Cat lovers, listen closely! It’s the siren call of Florida.

The state is looking for an enthusiastic group of kitten cuddlers. Miami-Dade County Animal Services put the call out for help after receiving a spring influx of baby cats. 

According to WESH, the city’s shelters are in need of volunteers to help them provide round-the-clock feedings and affection to the increasing number of kittens under their care. By offering to provide their snuggly services, volunteers are helping the newborns become healthy, socialized and ready for adoption.

“Abandoned newborn kittens are an unfortunate right of spring and we need the help of the community,” MDAS director Alex Muñoz told WESH. “Engaging and empowering the community to play an active role is a key component of our lifesaving efforts.”

Those interested in some professional kitty cuddling just need to apply with an email to and attend an hour-long training session in the beginning of April.
