You no longer need to spend your time at work discreetly browsing cat pictures whilst pretending to work! A cat rehoming centre in Newcastle has asked for volunteer kitten cuddlers.
Thinking this must be the dream? There is one slight drawback…
Many of the cats in the Westgate Ark centre are feral or semi-feral.
If you can survive cuddling the ferocious, gnarling balls of fluff and claws then this could be workplace utopia. The aim is to help the animals get used to human beings – known as ‘socialisation’.
Paul Black, 55, of the Westgate Ark Centre, said, ‘We rescue a lot of pregnant cats and semi-feral kittens and they all need handling so that they’re nice and used to people, which makes them much more suitable for homes.’
We must all have a friend or ten who would love this job, share this and make a dream come true.
