Boswell, an artist, is looking for someone over 45 years of age who can drive a manual car in order to take sick cats to the vet. The job is long-term, with a minimum period of six months, according to the post.
“You’ll no doubt thrive best if you are the type of person who appreciates nature and likes tranquility — and rest comfortably in your own company,” the job advert says. “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.”
Boswell said suitable candidates will be interviewed via Skype at the end of August. After a period of volunteering in October, the paid work, which includes free housing, water and electricity, starts November 1.
The advert has been shared more than 20,000 times, and over 200 candidates have emailed Bowell so far, according to the BBC.
