This is only for cat lovers, people who are wanting to quit their jobs and are bored of their monotonous life of sitting idly on the desk, staring in front of the computer and roaming aimlessly.
A place in Ireland is hiring a professional cat cuddler – sounds too good to be true?
Basically, the outline of the job is to stroke the cats for a long period of time. If you love to play with their tiny little paws, tails and fluffy ears then the ‘Just Cats Veterinary Clinic and Cattery’ in Dublin, Ireland is the place for you.
So many of us love the company of cats – but doing that and getting paid for it is a dream come true.
The terms and conditions for the only cat specific veterinary clinic in Dublin are something like this:
This is what the job ad says:
‘Are you a crazy cat person and love cats?
Does cattitude come naturally to you?
Have you counted kittens before you go to sleep?
Do you feed the stray cats in your locality?
Does petting cats make you feel warm and fuzzy?
If the answer is yes for everything then you have qualified for this job and yes the clinic asks the cat cuddlers should be comfortable petting the cats for a long time, know how to speak softly, sweetly and calm them. In short, you should have the patience, love and time to understand the cats.’
The most important thing is that this place is only for cats, the office warns, “We do discriminate against dogs attending our veterinary clinic as patients.”
The just cats’ website describes the criteria as, “Gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time.”
The Just Cats veterinary clinic at the moment employs a staff of up to 4 people, but it’s expanding their team with this new position for a ‘cat cuddler’. So what are you waiting for?
