The purrrrrfect employee! Cat is given job at Russian museum after April Fool's prank claiming the moggy had applied for a job was taken seriously (and he's paid in caviar)

  • Marai the cat is official doorman at Serpukhov Museum of History and Art

  • He was hired after staff pretended to share his job application online

  • He is paid in meatballs and caviar and is a huge hit with visitors

    A cat has become the latest employee at a Russian museum after an April Fool's prank backfired.

    The ginger feline first started to hang around the Serpukhov Museum of History and Art in Serpukhov two years ago and became such a regular face that staff took him under their wing and nicknamed him Marai, in honour of the building's ex-owner Anna Maraeva.

    Then earlier this month, workers played a prank on their Instagram page, claiming that Marai had been put on the payroll after applying for a job in the company.



    They posted a picture of the cat's supposed covering letter online that had been signed with a paw print.

    It read: 'As I am a direct relative of [Anna] Maraeva, I ask you to give me a job in ​your museum. Marai The Cat.'

    Too bad we didn't have a cat around the White House in 2006. But then, we did get a P*ssy...
