One man who was against the idea of having a cat in his house seems to have warmed up to the idea. In a series of TikTok videos, posted by Shaan Renoo (@the_cat_games), Kamaljeet Singh Renoo aka Raj, keeps telling his son that he couldn't get a cat. "You’re not having a cat in this house," the 60-year-old sternly told his son. Then the clip cuts to "several months later" as Raj playfully argues with a fluffy white, black-tipped British shorthair cat who seemingly has taken over his spot on the couch. "That’s my chair. I want to sit down there. I want to watch TV," he tells the cat named Angie before politely asking her if he could sit next to her.
Even after taking his seat, Raj cannot seem to concentrate on watching television as he constantly directs his attention to their cat who is more than happy to receive his affection. He showers her with endless compliments and plays with her paws saying, "That's a paw there, 2nd paw there, 3rd paw there, 4th paw there."

Next, he goes on to express his love for the ball of fur. "Never bite me, do you? Because you love me. I’ll always love you. I’ll put a Whitney Houston song for you every day," he is heard promising. The same thing happened when Shann brought another cat into the house later. After protesting a lot, he quickly became friends with the new member.
"My dad is normally a quiet, moody dad figure around the house. Until it gets to the evening, after he's had his first drink, then he lightens up a bit and becomes the joker. So he's got two sides to him," Renoo told Newsweek.

Raj has long disliked cats and did his best to avoid houses where they lived, per reports. However, Angie managed to change his perception of felines. "He says he hated cats from day one. We have Indian heritage but he grew up in Kenya, he actually grew up in a jungle. He liked wildcats but not housecats, and would avoid going into people's houses that had cats to not get scratched," noted Renoo.

"After months of pestering my mum for a cat, she gave in. We didn't tell my dad we were getting a cat until it arrived. On the day we got the cat, he walked into the room, and I swear on my mum's life, he was so starstruck. I could see he wanted to smile but he didn't break a smile. After about a week of having the cat, I came home from work drinks and he was playing with her and talking to her like a baby. I tried to call her to come to me but she stayed with him," he added.
It was after Shaan moved to another city that his father had to take over the role of Angie's caregiver and from there the sweet journey began. "My parents really didn't want a cat in the house, but they fell in love with her," he said.
