It’s just like the Mamma Mia movie, but instead of Meryl Streep going through her history with a song, there are a lot of loving cats.

The post goes on saying “I am looking for someone who can take over the daily running of my Greek cat sanctuary in my absence. You will have 55 cats in your care and need to be able to overview them all + feed and medicate (big added bonus if you’re trained vet. nurse!). [sic] You will be expected to take the cat to the vet in case of illness and therefore will need to be able to drive a manual car. Apart from feeding the cats the cats will also need heaps of love and attention.”
