Cat Nap! Volunteer Captured Snoozing Alongside Rescue Kitties at Wisconsin Pet Sanctuary

'We are so lucky to have a human like Terry.

The Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary is enjoying a moment in the spotlight thanks to its favorite volunteer - Terry. He brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes.

His visits to the shelter became a daily thing after the nonprofit relocated to Green Bay's Broadway District in 2017 and Lauerman retired from his career as a Spanish instructor.

According to the shelter, photos of Mr Lauerman and the cats have inspired poetry and prompted calls from people asking him to run for president.

The website for Safe Haven says that it is a "no-kill, cage-free cat sanctuary" that cares specifically for "cases of abuse, negect [sic], FIV+, blindness, missing limbs, and other physical and psychological disabilities". "Terry just came along one day and introduced himself". He had a cat brush and a love for cuddling cats.

"I've always liked cats, and I didn't have cats as an adult". We don't mind - Cats need this!

As for Lauerman, he is "so happy that accidentally taking a nap has raised so much money", she said.

75-year-old Terry Lauerman is spending his retirement well by volunteering and napping - at the same time.

Tennis umpire Mohamed Lahyani banned for Nick Kyrgios pep-talk
However, Lahyani is one of seven full-time umpires on the Tour and so the incident was still subject to ATP disciplinary action. Initially, the chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani was not suspended after his pep talk with Nick Kyrgios at the US Open.

A few days ago, the shelter posted a gallery of his best nap pictures and the internet loved it.

The pictures have been posted by Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary Inc. On Wednesday, the staff snapped several photos of the affectionately nicknamed "Cat Grandpa" napping and shared them on Facebook. She said she tried to show him how popular the post became on Facebook, but he doesn't get how it works. "(I'm still shocked too) He said, 'Now if all of those people would just donate $5 to help the kitties, that would make such a big difference!"

Set up like a cat cafe - with sprawling arm chairs and the bird channel on loop on television - the shelter was set up by 27-year-old Elizabeth Feldhausen in 2016.

"One day, we were like 'Terry, you're an official volunteer, '" Feldhausen said.

Shelter founder Elizabeth Feldhausen tells MNN that Lauerman can't believe what has happened.

Twitter users are reposting Terry's story to boost donations to the shelter, and the post even made it to the front page of Reddit.

"Terry is very grateful, and very surprised that this all came out from accidentally falling asleep!"
