Cat lovers offered free house on handsome Greek Island with 55 cats

14 August 2018

The cat sanctuary is in a nature preserve on the island of Syros, a popular tourist destination on the Aegean Sea.

Cat lovers, listen up: there's a dream job up for grabs and you're going to want to quit your current one and move to Greece for it...

The God's Little People Cat Rescue on Syros now cares for 55 stray and feral cats, but the couple who now run the sanctuary are moving on.

Any would-be feline carer would need to be "a mature and genuinely passionate cat lover" and also know how to handle cats in all circumstances, the job advert says.

They have now drafted five volunteers to narrow down the 3,000 applications from people offering to take their place to a pool of 50-100.

The position entails running the cat sanctuary and caring for the 55 furry friends that live there. Apart from feeding the cats the cats will also need heaps of love and attention.

Additionally, the person will be be required to take ill cats to the vet so would need to be able to drive a manual auto.

"We are located in a secluded nature preserved area which is very tranquil and quiet in the winter time but busy during the summer".

The successful applicant will have about 55 cats in their care. "You will at times be expected to trap or handle a feral or non-sociable, so cat whispering skills should come natural to you".

"I am allergic to cats and actually dont like them much".

The position comes with a salary up to euros 600 (pounds 536) a month, with bills, housing and veterinary expenses paid, starting Nov 1, after a voluntary two-week transition period in October.

The Facebook post states that the person who would be the queen/king of Greek cats will need to be able to administer the cats medication and it would be a perk if that person had a background as a vet tech or a nurse!
