If you’re a cat lover and willing to make a career out of petting cats, an Irish veterinary clinic might have just the right job for you.

Just Cats clinic in Dublin is hiring a full-time professional “cat cuddler” who has “gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time.”



“Are you a crazy cat person and love cats? Does cattitude come naturally to you? Do you feed the stray cats in your locality?” Dublin's sole cats-only vet clinic wrote in the job advert posted online. “If you answer yes to some or all of these questions, how about working with cats as a full time job at Just Cats Veterinary Clinic?”

Meet Simba, king of the house!

According to the ad, the ideal candidate needs to be soft-spoken and “capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients.”

It adds that the ability to understand different types of purring would be an added advantage that might help applicants secure the job. However, qualifications recognised by the Veterinary Council of Ireland would be a must to apply.

The posting has been viewed more than 7,000 times on the advertisement site.
