Napping Cat Man Photos Go Viral

Endearing photos of Terry, a shelter volunteer in Green Bay, Wisconsin, have gone viral. In the photos, he’s shown napping with the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary’s cats, whom he comes to brush every day.

He doesn’t just brush them. He gets to know them, learning all their likes and dislikes. Wiped out from all that brushing, Terry falls asleep with the cats, who obviously adore him.

The photos were posted to the sanctuary’s Facebook page and quickly generated over 10,000 shares. When the shelter told him about his overnight fame, Terry said, “Now if all of those people would just donate $5 to help the kitties, that would make such a big difference!” He also suggested that we should all pray that he wins the lottery so that he can donate it to his cat friends.

“I would LOVE to be able to tell him that he helped raise money for the kitties next time he comes in,” the shelter said on Facebook. Terry’s fans can donate here. So far, Team Terry has raised over $500 for the shelter.

Terry’s getting an “Honorary Cat Grandpa” trophy from the shelter at their “Furry Tail Ball” on Wed., Nov. 17th. WTG, Terry! You can follow the shelter on Facebook.
