A veterinary clinic in Consilla, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland, has placed an ad for a unique employment opportunity that any cat-lover would gladly pounce on if they were given the chance.
The clinic called Just Cats is seeking a professional “cat cuddler” to help care and show affection to the felines in their care. Aside from being required to be a huge fan and lover of cats, the position itself on the Just Cats website describes requirements as, “gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time”
However, the Veterinary Council of Ireland has stated that the position must require real qualifications. That hasn’t stopped the job from receiving applications from people around the entire globe. The position has also outlined that candidates should be “…softly spoken and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients.”
Do you have the right ‘cattitude’ to apply to this position? The veterinary clinic for cats stated that they are “an equal opportunities employer; however, we do discriminate against dogs attending our veterinary clinic as patients.” This opportunity would place the new applicant in the position of caring for the animals by cuddling them and showing affection. We wonder what the job application process must look like!
The Just Cats veterinary clinic employs a staff of up to 4 people at the moment, but is expanding their team with this new position for a “cat cuddler.”
Pictures on the clinic’s website, depict a friendly group of feline experts who no only have a great deal of knowledge about cats, they also exhibit a great deal of love for them too.
The website also features a handy blog for cat lovers filled with tricks on how to care for their pets, as well as ideas for Halloween and Pet names! It’s clear that they take this new job position for a “cat cuddler” very seriously! Does it sound like the right job for you?
