Here puss puss puss puss puss puss puss...
If you're one of the people who’ve seen Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again multiple times OR if you're like the ten daily team who seem to have every single one of our friends in Mykonos this year, then this job could be for you.
One thing. You have to like cats. Erm, a lot.
Sound like you? Then try this job listing at God’s Little People Cat Rescue. ON A GREEK ISLAND!!
The cat sanctuary is hiring one person to oversee the care of 55 rescue cats, as well as nearby ferals. The position would be paid and also include lodging at a house with a view of the Aegean Sea.
The job ad reads:
"I am looking for someone who can take over the daily running of my Greek cat sanctuary in my absence. 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. 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."
In terms of experience the job, say the sanctuary, 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," they say, "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."
It then sets out the rules, the dates and all the salary details can be found on a website that sets out Greek wages for the prospective cat parent.
Apparently over 200 people have already travel applied for this rather lovely role -- BRB just checking our passports. And getting some anti-histamines.
