 About  Lil BUB

BUB is a very special one-of-a-kind critter. Some believe she may be the most amazing cat on the planet. In July of 2011, she was discovered as the runt of a healthy feral litter in a toolshed in rural Indiana at only a few weeks old. She was taken in as a rescue when it was clear that she would require special care. Since then, BUB has become one of the most famous cats on the planet. She is a twice-published author, a talk show host, the star of an award-winning documentary, the subject of ground- breaking genetic research, a Billboard chart-topping recording artist, the star of her own TV special on Animal Planet, and she has appeared on Good Morning America, TODAY, and The View. To date, she has helped raise over $400,000 for animals in need.
