The internet is falling in love with this man who naps with cats while volunteering at a shelter


WASHINGTON (Circa) — Meet Terry. He's a 75-year-old volunteer at Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Terry is a big fan of cats and loves to take naps alongside them. The shelter decided to recognize Terry in a Facebook post.

"We are so lucky to have a human like Terry. Terry just came along one day and introduced himself. He said he'd like to brush cats. Eventually it became everyday," they said. "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."

The post has been shared more than 13,000 times and liked more than 20,000 times.

When the shelter broke the news to Terry that he was "social media famous," WGN reports Terry's response was the following:

“Now if all of those people would just donate $5 to help the kitties, that would make such a big difference!”
