Meet Sushi the cat from Austin Animal Center! 

Sushi loves to be the center of attention! His previous owner describes him as a friendly and cuddly lap cat that can also be a little chatty.  

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

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

Wand toys and balls are a great option for Sushi because they can keep him active, while giving some distance between him and his play mate.  

He’s a very smart boy that has learned how to open cabinet doors! This could be due to boredom and curiosity. Lots of attention and clicker training could be helpful!
