If your dream job consists of getting paid for hanging out with cats all day, this may be it.

A veterinary clinic in Dublin, Ireland, is hiring a professional 'cat cuddler' to help sick kitties get better.

Here's the job description: The ideal candidate should have gentle hands that can stroke cats for long hours and also take part in some 'cat whispering' to calm down feline patients.

Also essential is a keen ear that can tell the different types of purrs apart - cats may purr in times of contentment and distress.

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.

This position at the feline-only Just Cats Veterinary Clinic is offering a salary of between 20,000 euros (S$31,000) and 25,000 euros (S$39,000) a year, she added.
