There's no reason to be miserable at your 9-5 desk job — we just found another dream job, and you're going to want to apply right meow.

God's Little People Cat Rescue is looking for "a mature and genuinely passionate cat lover who knows how to handle many cats." The kicker? The position is based in the Greek island of Syros. Pretty safe to say this isn't your typical LinkedIn or Glassdoor posting, guys. I mean, this will be your playground every day, so things could definitely be worse.

There are no formal requirements to apply, but they're looking for someone who can take over running the sanctuary in the current owner's absence for about six months. Based on experience, "the 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!" It's also a big bonus if you're a vet or nurse; the 55 cats need to be fed and medicated — and of course, loved.

The job is part-time but salaried, although exact details are unspecified. There's also an unpaid training period that can last for about two to four weeks. The good news is that you'll be living rent free in a secluded house in Greece, and electricity and water are also paid for.

If you're chosen to interview, you'll arrange a Skype call at the end of August. The position officially begins on November 1. Told you you'll want to apply right meow.
