Bub the Toothless Dwarf Kitty with Bulging Eyes and a Happy Face

BUB is a very special kitty with a unique face – a pair of big green eyes and a tongue always sticks out. According to the Lil Bub page, she was the runt of a litter from a stray outdoor cat, and came with numerous mutations. Her foster family had a hard time finding her a good home, but one guy from Indiana took her in and now feeds her only the best food and treats her like a queen.

“BUB is a ‘perma-kitten’, which means she will stay kitten sized and maintain kitten-like features her entire life. She is also a dwarf, which means her limbs are disproportionately small relative to the rest of her body. She has very short, stubbly legs and a weird, long, serpent-like body. Her lower jaw is very short compared to her upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in (thus, she’s toothless), which is why her tongue is usually hanging out…. BUB is a polydactyl cat… in her case, one extra toe on all of her four paws. Her front paws each have two opposable thumbs. And then of course there are her big, bulging, wonder-filled green eyes. Some think she can see into the future with those things,” said on Lil Bub’s FB page.

Despite BUB’s “deformities”, she is rather healthy and happy. “She may not be able to jump on and off stuff, but she manages by climbing using her 22 claws…. Even though she has no teeth, she has a fierce appetite, and can take down half a bowl of dry food without any problems…. She is just one of nature’s happy accidents.”

    She is just too precious! And a living example of the joy that adopting a “special needs” animal can bring. Humans could learn a lot from the spirit and resilience she shows.

    That is the cutest cat I have ever seen. The little tongue sticking out is so cute. I love all animals but this cat is the cutest one (outside of my own cats) that I have seen so far.

    She is very cute, I have a mini-cat too, she is about the size of a 6 month old kitten, but is five years old, but, on my Charlotte, everything is proportional, except for her tail, which is extra long, so she can wash the last few inches of it without any problem. I found her in my garden in 2007 and has the sweetest personality of any cat I’ve ever met or had, but she is extremely shy to anyone other than me.
