Sushi thinks he's a cat!

Sushi is confused. He thinks he is a cat, not a Shiba Inu!

We have 2 cats - a Torti named Tatiana, who is only a few months older than Sushi. Our other one is a black cat named Bailey.

Sushi grew up with Tatiana. Shibas are known to be very catlike and I see that quite often. When they play, Sushi will try to mimic how Tatiana plays - uses his paws and just the way he moves. It's interesting to watch them.

Sushi has a folded up comforter in our livingroom which he likes to sleep on. One afternoon, Tatiana decided she wanted to figure out if there was anything inside the folds of the comforter. She pawed at it until she could crawl inside of it. Sushi, of course, was FASCINATED. Ever since then, we notice Sushi's comforter is messed up, moved around. We saw him pawing at it a few times then would lie down on it. I realized he was copying Tatiana once again.

Tonight, I was finally able to get a good picture of him - I guess he doesn't need to be tucked into bed anymore, he takes care of that himself!
