Stray cat search to find feline friend in Russia is over

A Russian town’s job search for a ‘cat chief’ is over.

Reuters reports the Russian town of Zelenogradsk, just North of Kaliningrad, had been looking for someone to look after its 70 stray cats.

While 80 candidates applied for the role, local resident Svetlana Logunova has landed the role, and has been given a bicycle and uniform, including a bright green jacket, black bow tie and hat, to help her fulfil her new duties.

She has a budget of 5,700 roubles (£66) a month to ensure all the seaside community’s cats are happy, dishing out food, strokes and free rides in the basket on her bike.

The town has also built a cat statue and added a feline to its emblem in a bid to rebrand itself as Russia’s foremost cat-loving community.
