You'll also need to have "gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time".

Regardless, the job position will undoubtedly be snapped up faster than you could say "kitty cats".

Dublin-based Just Cats Veterinary Clinic is seeking someone with "cattitude", the ability to understand different types of purring, and cat-whispering skills to soothe nervous feline patients.

As cats are known for hiding their discomfort, the job opening was created to help both cats and their owners become relaxed and comfortable during their visits to the clinic, veterinarian Aoife Caulfield told The Huffington Post. The ideal person for the position, they wrote, would have natural "cattitude", count kittens to go to sleep, and feed stray cats. "Does petting cats make you feel warm and fuzzy?" the job description teases.

Do you feed the stray cats in your locality?

Facebook's secret guidance on graphic content leaked
Images of non-sexual physical abuse and bullying of children are permitted so long as they are not sadistic or celebratory. Facebook told the Guardian that it's hard to reach a consensus for a service with almost 2 billion users.

The posting has been viewed more than 7,000 times on the advertisement site.

The clinic shared the job advertisement on Facebook where, unsurprisingly, it went down a storm with cat-lovers.

So if you're interested in getting paid to cuddle cats in Dublin, here's where to apply!
