The article reads:
PAID JOB OFFER WITH CATS! (this is genuine and NOT a joke – friends, please feel free to verify!). A very special position and living circumstance on offer on a little Greek island called Syros (a small paradise no less!) for a mature and genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats and would love their company!! 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. 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 + understanding their behaviour should come natural to you. The job is long term but a minimum of 6 months is required with a 1 month intro at the beginning (you will be volunteering for the first 2-4 weeks but with free accommodation).
Syros is a Greek island that is located just off the coast. It has a population of roughly 20,000 and is a very unique place to live. God’s Little People Cat Rescue provide assistance to all of the cats in this area that are in need of help. Dozens of stray cats reside on this island and are looked after by an artist named Joan.
There are also additional perks that need to be mentioned as well as looking after the cats. You get to live on this gorgeous island in a lovely house with a beautiful garden. The views are to die for as well. Obviously the ideal candidate has to be someone who loves and appreciates cats. The job pays the equivalent of $560 US per month.
In the first week, over 3,000 candidates applied and now, sadly for us that have only just discovered this amazing job, they are not taking any more applications – we can but dream!
