Fans of the adorable internet phenom, Lil BUB, will be meeting the famed feline as she poses for selfies and hosts a special presentation at the fundraiser event, The Story of Lil BUB, at The Factory at Franklin, May 13. Proceeds will benefit The Williamson County Animal Shelter and Lil BUB’s Big FUND for special needs pets.
Lil BUB captured the world’s imagination in 2012. Her big eyes, dangling tongue, and “perma-kitten” features make up her distinguishing appearance, but her remarkable story, her determination, spirit, and inspirational message of acceptance, positivity, and hope are what have earned her millions of devoted fans. Since her rise to international fame, Lil BUB has been the focus of an award-winning documentary Lil BUB & Friendz, hosted a talk show web series with guests like Whoopi Goldberg and Michelle Obama, has published two books, and – most recently – released a Billboard-charting album.
BUB was born with a multitude of genetic anomalies which all add up to one of nature’s happiest accidents. She is a “perma-kitten”, which means she will stay kitten sized and maintain kitten-like features her entire life. She also has an extreme case of dwarfism, which means her limbs are disproportionately small relative to the rest of her body and she has some difficulty moving around. She has short, stubby legs and a long, ferret-like body. Her lower jaw is significantly shorter than her upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in which is why her tongue is always hanging around.
