If your dream job involves cuddling with cats on a stunning Mediterranean island, your wish just came true. A cat sanctuary on the Greek island of Syros is looking for a full-time, paid cat caregiver, and is currently reviewing applications from anywhere in the world - including Canada!
Before you get too excited, let's make one thing clear - this sanctuary houses 55 cats. So, you'll be expected to single-handedly watch over, care for and love all 55 of them. You'll also have to administer medication as required, and you may have deal with some not-so friendly cat personalities.
But, here are the benefits. According to the job post, you'll only have to work about four hours a day. You'll get a lovely modern home - complete with a garden and gorgeous island views - all to yourself. Amenities are included, plus all the adorable furry kittens you can handle.
The duration of the job is a minimum of 6 months, beginning in October. The first 2-4 weeks will be a "volunteer" training period, but free accommodations are provided. The ideal candidate is someone who lives in the company of several cats, with extensive cat caregiving experience. The candidate would ideally like cats more than people, and enjoys nature and tranquility.
The job post does say that candidates over 45 years of age are preferred, but it is not a requirement. As long as they're "responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined" - and a seasoned cat whisperer, of course!
