A Romanian tech company hires a cat as manager.

A Romanian internet startup has hired a cat as communications manager. This “meaowing” manager was selected after a rigorous recruiting process that took a few months. Over 700 friggin’ candidates submitted their CVs for the job.

The company that made this unusual decision is called Catbox.ro and specializes in selling original and personalized gifts.

The first cat-manager in Romania is a nine-month-old Scottish Fold named Boss. It will be the image of the new Catbox product range and will have to stamp all the gift boxes the company sells. Boss will also feature in the company’s promotional films.

For its effort, the cat will get a salary of EUR 200 per month, a quarter of which will be paid in cat food. The cash will go to its owner.
