This is my first photo with BUB next our last photo together. On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves. It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement. But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. Dearest 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. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams o

The beautiful cat had a host of health issues and a severe bone infection. The owner Bridavsky had always been quite transparent about the health issues that the cat had. However, no one in the family had expected that she would go so soon.

The cat lovingly called Lil BUB was born in June 2011 and was adopted by Bridavsky. While she has an official Instagram profile, the owner also created a Tumblr profile with her adorable pictures.

Lil BUB suffered from Feline Dwarfism and remained the size of a kitten all through her life. She also had one extra toe on all her paws and also had a serious and rare bone infection called osteoporosis. As per the information available, Lil BUB is perhaps the only cat in the world to have this kind of health condition.

Lil BUB was also a philanthropist and helped raise over $700,000 to help the animals that had the similar conditions as she did.  The pioneer on the internet, and a cat that motivated other cats to go online, Lil BUB will forever have her legacy continue.

May Her Soul Rest in Peace!
