Grandpa Volunteers And Naps With Cats At A Shelter Every Day





The more we hustle in real life, the more we appreciate the little joys of life on the Internet. Just like this 75-year-old man quickly went viral when photos of him napping with cats at a shelter captured a lot of hearts.

When a U.S. pet sanctuary posted photos of an old man napping with a cat on their Facebook page, it had no idea how the post would make Internet warm and fuzzy. The sanctuary’s founder Elizabeth Feldhausen shared a series of snaps of Terry cat napping with the rescues, and he quickly became an online sensation.

Terry visits the shelter on a daily basis to brush the cats. However, instead of watching the cats nap, he ends up napping with them.

Elizabeth wrote on Facebook:

“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 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.”

Elizabeth told Terry that a lot of people viewed his photos and liked them, but he said that he’s not interested and fame and would ant people to donate to the shelter instead. His wish became a reality when people started sending their donations to the nonprofit organization and the founder of the shelter couldn’t be happier.

Elizabeth said:

“Our donations have increased! Normally, we’d make between $3,000-$4,000 per month. This week, we have reached $30,000! This is amazing because we do rely solely on donation!”

Elizabeth shared that the proceeds will go to more quarantine rooms, bills, and much-needed equipment for the winter. She said they have enough funds for the rainy days.
