The ad doesn’t list a salary or hours (or whether employees get to write off lint rollers as a work expense), but applicants are required to have a background in veterinary medicine or nursing. "We’re trying to appeal to a wider audience, perhaps a student nurse or someone who wants a change from the clinical side of things," Roisín Foran, head of Just Cats veterinary nursing, told The Irish Independent.

A job opening at a Dublin veterinary clinic is getting a ton of attention because, well, it basically sounds like a dream job for cat enthusiasts. The site explains that a cat cuddler ’s responsibility is to help calm felines that may be anxious about their time at the vet .

If you’re a cat person, the Just Cats Veterinary Clinic may have the ideal job for you. The veterinary practice, based in Dublin , is looking for someone to cuddle cats all day long. The clinic is a “no dogs” area, so dog-people need not apply.

Like many traditional employers, the clinic is seeking someone with good communication skills and mastery of a second language. The hire will “need to be softly spoke and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of some of our inpatients,” according to the ad, and the ability to understand “different types of purring” is also a plus. Additional desired qualities are natural “cattitude,” a history of helping needy strays, and “gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time.”

Qualified ailurophiles can email their cover letter and resume to miaow@justcats.ie—but be sure to submit your materials soon, as Just Cats told The Independent that their phone has been ringing “non-stop” after posting the ad.
