Dream job alert! Pack your bags to play with cats on a Greek island for a living

If you’re currently sitting at your day job dreaming about the weekend, maybe it’s time for a change. And what a change could be in store for you…


Nestled in the picturesque Greek island of Syros, is a cat sanctuary called God’s Little People Cat Rescue. Home to 55 cats of all shapes, sizes, and ages, this little cat sanctuary is in desperate need of one thing, and one thing only.

A carer for the cats.

We repeat: a carer for the cats. Pack up shop, move to Greece (summer all year round) and care for cats. And get paid for it!

As you let that sink in, we’ll bring you the finer details. Who really needs finer details when you can be paid to chill out with 55 cats and kittens. Dreams DO come true.

To be honest, the finer details are pretty amazing, too. Alongside worshipping, sorry we mean caring, for the cat overlords on an exotic island, you’ll also bag free accommodation, a private garden and you only need to work for four hours each day.

Form 1 November 2018 (plenty of time to tie all the old loose ends together) God’s Little People Cat Rescue will need a long-term cat carer to care for the cats, make sure they’re des and given their medicine.

A volunteer period must be completed at the start before you’re officially in the door and you’ll be required to stay for at least six months. Let’s face it, this is a job for life. You’ll be expected to take your new furry friends to the vet if need be, so driving licence is a must. There’s even a car provided in the role, toot toot.
