Bluebonnet Animal Hospital & Riverside Vet ‘Pet of the Week’: Meet Austin Animal Center’s Sushi

To encounter Sushi the Austin Animal Center cat!

Sushi loves being the center of attention! His former owner describes him as a friendly and cuddly cat who can also be a bit talkative.

He tends to follow his person and likes to hang out in the same room. Sushi likes to be brushed and likes to be held.

This one-year-old can get a little rough during playtime and overstimulated, so we recommend watching out for these signs and ending your play session when you see this happening.

Chopsticks and balls are a great option for Sushi as they can keep him active, while still allowing some distance between him and his playmate.

He is a very intelligent boy who has learned to open cupboard doors! This may be due to boredom and curiosity. Lots of attention and clicker training could be helpful!
