I was scrolling on Facebook yesterday and saw the most precious sight in the form of a uniquely beautiful tuxedo kitten named Sushi. You see, Sushi might look a little different on the outside, but on the inside, he’s just like any other pouncing shelter kitten hoping to find a forever home to spend the rest of his days.
I love to lend my brand to do what I can for cats—and especially kittens in need. Sushi is a cat who lives with syndactylism. For those of you who aren’t quite sure what this means, it’s defined as a, “birth defect in which there is partial or total webbing connecting two or more fingers or toes.”
I caught up with Sushi’s foster cat mama to see if I could feature this tiny beauty on my website, and thankfully she agreed. So, everyone meet Sushi!
How old is Sushi, and how did he come into your life?
Sushi is about 10 weeks old. He was actually a stray that was brought into our rescue. I am his foster mom!
Can you tell me more about the rescue you’re with?
Lucky’s Cat House is a 501c3 foster based rescue in middle Tennessee. We work in the counties that do not have a shelter or support for cats. We do TNR, adoption, education, spay and neuter assistance, hoarding and neglect cases, emergency cases, etc. We are the acting cat shelter for 3 counties in Middle Tennessee.
When will Sushi be ready to go to his forever home?
Sushi is currently available for pre adoption and will be ready to go home once he is 2lbs and neutered!
What are Sushi’s favorite hobbies?
Sushi is a total lap cat. He will curl up and nap anywhere! He very much enjoys chasing his tail and playing with his foster kitten friends!
What’s something special you’d like people to know about Sushi?
Sushi has a condition called Syndactyly. His beans are fused together on his front paws. On one side, he has one bean and one claw. On the other he has two beans fused together and two claws fused together! He can still walk, run, and play like a normal kitty. It doesn’t bother him at all. 6. Any chance that Sushi could become a foster fail?? Even though it’s difficult to say goodbye, goodbye is the end goal. I have 5 cats of my own and the more I take on, the less I’m able to Foster. In the end, fostering is saving lives and I have to be strong enough to get these kittens healthy and socialized so they can be loved in a forever home.
I’d like to give a special “thank you” to Sushi’s foster mom, Morgan, for taking the time to answer my questions and for allowing me to share his story with all of the Cattitude Daily readers! And also for all the work she does for kittens in need, because it’s people like her that make this world a better place for our feline friends. Here’s to hoping that little Sushi lands the purrfect forever home!
