Kitty Lil Bub becomes internet sensation

A cat called Lil Bub has become an internet sensation after winning legions of fans online.

The little kitty has caused a big stir across sites such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitter – being named as the ‘cutest cat in the world’. Lil Bub first became famous when owner Michael Bridavsk started posting pictures of the cat with music artists who came to record at his music store in Indiana.

The feline suffers a rare bone deformity which means she is unable to shut her month and her tongue is constantly poking out. The tiny cat also has no teeth, as well as six claws.

However Lil Bub’s disability definitely hasn’t held her back. The moggie could afford to have diamond-encrusted cat flaps due to her successful book ‘Lil Bub’s Lil Book: The Extraordinary Life Of The Most Amazing Cat On The Planet’ as well as a clothing range. She even counts celebrities such as Robert De Niro as her friends and starred in a feature film, ‘Lil Bub and Friendz’.

The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last week. Talking about Lil Bubz at the premiere, Juliette Eisner, who produced and co-directed the documentary told rollingstone.com: “…people gravitate towards her because they just can’t take their eyes off her when they see her.”

As well as Lil Bubz, other ‘famous cats’ who have become popular online feature in the film, such as Keyboard Cat, Nyan Cat and Grumpy Cat.
