Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram Heartwarming Tales of Toffee the Cat

Actor Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram recently opened up on their pet cat Toffee! They say, “Being owned by a cat is a new experience,” exclaims Hooda as we finally get talking on Love Your Pet Day today.

Shared Affection for Animals

Certainly, one undeniable bond they share is their mutual affection for animals. He shares that his initial pet, a Pomeranian named Tiger, coincidentally shared the same birth period as him. “For the first eight-nine years of my life, he was my best buddy. Then we had labradors. I used to pick up puppies from the street and hide them in my nani’s money plants. She would shoo them out and I would rescue them again,” he laughs. Lin meanwhile had cats and cows as her companion growing up. Her love for anything animal is reflected in the gifts Randeep picks for her. “Whenever he sees something related to animals at the places he visits, he gets it, especially elephants,” she shares.

Randeep further spoke about how she came into their lives. “She was being chased by a male cat aggressively, so a person in my office chased him away and brought him to the office. We were thinking what to do, they took her to the vet and fed her, got her inoculated. She stayed, but you can’t control her. You saw it in the shoot. Cats will take over the world. We are planning to build a house in the wild by the way,” he shares.

Lin further revealed how Bambi adopted her when she moved in with Randeep, she was waiting for his horses to recognize her. “Randeep would be out on shoots often, so it would be only me and Bambi in the house. She was like a watchdog, no one could enter the room when she was there, she would protect me. Now Toffee has adopted us,” she said.

andoned after the lockdowns got over. Hooda says, “That’s the biggest misconception people have while adopting pets. They feel love and affection initially... when it wears off, you have to be a caretaker and be responsible. Like Bambi started getting aggressive, we had to deal with it.” Lin chimes in, “You have to make a lot of adjustments and be a pet parent.”

As animal enthusiasts, what deeply saddens the pair is the plight that numerous pets endured during the Covid lockdowns. Reports have extensively documented the hardships faced by many pets during this period. Hooda adds, “That’s where the real test of you begins as a human being, when a small puppy grows up. Humans are selfish I guess, that’s why they abandoned their pets. It is very unfair and I hope people don’t do that.”
