Love Cats? This May Be Your Dream Job!


Greek Cat Rescue

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. Is you’re idea of a dream job include being on a beautiful island on the Aegean sea while looking after cats? If so read on. My HuMom discovered this job opportunity while reading the blog, “M. K. Clinton’s Barking from the Bayou“.

God’s Little People Cat Rescue, is a registered charity that operates a no-kill, no-cage, lifetime sanctuary & adoption center based on the Greek island of Syros. It’s currently home to more than 65 rescue cats. They also daily feed a colony of stray cats on the island. All the cats are neutered & all cats receive a good quality food, fresh water, shelter & medical attention.

I’ve cut & pasted the entire ad for you to see.

A very special position & living circumstance on offer on a little Greek island called Syros (a small paradise no less!) for a mature & genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats & would love their company! 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 & need to be able to overview them all + feed & medicate ( bonus if you’re trained vet or 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 salary. The daily hours is that of a part time job (approx. 4 hours) & 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 & therefore will need to be able to drive a manual car. We are located in a secluded nature preserved area which is very tranquil & 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 & likes tranquility – & rest comfortably in your own company. That said, you’ll never feel lonely in the company of the cats, 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 – & with a heart of gold! Apart from feeding the cats the cats will also need heaps of love & attention. You will at times be expected to trap or handle a feral or non-sociable cat, so knowing something about a cats psychology 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. To get an accurate idea of the salary, please follow this link to see an average Greek salary and keep in mind this is a part time job WITH house, water & electricity included for free!

Please send your application with a photo and relevant information to
We will look through all the applications & do Skype calls with the most suitable candidates at the end of August.

That sounds like a cat lovers dream. Personally, I find Dottie & Jerry Underfoot enough cat experience for me. But maybe this is your purrfect job. I suggest if that’s the case, apply. What have you got to lose?
