A vacancy at a vets has generated international interest.

The clinic advertised for a cat cuddler to join its team and was astonished at how many people from around the world responded.

More than 3,000 people applied for the position and those from abroad said they were prepared to move to Dublin if chosen for the job. Among those who applied to Just Cats Veterinary Clinic and Cattery were people from Malaysia, the Netherlands, India, Italy, Australia, Russia, the US and China.

“It has been phenomenal, and we are still getting 40 applications per day from every corner of the world,” said Roisin Foran, from the clinic.

The candidates had to have the right ‘cattitude’ and needed to have gentle hands for petting and stroking cats for long periods of time. They also needed to be softly spoken and capable of cat whispering to calm the nerves of patients, Lonely Planet reports.
