If you love cats, then here's the purr-fect job for you.

Just Cats in Clonsilla, Dublin, is currently advertising for a full-time cat cuddler. 

The requirements are pretty straight-forward:

  • Are you a crazy cat person and loves cats?
  • Does cattitude come naturally to you?
  • Have you counted kittens before you go asleep?
  • Do you feed the stray cats in your locality?
  • Does petting cats make you feel warm and fuzzy?

"Based in Clonsilla, Dublin 15, we are Dublin's only veterinary clinic for just cats. We are looking for someone to work with our feline friendly staff in a 'no dogs' veterinary clinic.

"We are an equal opportunities employer, however, we do discriminate against dogs attending our veterinary clinic as patients.

"The ideal candidate must have gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time. They need to be softly spoken and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our inpatients. An ability to understand different types of purring is a distinct added advantage in helping you secure this position with us."

Sadly, there is one stipulation that will mean the majority of us will be unable to apply.

The website clearly states:

"A veterinary council of Ireland recognised qualification is essential for this role."
