I adore lil Bub. She seems like the happiest of cats to me. Her owner treats her like a queen and has provided her the best of medical care. Consequently, she has far exceeded expectations in dealing with the limitations caused by her deformities. And the monies left over from her books, pictures, etc are donated to animal charities.
Lil Bub is a little hero. In regards to a mascot, every picture I open up I feel could be a poster child for blep. It's such a great little community here. The only time I see any discussion it is over ol' licky bleppy.
It's like arguing which cloud is more fluffy. I love it. I love you all.
She has to be the most spoiled little kitty alive :) Here is another favorite of mine! Kitten BUB!
Her owner is such a cutie too!
Recently there have been videos of her being able to play, run, and jump. Apparently her owner has found a medical treatment that has really helped. Also I watch too many Lil Bub videos....
Oh my goodness I am seriously melting over that pic of Lil Bub! That has to be the sweetest thing ever! She looks so happy and snuggly!
Major kudos to her hooman for taking such good care of her!
Lil BUB is the best. And her dude is such a good owner. She seems to be in good health now too!
I love that Lil BUB's dude raises so much money for animal charities. He and BUB are helping so many other pets :)
Watch a video of his owner kissing and cuddling him, that always cheers me up. Bub seems to love his owner so much, it's surprising he's a cat.
Lil Bub is a girl who was born a perma kitten, so she'll be kitten sized forever. She's also a dwarf, so she's disproportionately sized. She ALSO has no teeth, so her tongue hangs out.
She's healthy, especially now that she's being treated for some bone issues - she had a hard time walking for a while, but with treatment she can walk and run and jump again now!
She even had her own TV show on YouTube for a while - Lil Bub's Big Show!
There is only one Bub.
I try to look at it as Lil' bub is like the most loved cat ever, thankfully! She's a great kitty according to the videos, and loves life.
Whereas /sub/catsstandingup is a totalistic subreddit that effectively bans any discussion at all, it's easy karma though.
But to end on a positive note: Cats yay!
