Crazy Cat Lady: An Australian woman, named Sophie, has posted an online ad looking for someone to sit on her bed and pretend to be a cat so she can sleep.
Her ad reads:
I would like to state that this add is not a joke and all joke replies will be deleted. If however, you want to make some extra cash and dont have much previous work experiance this may be for you.
What is required you ask?
I’m looking for somebody to curl up on the end of my bed an purr softly like a sleeping kitten as I sleep. I have had a lot of trouble sleeping and I think it would be comforting falling asleep to the sound of a cat purring and also knowing that someone is there to keep an eye on me as I sleep.
I’d also appreciate it if you could arrive in a realistic cat costume and enter my house on all fours . I have always found great comfort in the idea of having a pet cat but I just dont have the time to clean up after one and feed one.
I’d be prepared to pay you up to $60 if you can make a nice and relaxing and consistant purr and maybe $35 to $40 if you ‘lets say’ aint the best .
The shift times will vary and i’m really looking for a rotating roster of one or two permanent ‘staff’. I was thinking that the ideal candidate would be able to cover 3 nights between the hours of 11pm – 6 am.
I will provide you one bowl of milk and one bowl of tuna for if you get hungry or thirsty during the night. I’d prefer if you didn’t eat or drink whilst I am still awake as I would find that very off putting.
You can of course use my bathroom. But only two hours after I fall asleep to ensure that I won’t suddenly wake up to find the room empty.
Please no time wasters,
