Cat-napping Grandpa

September 27, 2018

Photographs of a Wisconsin Grandpa cat-napping with his feline friends have gone viral.

Terry Laurmen, 75, has become a regular volunteer at the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay over the last year.

It specialises in looking after, rehabilitating and rehoming cats with disabilities and special care needs who would be at risk of being put down elsewhere.

Terry began turning up almost every day with his own special brush to groom the cats.

As a cat-lover who travels for large chunks of the year, he is unable to get one of his own, but has always loved volunteering with them.

But grooming 20-30 cats can get exhausting, and the other volunteers began snapping shots of Terry taking his daily siestas with his furry friends.

Those images, of Terry and the cats curled up on the sofas together, were posted on Facebook a few days ago and have now been shared across the world more than 22,000 times.

The shelter has taken to dubbing the loyal volunteer “Cat Grandpa” – a name he approves of – but neither can quite get over his new-found online fame.
