LIL BUB the cat passed away on Sunday at the age of eight.  According to her owner, she’d been fighting a bone infection, but her passing was unexpected.  Lil Bub has been an Internet sensation for six years.  Back in May, Grumpy Catdied, and now, LIL BUB is gone.

According to her owner, Lil Bub passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday.  She’d been fighting a bone infection at the time of her death, but her passing was unexpected. Lil Bub was eight.  According to experts, the first two years of a cat’s life are roughly equal to the first 25 of a human’s, and after that, each additional year is around four “cat years.”  So, she was maybe around 49 in cat years.

Lil Bub went viral in 2012 because of her unique look, which was partially because she suffered from feline dwarfism. She also had bulging eyes and a tongue that always stuck out.  Lil Bub had about three million followers on Facebook and 2.4 million followers on Instagram.

By the way, Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat DID meet once.  It was at the second annual Internet Cat Video Film Festival in 2013.
