The Senior Mouse Catcher In Action
Stourbridge News reported that George belongs to Ian Tomlinson, the Stourbridge Junction Station’s supervisor, and he has been a permanent fixture at the station since his last owner emigrated.

According to his Twitter bio, the orange cat is the senior mouse catcher and “works” at the railway station.
With such a strong and present social media following, George can now add furry ambassador to his list of responsibilities. “Hopefully he’s brought a little bit of ginger happiness to lots of people’s lives along with some positivity and awareness for the railway environment and what makes a railway run,” a spokesperson for George said. “Life is incredibly difficult for many people at the moment and if George can raise a smile just for a second and take people’s minds off their worries then he’s done his best.”
Uploaded to the Rainham Rail Enthusiast YouTube account, a video depicted life at the station and showcased just how amazing it is to have George as a member of the team.
