Tribute To The Legendary Grumpy Cat And Lil Bub

2019 was a tough year for the cat lover community. It was in this one year that we lost two of largest cat legends that the world has ever known:

Tardar Sauce (Grumpy Cat) and Lillian Bubbles (Lil BUB). 

This is a tribute to them and their legacy. 

May they rest in peace. We'll miss you forever.

In the very words of Lil Bub's owners, "On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves. 

It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement. 

But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. 

Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams often. GOOD JOB BUB."

We love you, Lil Bub.

Even though this illustration is 6 years old, the message is so beautiful, powerful, and forever relatable that we wanted to share it with all of you. Just a warning though, it will hit you directly in the feels. 

The incredible artist, Booter-Freak, lost her beloved Siamese named Coco on December 2nd, 2013. Coco was 17 years and 9 months old. She lived a life full of love and this illustration, "I Love You" only confirms that.
