Bucharest: An internet startup in Romania has filled the post of communications manager with an unlikely candidate – a cat.
The interview process for the role lasted months and received more than 700 applications from a variety of cats (or, more likely, their owners). Eventually, the successful applicant was revealed: a nine-month-old Scottish Fold with a very suitable name: Boss. The company, Catbox.ro, focuses on personalized gifts, and they have announced that Boss (the cat, I presume) will stamp all the gift boxes before they are dispatched to their customers. Boss is starting on a generous salary (for a cat, anyway) of EUR200 per month. 25% of the cash will be spent on Boss’s food, while the remainder will be paid to the cat’s owner.
