About Sushi (and Luna)
Born ~2014, M, Black nd White Persian
Adoption Fee: $550 for the pair
Sushi and Luna MUST be adopted together. There are NO exceptions. See Luna here.
Purebreds was contacted on a Tuesday about four Persians who had to be out of an apartment by Saturday for a new tenant to move in on Sunday. The owner who had bred these kitties was moving into Assisted Living I think. It was all happening very quickly. The younger pair, Peanut, and Poppy, went to a different Purebreds foster and have been adopted. The senior pair came to me. ( It was that or euthanasia on Sunday morning)
Luna arrived looking beautiful, as though she had just been groomed. Sushi was utterly adorable but was a mess with huge scabs on his hairless flanks from fleas (according to a vet visit a couple of days prior.) You can see him wearing an e-collar in the photo below, poor guy. He recovered perfectly. We took them each to a vet for an exam, an age estimate, and a blood panel. The vet estimated they were both about 9 -10 yrs old, which fit well with their high energy level. Their blood panels were very good. Luna needed to be spayed.
We fell in love with them right away and were thrilled with the good health news. What a special pair. Their personalities are huge. Luna is smart as a whip, a curious little affectionate treasure. At her spay, they cut lots of her long fur off, so in many photos, she looks slender and long-legged with all the fluff gone. You can get a good idea of how she normally looks in the photo of her and Sushi on the desk. Her coat almost touches the desk.
Sushi, with his wonderful spots, is great fun. He will follow you around to get all the attention you have time for. Luna, when she sees that, is jealous enough to common over and push her head into your hand for some loving too. Likewise, if you are petting her, Sushi will come over. These two cats are very interactive with humans, all and any humans. They have so much character. Luna especially, is a demon at playing catch a feather. Sushi explores everything, climbs into every bag, and works very hard to entertain his humans. He is utterly patient in your arms and will allow his eyes to be cleaned etc.
Sushi is quite a big cat, a solid nine pounds. Luna is much smaller but dominates him most of the time. These two need a home with a family who has lots of time for them. Sushi especially is needy for attention. They are used to other cats. I don’t know how they are with dogs. They would be fine with children who weren’t too young.
They need a Persian experienced family who can appreciate what absolute treasures they are.
Sushi is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pets and create an ideal forever home.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
