If anyone’s looking for a little inspiration for their post-retirement career, you could do a lot worse than taking a cue from Wisconsin’s Terry Lauerman.
The 75-year-old man is a volunteer at the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay. His primary job, as it seems, is to take naps with the various cats.
Save Haven’s founder, Elizabeth Feldhausen, says that Lauerman “just walked in” one day, with a cat brush and an intention.
He’s been there for about six months, so Feldhausen said “eventually we told him he was an official volunteer and had him fill out our volunteer form.”
His typical day on the job involves him spending an hour snoozing on the couch with one cat. And then he’ll wake up and move onto a doze with the next cat.
