There are a lot of adorable cats on the Internet, but maybe none more so than the miniscule and irresistible Lil Bub. Lil Bub has been described by Buzzfeed as “Nature’s Happy Accident”. Lil Bub has a host of genetic mutations: she is a dwarf, she has six toes on each paw and opposable thumbs, she has a shortened lower jaw and no teeth. She is as tiny as a kitten and will never grow any larger. All of these traits combine to make the most amazing cat on the planet.
Gotham Books will release ‘Lil Bub’s Lil Book: the Extraordinary Life of the Most Amazing Cat on the Planet’ in September of 2013. The book is written by Bub as telepathically transmitted to her guardian, Mike Bridavsky. The full color picture book is suitable for all ages and chock full of photos of the adorable feline. The book doesn’t exactly have a story so much as a running commentary about how amazing Lil Bub is.
Children will love that Lil Bub pilots a space ship, rides a skateboard, dreams about traveling the world, and that the hardcover is the perfect size for their hands. Adults will love the clever sets created for the photoshoot.
Lil Bub has made it her mission to raise money and educate others about the importance of pet adoption, spaying and neutering, and special needs pets. The money she has raised has been donated to various shelters, organization and animal charities across the U.S.
Mike Bridavsky (Lil Bub’s “Dude”) adopted her when she was two months old, and attends to her every need. He shares his home with four other cats; Oskar, Special Agent Dale Cooper, Josie, and Vivian, all of which were adopted or rescued just like Bub.
A free advanced copy of Lil Bub was provided to the reviewer by Penguin Group.
