It would be a long-term employment, requiring a minimum of six months as well as a volunteer period at the start.

The post has caused an online stir among fans of felines, with many commenting that it is their "idea of heaven".

Joan Bowell, who is originally from Denmark, has been running the sanctuary since 2010 when she and her husband moved to the island for health reasons.

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

"You'll no doubt thrive best if you are the type of person who appreciates nature and likes tranquillity - and rest comfortably in your own company.

"That said, 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."

Joan added that the job is suitable for someone 45+ years of age, who's "responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined - and really, with a heart of gold".

The cat lover finishes with: "Please send your application with a photo and relevant information to joanbowell@yahoo.com.

"We will look through all the applications and do Skype calls with the most suitable candidates at the end of August."

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