If you’re bored of your current employment and think it’s time to make a change, Just Cats Veterinary Clinic in Ireland is searching for the purr-fect candidate for this very unusual job posting: cat cuddler.
The cats-only clinic in Dublin is looking for someone with “gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time,” someone who is “capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients,” and who has “an ability to understand different types of purring.”
Here is the ad they posted on Facebook:
Does cattitude come naturally to you?
Have you counted kittens before you go asleep?
Do you feed the stray cats in your locality?
Does petting cats make you feel warm and fuzzy?
t is clear from the posting that the clinic has a sense of humor, too.
“We are an equal opportunities employer, however we do discriminate against dogs attending our veterinary clinic as patients.”
It sounds like a dream job for any cat lover. Sure, you might not be getting paid, but professional cat cuddlers have to start somewhere!
