That’s what Terry Laurmen’s life looks like on most days. The 75-year-old cat lover has been volunteering at his local cat shelter, snoozing off in corners while cuddling kitties. Thanks to some viral photos on social media of his siestas, he’s been able to raise big bucks for the cats.
In just the last two days, the shelter has raised more than $30,000.
“People have been donating $1, $2 or $5 dollars,” said Elizabeth Feldhausen, founder of the Wisconsin Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay. The facility rehabilitates pets with special needs or physical problems.
“[I]t’s been so many people that they’ve made such a huge impact by doing something so small.”
