Man who refused to have a cat becomes doting granddad to two adorable felines [Video]
Most of the time, dads are the ones who say they don’t want pets, only to have completely smitten by a fur baby.
Take the case of Kamaljeet”Raj” Singh Renoo. In a TikTok video posted by his son, Shaan Renoo, the 60-year-old dad flatly said NO when asked if he wanted a cat.
“You’re not having a cat in this house,” Raj replied every time the question came up.

Shaan, who lives with his parents in London, England has been pestering his parents about getting a cat for years. But his dad wouldn’t give in.
Shaan says his dad hated cats.
“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.”
Shaan and his mother secretly adopted a white British shorthaired cat named Angie. Raj was smitten and immediately fell in love with Angie.

“After months of pestering my mum for a cat, she gave in,” said Shaan. “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.”
About a week later, Shaan came home to find his father playing with Angie and talking to her in baby-talk! Not only that, but the feeling was mutual. He says Angie has really brought out his father’s tender side.
“My dad is normally a quiet, moody dad figure around the house,” he said, adding that eventually “he lightens up a bit and becomes the joker. So he’s got two sides to him.”
These days, Shaan’s popular TikTok page is full of videos proving that Angie has Raj wrapped around her little paw. In one video, he tells his “pussycato” that he’ll even play “I’ll Always Love You” by Whitney Houston for her every day.
After the success of adding Angie to their household, Shaan started pushing for a second cat. Raj hated the idea.
Once again, Shaan went ahead and got another cat, Tommy. “Send it back,” Raj says grumpily.
But Raj fell in love with Tommy, too! He’s now a doting granddad of two adorable cats.
