Every once and a while one of our furry friends finds instant stardom on the internet just because they are so adorably fuzzy and such is the case with Lil Bub. When I first came across Lil Bub six months ago I indeed found his funny furry face to be pretty irresistible. Although I did notice that Lil Bub always seemed to have his little pink tongue sticking out I never really thought much of it other then it was incredibly cute and after watching videos of the kitty cutie online I found Lil Bub also made sweet Ewok like noises when she was eating or enjoying a good petting session. However it was not until Lil Bub was featured on Buzzfeed after she was invited to spend a day at their office that I decided to look further into the story of Lil Bub.
What I discovered when I read the story of Lil Bub was sad yet heartwarming as Lil Bub’s unique look and purr was not just a character trait of the fantastic fur ball but instead was due to several genetic mutations she suffered from at birth making her a perma-kitten. These genetic mutations cased Lil Bub to suffer from dwarfism, polydactylism, and a deformed lower jaw, leading her to be named by Buzzfeed as “Natures Happy Accident.” Today, with 77,026 likes on Facebook, her own clothing line, series of Youtube videos with over 1 million views, 4,953 followers on Twitter and being featured on numerous blogs including Jezebel, Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post (and of course now The Lucky Penny) I would say that this pretty kitty’s star will just continue to rise! Lil Bub may have been born with genetic mutations but she is a great example of how being different never means being less beautiful or well loved. Congratulations Lil Bub, with your irresistible fuzzy face and inspirational rise to fame, we think you are just purrrrrfect to be named this week’s Fuzzy Friday Feature! Have a great weekend everyone!
