Cat Sanctuary in the Making

Mrs Boswell, a Briton, and Mr Boswell, from Denmark, moved to the island of Syros seven years ago. They found kittens thrown away in garbage cans, bony cats relying on scraps, feral and injured cats that needed care.

The couple began taking in strays and working with local veterinarians to improve the health of village cat colony and the overall island population. They backed a sterilisation project, funded dental operations, had sick eyes removed, and nursed motherless kittens through the night.

If the cat dies, Mrs Bowell buries them and places a stone. “Now you hardly see distressed cats on Syros,” Mr Bowell says. “It all started here.”

Today the sanctuary is home to anywhere from 55-70 cats, all led around by the resident caretaker’s cat, Snowy. Mrs Bowell founded God’s Little People Cat Rescue charity to support the sanctuary with donations and started a Facebook page.

Paid Job Offer with Cats

Earlier this week, an organization called God’s Little People Cat Rescue announced it’s hiring for a new caretaker to oversee its cat sanctuary. The job is to live with and take care of their 55 cats for 6 months.

This job comes with a fully paid for the residence and private garden along with a salary. Now, tell me, who doesn’t want to take this job?

So far, the post/album has garnered almost 20 thousand likes, 21 thousand comments and 24 thousand shares. According to The Telegraph, nearly 1,000 Britons applied for the role after the announcement posted by Greek cat sanctuary owner Joan Bowell on Facebook last week went viral.

Ms Bowell’s inbox is brimming with applications from hopeful cat caretakers convinced they are the “responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined” person with a heart of gold she is looking for. Veterinarians, doctors, even refugees applied.

“We were doing a quiet thing on a Greek island –  but no more,” Mrs Bowell’s husband, Richard, 65, told The Telegraph. Check out her post below.

PAID JOB OFFER WITH CATS! (this is genuine and NOT a joke – friends, please feel free to verify!). A very special…

  1. I think it is a wonderful thing they are doing. I wish I could do the same. I live in a neighborhood with feral cats and I feed them because I can’t stand them going hungry. I have even been able to socialize some of the kittens and I have named a few. I don’t have the resources to get them spayed/neutered and it breaks my heart. I am 60 years old and I have told my son that at retirement I want to buy some land and build a tiny house for me and have a little reserve for animals people don’t want and just take care of them.
