Meet Lil Bub, a truly magical space cat. Found in a tool shed in rural Indiana and born with lots of genetic anomalies, such as dwarfism, this adorable kitten is healthy nonetheless, managing to garner attention as possibly the cutest kitten on the internet. Her owner, Mike Bridavsky, even says that the internet-famous cat might be from outer space!
“Originally it was just because this tiny kitten looks like an alien her personality, her demeanor, the way she travels – she’s not a cat. She’s this complete one-of-a-kind creature, like Gizmo”,- says Bridavsky. So what started as a few photos on the internet of an adorable dwarf cat has now turned into quite a serious deal – Lil Bub has over 200,000 Instagram and Facebook followers, millions of Youtube viewers, her own web TV show with guest celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg, a book, and an award-winning documentary. And if that’s not enough, this famous cat also advocates for homeless and special needs pets all over the universe.
Even more importantly, the adorable cat has been sending positive vibes through the internet, spreading the message that being different is beautiful. Some of her fans have even said that Bub’s message has helped them get through hard times.
