Which jobs can you find to work with cats ?

Are you a real cat lover? And you would like to make your passion for our feline friends your job ? Here's a great idea ! All the more so as the opportunities available to you are numerous, according to your tastes, talents and abilities. For so long the profession of veterinarian was one of the only ones that can be exercised in connection with animals, it is no longer the case. The Internet, new lifestyles and the evolution of relationships with our pets have created new needs and new jobs. We'll let you discover them.

You are close with the service industry

Do you like being useful to others, helping others ? Your sensitivity can also be put to the service of our feline companions. If you like to study (especially in scientific subjects), you will be able to orientate yourself towards the different professions of animal health: by becoming veterinary or auxiliary veterinary, for example. But you can also opt for new professions, still quite unknown, such as animal osteopath or behaviourist.


If you see yourself taking care of cats (and only them) you can also consider working in a boarding house or cat retreat. This is for true enthusiasts, because the job may be difficult (physically and psychologically) but it is rewarded with the feeling of being really useful. More relaxing, the cat-sitter job (which consists of keeping cats in the absence of their masters, in your home or their own) can also be considered, especially if you live in a large city or nearby.
