There are many pictures of kitties and elder people on social media, but not all of them have the impact that a certain series of photos had; that being from the Wisconsin Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay where 75 year old Terry Laurmen has been volunteering his time to spend with his favourite animal – cats.
But it turns out the kitten cuddles and comfy couches might be a bit too much for Laurmen some days as he has been found having a nap with one of the cats on more than one occasion. One day a post was made to social media and suddenly the shelter saw a big increase in donations – $30,000 in a few days! It turns out a sweet old man cuddled up with a cat is a perfect way to gain attention on the internet and it has worked well for this shelter.
