Meet Terry Lauerman, a 75-year-old retired teacher who volunteers at his local animal shelter in Green Bay, Wisconsin, every single day. Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary rescues cats that have disabilities from places where they'd be at risk for euthanasia. Its founder, Elizabeth Feldhausen, posted several photos on Facebook of Lauerman napping with the kittens on various days. The images quickly went viral, which shocked Feldhausen. Meanwhile, Lauerman doesn't seem to understand his newfound fame. "I tried to show him the post, but again, he doesn't know how Facebook works," Feldhausen tells BuzzFeed. "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." She adds, "I don't know if he realized how big of a deal it was. He said he hoped all those people would donate."
