Company hires a cat?: Catbox Bucharest Communications Manager, With the competition for jobs fiercer than ever, the director of communications position at a new start up was always going to be popular job advert.
700 people reportedly applied for the top position, enticed by its salary and bonus package.
Yet applicants might have been a little surprised to learn that they were beaten to the top job by a surprise candidate, a nine-month old cat.
Bossy the cat put paw to paper, accepting a contract for the top job as Director of communications at a Romanian company.
Based in the Romanian capital of Bucharest, the start-up company appointed Bossy, reportedly after a thorough application process.
With a salary of £110 per month plus a healthy bonus of cat food, the nine-month old cat will earn more than some Romanians working in rural areas.
Catbox.ro is an online store, selling original presents that can be delivered in less than 24 hours.
Bossy appears to be a blue Scottish Fold cat, known for their striking orange eyes, lilac coloured fur and folded down ears.
It is believed the breed originated from the Scottish highlands with the cat breed being known as lop-eared.
As demonstrated by Bossy, some Scottish Folds also have a unique party trick; they can stand up on their hind legs.
Photographed wearing a fetching cream tie and a smart white collar shit and black suit jacket, Bossy certainly looks the part.
He appears to be very at home sitting in his new swivel chair, all ready to make all the tough decisions required as a company’s communications director.
However it would appear employees will have to tread carefully as with his fierce orange stare, it doesn’t appear Bossy will be too happy with slackers.
Bossy is set for a busy schedule as he will reportedly be promoting the brand by doing a series of voice-overs for company videos, posing for brand photo shoots as well as giving his own paw print seal of approval to over 20 presents a day before they are delivered.
So proud of their latest recruitment coup, Catbox.ro reportedly collected Bossy for his first day at work in a silver limousine.
Accompanied in the limo by four impressed secretaries, Bossy looked sharp in his suit, peering confidently out of the window.
Company spokesperson Alexandra Cozac said: ‘He came dressed in a suit like a corporate manager and had an impressive attitude.
‘He checked the computer and seemed quite intimidating particularly because nobody really knew what message he was trying to convey. I guess it’s the first demo and he needs time to settle in.’
As well as his monthly salary, the gorgeous feline will also enjoy bonuses of cat food worth £37 and other unspecified perks.
This cat certainly did get the cream.
