Job Of The Day: Cat Circus Attendant
You might already have seen this, since cat news tends to travel around the internet fairly quickly, but in case you haven’t, please read the Acro-Cats’ job posting:
Has your dream always been to run away with a cat circus? Then here’s the job for you! Samantha Martin and the Acro-Cats are looking for a tour assistant to travel cross-country with a troupe of trained cats (plus a groundhog, a chicken and a few rats) as they purr-form at venues in cities across the United States.
Job duties include lifting and carrying up to 50 lbs of props, including cat carriers, as well as performing the following roles during the show:
—Front of house
—Sound and light operator
—Volunteer coordinator (I am assuming this means “work with the people who volunteer to come on stage and be part of the cat circus experience”)
I temporarily reeled at the idea that you could do sound and lights and assist onstage at the same time, but I bet the Acro-Cats have it all worked out.
If you think this gig might be purr-fect for you (SORRY, HAD TO DO IT), please note that the pay “varies by show” but does include purr diem. (I CAN’T STOP MYSELF FROM TYPING THESE CAT PUNS.)
