Time to quit your job because applications to become a cat cuddler are now open

Could there be a more adorable job?

By Prudence Wade

Making every other job in the universe now seem utterly unbearable, there is now an opening to be a cat cuddler.

That’s right folks, an actual job out there specifies that you should be a crazy cat lady. Dreams really do come true.

OK, down to the nitty gritty: the cat cuddling position is based at the Just Cats veterinary clinic and cattery in Dublin, but what does the glorious sounding job entail?

Well, you’ll need to be softly spoken and “capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients”, as well as having gentle hands to pet and stroke cats for long periods of time. Oh, and “an ability to understand different types of purring is a distinct added advantage in helping you secure this position with us.”

Think this job might be for you? If you’re weighing up whether to apply or not, ask yourself some of these questions: “does cattitude come naturally to you?”, “does patting cats make you feel warm and fuzzy?”, and “have you counted kittens before you go asleep?”

However, there is one crucial requirement of the job. As well as gentle hands, you’ll also need to have a veterinary council of Ireland recognised qualification. That one is a bit more difficult than just being softly spoken and loving cats.
