Get Paid To Live On A Greek Island And Play With Cats

The candidate would take over the cat sanctuary on the Greek island of Syros, in exchange for a free stay on the island and a modest salary.

You can now get paid to head to a Greek island and look after a load of cats.

God's Little People Cat Rescue, based in a "secluded nature preserved area" on the Greek island "paradise" of Syros, is looking for someone to look after 55 cats for while the sanctuary's owner, Joan Bowell, is away.

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.

The successful applicant will live in a semi-detached modern small home.

"I am looking for someone who can take over the daily running of my Greek cat sanctuary in my absence". You will be responsible for taking the cats to the vet in case of illness and you'll need to be able to drive a manual auto. Apart from feeding the cats the cats will also need heaps of love and attention.

"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", reads the Facebook posting.

For more information on how to apply, visit God's Little People Cat Rescue's page.

Although the job posting has gone viral and spawned lots of amusing tweets, it's important to remember that the real mission behind the God's Little People Cat Rescue is no laughing matter.

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 job posting on Facebook has been shared more than 26,000 times in its first week, and Bowell says in a follow-up post that she's received "a bazillion" emails about the position.
