Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A veterinary clinic in Ireland posted a job opening on its website seeking a "crazy cat person" to join the staff as a professional "cat cuddler."
The Just Cats Veterinary Clinic in Clonsilla, a Dublin suburb, said on its website that it is seeking a feline-friendly applicant to serve as the office's new "cat cuddler."
The ad reads:
"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? If you answer yes to some or all of these questions, how about working with cats as a full time job at Just Cats Veterinary Clinic?"
The posting says the clinic's ideal candidate "must have gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time."
The clinic says communication abilities are also key.
"They need to be softly spoke and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our in patients," the posting says. "An ability to understand different types of purring is a distinct added advantage in helping you secure this position with us."
