A feline veterinary clinic in Dublin is currently hiring for the position of Cat Cuddler - yes, that is the actual job title.
The very appropriately named Just Cats clinic in Clonsilla, Dublin recently shared the announcement that they are seeking a new full-time team member to take on the gargantuan and trying task of cuddling and comforting their adorable kitty clients.
The job posting asks these questions, which I personally relate to very strongly:
- 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?
This is the second time Just Cats has hired for the coveted Cat Cuddler role, previously vetting candidates last May:

Just Cats describes themselves as "Dublin's only veterinary clinic for just cats" and notes that they are "an equal opportunities employer; however, we do discriminate against dogs attending our veterinary clinic as patients."
The ideal candidate for the job must have: "gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time.
"They need to be softly spoke[n] and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients.
"An ability to understand different types of purring is a distinct added advantage in helping you secure this position with us."
Actually, bye, I'm off to Dublin!
