Lil BUB is a cat raising funds for ASPCA (that’s American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)…

 

‘More specifically, she is the most amazing cat on the planet. Discovered as the runt of a healthy feral litter in a tool shed in rural Indiana, she was taken in as a rescue when it was clear that she would require special care. Since then, BUB has overcome great challenges, is a published author, a talk show host, a movie star, and has helped raise well over $300,000 for animals in need.’

 

You can donate to her ASPCA page here.
