You can getting paid to cuddle cats? And who said miracles don’t exist! In Dublin, Ireland, there is an opportunity to become a professional cat-cuddler. Yes, you read that correctly—a professional cat-cuddler. Well, you know… until there is a more official title for this position. I know this job may sound too purrrfect to be true. But before you make that move to Ireland, here’s what you need to know.
Justcats is Dublin’s first and only dedicated feline veterinary clinic, meaning there is a “no dogs allowed” atmosphere. The clinic is looking for a candidate to hold cats and embrace them during their visits to make it more comfortable for both the owner and their beloved feline.
According to the clinic, the ideal candidate must have gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time, be soft-spoken, and be capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of their patients. Since cat purring can tell you a lot about the cat’s feelings, having the ability to understand the different types of purring makes you stand out from the rest of the applicants.
The clinic is “considering a veterinary intern, a nurse position or a nurse’s assistant and their title will be appropriate to their role,” Veterinarian Aoife Caulfield told HuffPost. Cuddling the four-legged family member pays between 20,000 euros and 25,000 euros (about $22,000 to $28,000).
Not bad considering you are getting paid to snuggle with your BFF!
