Cat Whisperer Wanted on Greek Isle
A job opening has appeared on Facebook for someone willing to look after 55 cats in a cat sanctuary on the Greek Island, Syros.
If only I could pick up everything and move to Greece tomorrow... Wow! This seems to be a slice of paradise for the true Cat lover. I wonder if they would allow me to bring husband, and domestic short hair, Tammy. Doubtful.
So this is unlikely the job for me, but if you love cats and have been looking for a way to getaway, this may be your gig. The ad requests someone who is a 'mature and genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats and would love their company.'
The job also includes a place to live complete with paid water and electricity. The job is part-time, and the pay is said to reflect those hours. The ad goes on to describe who they feel would be best suited for this opportuniy.
"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. "
