The dream job you never knew you wanted (Kittens included)

AN animal shelter on Tyneside has put out a job advert asking for volunteers to come in and cuddle kittens, after an influx in recent months.

The Westgate Ark shelter says they need people to come in and socialise and play with the kittens in order to help them to be re-homed.

Paul Black, Westgate Ark said: 

Many of the feral cats either come in with kittens or are pregnant.

To re-home them we have to socialise them and this is easier if they are kittens.

According to the Evening Chronicle, people are being urged to pop along to the centre to spend an hour or two playing with, stroking and cuddling the tiny kittens.

The centre will also be holding an open weekend over the Christmas period where volunteers will be given a free mince pie and a glass of sherry or mulled wine.
