This unique veterinary clinic called Just Cats has a description for themselves as the only veterinary clinic for cats in Dublin. They also add that even though they are equal opportunities employers, they make discriminations against dogs that are brought to their veterinary clinic as patients.
However, the job that they’re offering is not just fun and games. The clinic made an additional list of credentials which are key for being successful at their job.
They need the employee to have gentle hands that can pet and stroke cats for large periods. Additionally, the person needs to be soft-spoken and be able to calm the cat’s nerves as well as comprehend and detect different varieties of purring.
The idea of employing a person to cuddle with the cat patients isn’t that weird and idiotic. Experts have shown studies that proved that if they have the choice, the cat will choose human companionship instead of food.
Even though cats are known for their not caring attitude, studies have shown that cats care. If cats are given the choice between hanging out with a human and food, toys, or amazing scents, they will choose the human’s company.
The Behavioral Processes journal published the study in which experts tested what would happen if sheltered and domestic cats are given different varieties of stimuli. The cats were given the choice between toys, food, scent, and interactions with humans.
The majority of the cases, the felines chose the interactions over the other types of stimuli which proves that they love us even if they don’t show it sometimes.
The job may sound like a lie, however, the increase of animal rights awareness throughout the world opens more jobs like this. These jobs become more and more popular with the animal world. So pack your travel bag and move to Ireland since I’m sure many more people will try to snatch it before you! The Just Cats job posting can be found on the following link:
