People are obsessed with this guy who volunteers and naps with cats at his local shelter


Earlier this week, the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin, shared these cute photos of one of their volunteers.

The post has since gone viral. Elizabeth Feldhausen, the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary, told BuzzFeed News that all the attention has been really surprising.

Feldhausen said that Terry started coming by the shelter about six months ago. Over the last few months, he's started coming every day.

“Yesterday, when I told him he hit 400,000 views he said he hoped all those people would donate,” Feldhausen said.

“I kept telling him, ‘Terry, you're famous,’ and he would just do his modest laugh and go back to petting cats,” she said.

They rescue cats that have disabilities from places where they'd be at risk for euthanasia. 

“We are a cage-free sanctuary that was designed to be a therapeutic environment, especially for our cats that are recovering from trauma.”

The comments on the photos are amazing. And a lot of people want him to get on Instagram! (Same!)

“I tried to show him the post, but again, he doesn't know how Facebook works,” Feldhausen said. “Today, he's reached over 3,000,000 views, he's on the front page of Reddit, and he's all over other sites! I'm going to do my best to explain this to him.”

“I don't know if he realized how big of a deal it was,” she said. “He said he hoped all those people would donate.”
