If This Isn’t Your Dream Job, Don’t Call Yourself a Crazy Cat Lady

acrocats-featIt’s a circus, but with cats instead of clowns. And they’re hiring.

The Amazing Acro-cats is an entertaining troupe of rescues that’s on tour, and they’re hiring a cat wrangler. (Bonus points if you can drive a 45-foot tour bus!) If it didn’t require that I turn my back on my own boyz while I toured the country, I’d apply in a minute.

The ad appears on Craig’s List, (Chicago area) and duties include caring for a chicken and a groundhog.

Dream job, am I right?

    That sounds fun, but I would rather be home with my kitties.

  2. Patricia Sullivan says:

    Could be fun for a volunteer with no family or cats to take care of, but NO SALARY IN THE WORLD could adequately compensate for proper cat wrangling!!

    I think the cats should just manage themselves, and let the show go on!!

    Is this for real? I could not find the ad on Craigs List Chjicago. I can offer a two for one which means I have an over the road trucker! What would they think about that. Everything mentioned is doable. If it is in fact real, and still open, could you let me know how to contact them. If it isn’t real, at least got a fantastic image of how cool life can be!
