Terry Lauerman is a 75-year-old pensioner from Wisconsin, USA, who walks into a cat shelter every day to hang out with the furry residents. He asked the staff at Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay if he could brush their cats, and to his delight, they let him. So he started coming in every day to brush the kitties and now regularly ends up napping with them. The shelter has now shared pictures of Terry sleeping next to cats on various different days and people can’t get enough.
‘We are so lucky to have a human like Terry,’ said the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary on Facebook. ‘Terry just came along one day and introduced himself. He said he’d like to brush cats.
Eventually it became every day. ‘He brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes. He also accidentally falls asleep most days. We don’t mind – cats need this. Terry is a wonderful volunteer.’
