Cat lovers, take note: A cat sanctuary located in Greece is offering up the job of a lifetime.
On August 5, God’s Little People Cat Rescue posted about an intriguing “paid job offer with cats” on its Facebook page. The privately-funded sanctuary is located on the Greek island of Syros. According to the organization, they house rescue cats and feed strays in the area. Now, they’re looking for someone to come to Syros and take over cat duties — and they’re willing to pay.
The posting calls for “a mature and genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats and would love their company” to take over running the sanctuary while the owner and founder, Joan Bowell, is away. The chosen applicant would work around four hours per day and have 55 cats in their care. Duties include feeding and medicating them and taking them to the vet (via the sanctuary’s manual car) should they become ill. Part of the job also entails occasionally corralling “a feral or non-sociable cat.”
In exchange for these cat-minding duties, the part-time position comes with”a fully paid (incl. water & electricity) semi-detached modern tiny house with its own garden (direct view to the Aegean Sea!) plus a salary.” Expenses, including food and vet costs, are covered by the sanctuary.
