Charity Looking For Cat Cuddlers In Best Job Ever

Charity Looking For Cat Cuddlers In Best Job Ever

In what may just be the best gig out there, a charity is asking for volunteers to step up and be their new cat cuddlers.

The Cats Protection charity based out of Devon, UK is asking for animal lovers to interact with and observe the cats using provided toys and treats. 

The aim of the program will be to help integrate cats into social settings and make sure they're super chilled with human interaction.

In a Facebook post on the Cats Protection - Teignbridge and Torbay Branch page, the charity said: “We need volunteer cat cuddlers to help socialise our cats at Foredowne cattery, Kingskerswell, where we rent space.


“Volunteers do not have to feed the cats or clean litter trays; they just observe & interact with the cats. Toys & treats are provided."

Sounds like a day well spent if you ask us. 


Unsurprisingly, since advertising the role online the charity has been inundated with applicants.

They are also looking to foster out some of their cats to further provide a safe haven for the animals until a permanent home can be found.

Branch Development Manager, Nicola Parry said: “Cat fosterers play a vital role in our charity by caring for cats in their own home until a new owner can be found.

"No special equipment is needed but cat fosterers do need to have either a spare room or an area in their garden where a cat pen can be housed and, of course, a love of cats is a must.

"The charity will provide plenty of assistance and support materials for all fosterers.

"Offering a temporary home to a cat in need can be an incredibly rewarding experience, and becoming a volunteer for Cats Protection is a great way to meet new friends – both human and feline!"

Care and cuddle some cats for charity? Surely there's nothing that could fill the heart more.
