If this isn't what my retirement looks like, I don't want to retire.

75-year-old Wisconsin man, Terry Lauerman, walked into Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay one day. He had a brush in hand and told the people working that he wanted to hang out with the cats and brush them. Then he kept coming back and would brush the cats every day.

Safe Haven’s founder, Elizabeth Feldhausen, was there the first day Terry walked in and she told WCCO that "eventually we told him he was an official volunteer and had him fill out our volunteer form.”

His main volunteer task that ends up accidentally occurring almost every time he volunteers? He takes a cat-nap with the cats.

"Cats need this! Terry is a wonderful volunteer,” Safe Haven said in a Facebook post about Terry.

Check out their Facebook post and some pictures of Terry napping with the cats:

If you want to make an impact on animals lives, volunteer at your local animal shelter! There are plenty nearby and I'm sure they wouldn't mind you taking naps with their cats.
