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 auto.

Destiny Johnson is a digital reporter at First Coast News who is very allergic to cats but would risk it and visit you if you landed this job because the island of Syros is singing a siren's song to her.

You could live out your wildest cat lady/cat daddy dreams on a small handsome island in Greece - and get paid to do it.

God's Little People Cat Rescue, a feline rehabilitation center and shelter in Syros, Greece, recently posted a job opportunity for a live-in caretaker to help with the shelter's 55 cats.

The part-time job (which means you'll have loads of free time to explore the island) also has accommodation included in the sanctuary manager's house, which ain't too shabby at all.

However, shortly after the God's Little People Cat Rescue posted the job opportunity to their Facebook page, they were inundated with applications.

They have now drafted five volunteers to narrow down the 3,000 applications from people offering to take their place to a pool of 50-100.

"I am looking for someone who can take over the daily running of my Greek cat sanctuary in my absence".

The dream candidate is 'responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined - and really, with a heart of gold!'

All expenses for the cats will also be paid for.

"We are located in a secluded nature preserved area which is very tranquil and quiet in the winter time but busy during the summer".

" 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", reads part of the advertisement.

Love cats, but humans not so much?

When Joan Bowell posted the job offer on Facebook on August 5 she was not expecting to be deluged by respondents.

The job, which begins on Nov 1 this year, will be a long-term one, with a minimum of six months required.
