Moving into the special elderly nursing home with pets.
(Asahi digital January 7)
A special elderly nursing home “Sakura Village Yamashina” in Yokosuka, Kanagawa, accepts dogs and cats from the animal welfare center before they are killed.
This effort was started to save the animals, but it has also warmed the hearts of the residents.
Sakura Village Yamashina, located in western Yokosuka city, among the mountains.
On the second floor, 40 people living with 6 dogs and 8 cats.
12 of these came from an animal welfare center, or were animals left after the owner died.
It was started when they opened in April, 2012.
The tenants can also bring their pets.
Michihiko Wakayama, (49), director of Sakura Village Yamashina, said that they give priority to the pets for which a foster parent is difficult to find due to advanced age and disease.
Sakura Village Yamashina pays for the food, and 15 volunteers help with going for walks.
A dog called “Mucchan” was rescued near Fukushima 1 nuclear power plant after the disaster. Mucchan had a heart disease, but has recovered thanks to nursing by staff. Mucchan lived in Sakura Village Yamashina until dying last May.
☆Unique offer of a company which works among cats.
A company pays a “cat allowance" of 5,000 yen a month to an employee bringing up an underprivileged cat.
This is an unique offer from a company which works with cats.
There are 9 cats in this company.
It may be a good vocation for a Web designer who likes cats?
Internet-related business company “Ferray” is doing website production for smartphones under the observation of 9 cats.
Their help-wanted advertisement is very unique.
There is a cat allowance.
Ferray, which has 9 cats now, is hiring smartphone Web designers.
Cats pull the LAN cable, input odd things with keyboard, hang up the phone, play in the client’s bag…etc. It sounds like cats affect duties in this IT company.
But Ferray strongly asserts that it’s still possible to get work done even surrounded by cats!
Minimum skill and experience are necessary, but whether or not one is a “cat lover” is also a consideration.
Ferray pay "a cat allowance" of 5,000 yen a month to an employee bringing up an underprivileged cat.
It is also possible to come to the office with a cat.
They have twitter account which describes the cats in Ferray.
If people want to work while being watched by cats (or watching cats?), this is a very interesting option.
