During her short life, Lil Bub managed to act in films and become an invited guest on the Animal Planet show, and her master’s charity fund managed to raise over $700 thousand to help other animals.
In the USA, on December 1, the cat Lil Bub died, which became one of the most famous animals on the Internet. On her Instagram, 2.4 million people signed up. Lil Bub was 8 years old, according to The New York Times.
The cat was born in 2011, and a year later became famous on Reddit — her photo appeared on the main page of the site. After that, the human of Lil Bub started blogging his pet on Tumblr. In 2013, she starred in a documentary about the famous animals Lil Bub & Friendz, which was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, and she was invited to the Animal Planet show. The Bub had one of the forms of feline dwarfism, which is why she has remained the size of a kitten all her life. In addition, she had many other genetic abnormalities: disproportionately short limbs, an extra finger on each of the paws and problems with teeth — for this reason, the tongue was constantly falling out. Thanks to her, the charity pet care fund managed to raise $700,000 for pets with special needs.
On Instagram of another famous cat, Grumpy, who died in May of this year, on December 2, a joint photo appeared with Lil Bub.
“Dear BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world,” wrote her owner Mike Bridavsky.
