Dream Job Alert: Move To A Greek Island And Take Care Of Cats All Day

Updated: August 21, 2018

Every once in a while a dream job crosses our desk that is just too good to not pass on. That happened today when we learned of an opportunity to move to a Greek island–Syros to be exact–to take care of cats. And get paid. It sounded too good to be true, but it’s not, just look at the job listing.

Per the job listing:

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 + cat-whispering skills 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 of October (you will be volunteering for the first 2-4 weeks but with free accommodation). The paid job starts on November 1st 2018.

You had us at view of the Aegean sea and spending our day with cats!

You can apply to the job by emailing joanbowell@yahoo.com. While they have apparently been inundated with applications, they are still accepting them until the end of August, so there is still time!

Purrrrrfect job (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves) here you come!
