KUALA LUMPUR, April 6 ― It was just another night of prayers for Imam Sheikh Walid Mehsas and congregation until a cat decided join in.
Captured by a live broadcast, the heart-warming feline visit took place in Bordj Bou Arreridj, a province of Algeria.
Unperturbed, the imam calmly carried on leading the tarawih prayers, a nightly prayer occurring every evening during the month of Ramadan, while giving the cat a reassuring squeeze.

From the way the calico jumped on him and comfortably climbed her way up to his shoulder, it looked as though it’s not the first time it’s happened.
The 38-second clip has gone viral on social media and picked up by several news agencies.
