LIL BUB  is “a real animal. The most amazing creature on the planet.” So says the blurb. Lil Bub is “one of nature’s happy accidents”..

Bub is a “perma-kitten”, which means she will stay kitten sized and maintain kitten-like features her entire life. She is also a dwarf, which means her limbs are disproportionately small relative to the rest of her body. She has very short, stubby legs and a weird, long, serpent-like body. Her lower jaw is very short compared to her upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in (yes, that’s right, she’s toothless!), which is why her tongue is usually hanging out. Additionally, BUB is a polydactyl cat, meaning she has extra toes, and in her case, one extra toe on all of her four paws. Her front paws each have two opposable thumbs. And then of course there are her huge, bulging, wonder-filled green eyes.

Here’s Lil Bub, the prototype cat, the one that is kind to mice and birds. Two thumbs up for Lil Bub:
