A veterinary surgery is currently advertising for a 'cat cuddler'. The role is basically exactly what it sounds like, a full time job cuddling cats.
The vets said that ‘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 in-patients.
‘An ability to understand different types of purring is a distinct added advantage in helping you secure this position with us.’
For cat lovers, this may sound like the perfect job - but there is a catch. You'll have to move to Dublin if you're successful in your application.
