A 75-year-old man visits a local animal shelter every day so he can enjoy “brushing cats” while often falling asleep on the job and napping with the felines.

Terry Lauerman decided one day to introduce himself to a local Green Bay-area animal sanctuary, telling the folks at Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary Inc. that he likes to brush cats.

According to Elizabeth Feldhausen, the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary, “He just walked in and started brushing,” noting that he never asked to be a volunteer. “So eventually we told him he was an official volunteer and had him fill out our volunteer form.”

The shelter, which opened in 2016, rescues cats with disabilities that would be at risk of euthanasia at other facilities.

Tommy the cat is a local stray in the neighborhood who found a family he could call his own.

“It’s more like he adopted us, to be honest,” sympson2612 shared on reddit. “He started hanging around our deck/yard this past Summer, and eventually we started feeding him. Next thing we know we got him his shots, got him neutered, and now he owns every piece of furniture and every person in this house. I think that was his evil plan all along…. We may have made a terrible mistake. ;)”

They decided to take Tommy in and right away the children fell in love, especially the family’s young son.

Whenever Tommy is getting ready to take a nap during the day, the tyke makes sure to tuck him in. This is his way of telling Tommy that he doesn’t have to worry anymore about being on the streets and that he has a loving home forever.
