Seems like loving a cat can get you a job now. There is a vacancy in Greece which is a dream job for many cat lovers. A cat sanctuary is offering a paid job just to take care of the cats. God's Little People Cat Rescue had recently posted on their Facebook page about the vacancy. It is a privately funded sanctuary which is located on the Greek island of Syros. They rescue cats and feed them. And now, they are looking for a candidate on paid basis who could come to the island city and be a caretaker of the cats.
At the top of their post, they had mentioned that it is not a joke and people can feel free to contact to verify its genuinity. They are calling "for a mature and genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats and would love their company! "
The post reads, "You will have 55 cats in your care and need to be able to overview them all + feed and medicate (big added bonus if you’re trained vet. nurse!). As part of the job you’ll have a fully paid (incl. water & electricity) semidetached modern tiny house with it’s own garden (direct view to the Aegean Sea!) plus a salary. The daily hours is that of a part time job (approx. 4 hours) and the salary reflects the fact that you get the house for free (with everything paid). All expenses for the cats will of course be paid incl. all veterinary care. You will be expected to take the cat to the vet in case of illness and therefore will need to be able to drive a manual car. We are located in a secluded nature preserved area which is very tranquil and quiet in winter time but busy during the summer."
It further read, "You’ll no doubt thrive best if you are the type of person who appreciates nature and likes tranquility - and rest comfortably in your own company. That said, you’ll never feel lonely in the company of the cats and you’ll be expected to live with a small handful of cats in your house. From experience the job is most suitable for someone 45+ years of age, who’s responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined - and really, with a heart of gold! Apart from feeding the cats the cats will also need heaps of love and attention. You will at times be expected to trap or handle a feral or non-sociable cat, so knowing something about a cats psychology too is important + cat-whispering skills should come natural to you."
The post also mentioned that it will be a long term job. However working for a minimum of 6 months is required with 1 month as induction which will begin in October.
The person will also get free accommodation. After 1 month of induction in October, the paid job will begin from November.
The interested candidates are asked to send their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org and after the shortlisting, the interview will be taken on skype.
So all cat lovers, what are you waiting for? Isn't this a dream job for you?
