With more than 70,000 Facebook fans, 2.5 million YouTube views, and an appearance on Good Morning America, Bloomington’s Lil Bub is taking the world by storm. This “perma-kitten,” who will maintain kitten-like features for the rest of her life, was born with several abnormalities: She has extra toes, unusually small limbs, and no teeth. While some would see these oddities as a hardship, Lil Bub uses her uniqueness to charm her many fans. Bloom’s canine correspondent, Sophie Abrams, sat down with Bloomington’s most fabulous feline to talk about world fame.
Lil Bub visited her pal Sophie at the Bloom office. Associate editor Ron Eid shot a video of her time spent with us.
