File this one under “job openings you may have never expected to see.” The Amazing Acro-Cats, a “cat circus” that travels around the country performing to sold-out audiences, is looking for a tour assistant. In case you’re wondering what it is a cat circus does, they travel around with the purpose of entertaining as well as educating the audience about cat training. According to their website, “the Amazing Acro-Cats, and their human staff, are devoted to promoting cat-training awareness and supporting feline adoption and rescue across the country.”

They go on to say that “a component of this mission is forming partnerships that involve fostering and finding homes for cats and kittens as our troupe of former orphans and strays travel from city to city in a custom cat bus.”

Their website says that they are one of four cat shows in the United States.

While it’s definitely not a job title or role that you see every day, you would probably have the most interesting business cards, plus you’d get a lot of travel in. And if you love cats, you really can’t go wrong here.

BuzzFeed gave some coverage to the Amazing Acro-Cats a few years back. Here’s a video they created that will give you an idea of what they do:
