What happens in all those lives that a cat is supposed to have? What does a cat think, and where does it go? Phyllis Arkle’s stories about Alfie, the Railway Cat, take the listener into some of those lives. Not only does Alfie have to charm his way into the good graces of the cranky new station attendant, but he must also entertain esteemed guests while covered in coal dust. Life is never dull at Alfie’s railway station, tended by his friend, Fred, and the newcomer, Hack. Susannah Harker takes great pleasure in sharing each tidbit of Alfie’s escapades. Harker’s voice shares the warmth Alfie provides when he curls up on Granny Davis’s toes or befriends the visiting children. She purrs with Alfie’s delight at being royally fed and yowls with his displeasure at being “catnapped” and whisked away to London. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
