Wanted: Professional 'Cat Cuddler.' No, This Is Not A Joke.

The cat cuddler would help calm felines that may be anxious about their visit to the vet.

Tired of your daily 9-to-5 desk job? Looking for career change? Here's the 'purr'fect opportunity to try something new. Except, you will have to move to Dublin, Ireland. And, of course, you must love cats.
