The couple first moved to Syros seven years ago and began taking in stray cats.

God's Little People Cat Rescue in Syros, Greece is looking for a caretaker for when the owner needs to be away.

The job offer was posted online recently by Joan Bowell who heads the Facebook page for God's Little People Cat Rescue, with a reassurance that the post is genuine and "not a joke".

And as if this opportunity to curl up with the furry animals wasn't enough, the job also comes with a fully paid for residence and private garden along with a salary.

The job description is as follows: "I am looking for someone who can take over the daily running of my Greek cat sanctuary in my absence". You will be responsible for taking the cats to the vet in case of illness and you'll need to be able to drive a manual vehicle.

Candidates should be comfortable handling feral cats and living in seclusion on a nature preserve that may be busy in summer, but is tranquil and quiet in winter.

They say: "From experience the job is most suitable for someone who is responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined - and really, with a heart of gold!"

'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.

Water, electricity and veterinarian fees for the cats are all paid for.

Almost 1,000 Britons have applied for the role after the announcement posted on Facebook last week by Joan Bowell, a cat sanctuary owner, went viral. The position offered is long term, but with a minimum six months required and a two to four week volunteering trial.

Although the job posting has gone viral and spawned lots of amusing tweets, it's important to remember that the real mission behind the God's Little People Cat Rescue is no laughing matter.
