A black and white cat who won the hearts of passengers when she made her home in Tonbridge station has lost her battle against cancer.
Sapphie became a feline legend when, at eight years old, she took up residence at the Southeastern station in 2015.
She needed somewhere to live when her former owners moved away from her house near-by.

Southeastern employees were more than happy to let her move in and Sapphie quickly decided her new abode was just purr-fect.
But as commuters started to learn which treats were her favourite, Southeastern broke the news that Sapphie had "succumbed to an illness".
It's believed she had a cancerous lump in her stomach, and died despite an appeal raising several hundreds pounds to pay for her treatment.
A statement from Southeastern said: ""Sapphie" the resident station cat who we know many of you loved and adored, has passed away after an illness.
"We're looking to create a plaque in her memory and will have more details soon."
Tributes soon came in through social media, with Gladstone, the 11 Downing Street moggie saying: "RIP Sapphie who worked at Tonbridge railway station"
Celtic Rochelle said: "RIPurrs darling Sapphie", and fellow feline Kiki tweeted: "R.I.P my thoughts are with you Sapphie train station cat."
