100,000 Yuan to Cat-sit?
Adjust font size:

Does it sound unbelievable to be given 100,000 yuan to make a cat happy for a day?

"I moved to Beijing for my career with a cat called Xiao Bao. Because of the new enviroment, Xiao Bao has become very down recently. I am looking forward a girl to make Xiao Bao happy and would like to pay 100,000 yuan." This ad has spread widely in online communities. There are now about 200 females who have registered their names to fill the "position."

Participates have to register their basic information and hobbies on a website. The final result will be based on Internet users' votes. The winner will have chance to show off his or her talents to the cat.

Heated discussion emerged regarding the post. Some doubt the real aims behind it, some says it shows people's kindness to animals. But most consider this move showing off about money.

"It hurts people's respect looking for a cat-sitter. A beauty contest is taking place to make a cat happy. Too meaningless," Xixi said.

The website claims the post is entrusted by a boss working at a trade company, with official entrusted papers signed and 100,000 yuan notarized, but refuses to reveal any details about the boss to protect individual privacy.
