hear things that we can't.

0:04:560:04:59

-Can you show me where Felix gets her food?

-Come, on.

-Come on.

0:04:590:05:03

Ethan, what type of food does Felix eat?

0:05:140:05:17

-Dry food and wet food.

-Ooh, that sounds yummy.

0:05:170:05:20

-And how many times a day do you feed her?

-Twice.

0:05:200:05:23

We need to make sure there's water in her bowl.

0:05:230:05:26

That's very good cos cats can get thirsty.

0:05:260:05:28

-Should we give her some food now?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:05:280:05:31

All of it. Mmm.

0:05:310:05:33

Yummy.

0:05:330:05:35

-Shall we put in some wet food?

-Yeah.

0:05:350:05:38

-That is a good cat dinner, isn't it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:05:380:05:42

TRAIN TOOTS

0:05:420:05:45

Where does Felix go to the toilet?

0:05:450:05:47

In her litter tray.

0:05:470:05:49

-And Ethan, how many times do you have to clean that?

-Every day.

0:05:490:05:53

Ooh, that's very important, isn't it?

0:05:530:05:56

Now, one last thing before we do anything else.

0:05:560:05:59

-We need to wash our hands.

-Wash our hands.

0:05:590:06:02

-Hi, Louise.

-Hi, Louise.

-Hi, Louise.

0:06:230:06:26

Hi, Ferne. Hi, Ethan. Hi, Nevie. Hi, Felix.

0:06:260:06:29

-Is it time for a pamper today?

-Yeah, definitely. Isn't it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:06:290:06:33

Because Felix lives at the train station,

0:06:330:06:36

her coat and paws can get dirty with the soot from the trains.

0:06:360:06:39

Usually cats lick themselves to stay nice and clean,

0:06:390:06:43

-but Felix is too mucky for that, isn't she?

-Yes.

0:06:430:06:45

-What do we need to do?

-Today we need to give Felix a good bath and brush.

0:06:450:06:50

-That sounds good, doesn't it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Shall we get started?

-Yes.

0:06:500:06:54

I love this bit.

0:06:540:06:55

Aw!

0:06:570:06:59

Here she is.

0:06:590:07:00

She definitely needs a shave.

0:07:020:07:04

Can you pass the clippers, please?

0:07:040:07:06

Felix has a few knots so they need clipping off.

0:07:070:07:10

-They definitely do, don't they?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:07:100:07:13

CLIPPERS BUZZ

0:07:130:07:14

Mats and knots are caused when cats' hair gets tangled and dirty.

0:07:140:07:18

They can be uncomfortable,

0:07:180:07:20

so you should brush and groom your cat often to help prevent them.

0:07:200:07:24

-She's being very good, isn't she?

-She's being a very good girl.

0:07:240:07:28

-She's quite used to this.

-She has quite a few underneath.

0:07:280:07:32

-That's all Felix's knots out.

-Wow!

0:07:340:07:36

-Look at that! That's huge, isn't it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:07:360:07:39

-So, what's next, Louise?

-Next is a bath for Felix.

0:07:390:07:43

It's important to keep Felix's head dry

0:07:490:07:51

so that water doesn't get in her ears.

0:07:510:07:54

We're even using special cat shampoo.

0:07:540:07:58

She's going to be nice and squeaky-clean.

0:07:580:08:01

Not all cats like water,

0:08:030:08:05

but Felix is quite used to this

0:08:050:08:07

and Louise knows exactly what she's doing.

0:08:070:08:10

Louise is cleaning Felix's paws, which is very important.

0:08:100:08:14

Because she works in the station, her paws can get mucky.

0:08:140:08:18

It's good to keep them nice and clean.

0:08:180:08:20

If you have an outdoor cat, it's also good to check your cat's paws

0:08:200:08:24

for any cuts or splinters they might have picked up when out and about.

0:08:240:08:28

She's ready for her rinse.

0:08:280:08:30

Time to dry this cat.

0:08:380:08:41

Good girl, Felix.

0:08:410:08:44

Louise is going to use a special hairdryer.

0:08:440:08:47

Sometimes the loud noise might scare some cats,

0:08:470:08:50

but Felix is quite used to it.

0:08:500:08:52

She's being very good. Ready?

0:08:520:08:54

HAIRDRYER WHIRS

0:08:540:08:57

-Is that her all done, Louise?

-All done now.

0:09:100:09:13

-She looks fantastic, doesn't she?

-Yes.

-Great job.

0:09:130:09:17

I think Felix is definitely ready for a day at work at the station,

0:09:170:09:21

and she can see all of her friends and her fans.

0:09:210:09:24

My Pet And Me!

0:09:270:09:29

-Do you think Felix knows where all the trains are going?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:09:340:09:38

If Felix could do anything in the whole world,

0:09:380:09:41

what would she do?

0:09:410:09:43

If Felix the station cat could do anything,

0:09:470:09:52

she would take a boat to an island.

0:09:520:09:56

She would play in the sea,

0:09:570:10:00

and make sandcastles.

0:10:000:10:02

She would see a mermaid singing on a rock.

0:10:030:10:07

And they would sing a song together.

0:10:070:10:10

-# La-la-la!

-Meow-meow-meow! #

0:10:100:10:12

I think we're ready to go work with Felix for the day.

0:10:270:10:31

I can't wait to see what she gets up to.

0:10:310:10:33

-Are we ready?

-Yes!

-Yes!

-What do we need to do?

0:10:330:10:36

-Go and find Felix!

-Find Felix!

0:10:360:10:38

Yeah, let's go!

0:10:380:10:39

Where are you, Felix? We can't find you.

0:10:450:10:49

Felix! Shh-shh-shh-shh.

0:10:490:10:52

I think Felix is in the information booth.

0:10:550:10:57

That's where you can find out all about the trains

0:10:570:11:00

and what time they leave and arrive at. Should we go test Felix?

0:11:000:11:04

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Come on.

0:11:040:11:06

Hello there, madam.

0:11:110:11:13

Can you tell me if the train to Wolverhampton is running on time?

0:11:130:11:17

Meow, meow.

0:11:170:11:19

It is? Great, thank you.

0:11:190:11:22

Is there sandwiches on the train to London?

0:11:280:11:31

-Meow.

-Thank you.

0:11:310:11:33

Excuse me, Felix. Is the train to Leeds on time?

0:11:370:11:40

Meow, meow.

0:11:400:11:42

Thank you.

0:11:420:11:44

Felix is very adventurous,

0:11:500:11:53

and she loves exploring the train station.

0:11:530:11:56

She works really hard to keep mice and pigeons away from the platforms.

0:12:000:12:05

Wow, what a busy day we've had!

0:12:120:12:14

Felix definitely works hard, doesn't she?

0:12:140:12:17

-Yes.

-She worked here for five years.

0:12:170:12:20

Wow! That is a very long time.

0:12:200:12:22

I have had so much fun. Thank you for such a fantastic day.

0:12:220:12:27

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:12:270:12:29

But I've got one last question. How am I going to get home?

0:12:290:12:33

-BOTH:

-On the train!

0:12:330:12:35

Of course! TRAIN TOOTS

0:12:350:12:37

Bye, Felix.

0:12:370:12:39

My Pet And Me!

0:12:420:12:44

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:460:12:48

-Hi, Hector.

-How was your day?

-Oh, it was fantastic.

0:12:480:12:52

-I had a great time with my friends. It was really fun.

-Oh, great.

0:12:520:12:56

As you can see, I've been catching up on some cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:560:13:00

He's loving it.

0:13:000:13:01

Pets are great, but remember you shouldn't touch an animal

0:13:010:13:05

-unless the owner says it's OK first.

-Two pets you can play with are ours.

0:13:050:13:09

Go to the website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:090:13:12

What a fantastic time we've had. We love meeting you and your pets.
