Food Network Star Sandra Lee Rescues Justin Bieber’s Missing Cat Sushi

“Semi-Homemade” chef Sandra Lee has a new title: aunt to “Yummy” singer Justin Bieber’s cat Sushi.

Sushi went missing nearly one month ago, but he was rescued Thursday night by the Food Network star after turning up in the back yard of her Beverly Hills home. The feline nearly darted away from Lee, but he must have recognized that he was in the company of another food icon. Because moments later, he was “all over” Lee and her friend.

“I was thinking, ‘That is not an ordinary cat,'” Lee wrote in an Instagram post recalling the chance encounter.

And she was right. When Lee found Sushi, who has more than 500,000 Instagram followers, he was cold, scared, and stuck with porcupine quills. It was also clear that the emaciated cat was in desperate need of a good meal. And boy, did he end up in the right hands.

“Three cans of tuna and a bowl of warm milk later, the painful quills have been removed, and we are cuddling on the couch — drowsy and milk drunk,” Lee continued. “The purring baby was calmed, so we took the collar off and called the number.”

“I thought the young man on the other end of the phone was going to either burst out in shrieks of joy or burst out in tears,” she said of Bieber. “He was so happy, shocked and stunned.”

Lee still had no idea who the cat or his famous owners was as she swaddled Sushi in a blanket and petted him on the couch as he napped during the 40 minutes it took Bieber to get to Lee’s house. Then she got the surprise of a lifetime.

“It was THE SUSHI!” Lee wrote in all caps. “Didn’t realized SUSHI THE CAT was a whole thing!”

According to Bieber, it wasn’t just the Los Angeles traffic that took him so long to get to Sushi sooner. The cat journeyed “miles and miles away.”

“He looks extremely skinny and has a very sad meow,” Bieber reported on his Instagram account. “He is home now safe and sound! Thank you God for protecting him!”

Lee could not believed Sushi survived such a long journey.

“I can’t even imagine what Sushi’s three weeks of hell running up and down Beverly Hills mountains were like,” she wrote. “There are so many wild animals in the canyon, and I cannot believe he survived.”

At the end of the day, Lee learned a valuable lesson from the experience: “If you see something, say something. And if you see something, do something!”

Now she’s considering getting a cat like Sushi so she can create her own happily ever after.
