A Retiree Has Turned Snoozing into a Charitable Act

A Wisconsin retiree has turned snoozing into the ultimate charitable act. Terry Lauerman, 75, goes to his local animal shelter in Green Bay every day and takes naps with its cats. Though, that was not quite his intention. According to the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary, Terry strolled into the shelter about six months ago with a simple dream and a cat brush. He just walked in and started brushing cats noting that he never asked to be a volunteer. So they eventually made him an official volunteer. He visits the cage-free sanctuary — which rescues disabled cats that would be at risk of euthanasia at other facilities — daily and stays for about three hours. After he grooms a cat for a bit, he dozes off and the cats doze with him. After an hour snooze he’ll wake up and switch cats. Terry brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes and tempers. And although Terry hopes his few minutes of fame leads to more donations to Safe Haven, he also wants to remind people that he’s not the only person dedicating his time to shelter……Ed
