This Job Will Literally Pay You to Cuddle With Cats

If you cuddle with kittens like it's your job, you'll be thrilled to know a company is now hiring a lucky cat lover to cuddle with felines throughout the day.

A veterinary clinic in Dublin is looking for a "cat cuddler" - and it pretty much means what it says.

In the job advert, the cat-only veterinary clinic makes clear that it is an equal opportunities employer, but that it does discriminate against dogs attending the clinic as patients.

Have you counted kittens before you go asleep? According to the job listing on their website, you must be a "crazy cat person", understand "cattitude" and feel "warm and fuzzy" when you pet cats. "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?" To be successful, applicants should have gentle hands capable of stroking cats for extended periods of time, and a qualification recognised by the Veterinary Council of Ireland. "I'd love to hug the cats!".

"They need to be softly spoken and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our inpatients".

You'll also need to possess the rare skill of understanding different types of purring.

If you're interested they want you to send over you CV to them.
