Internet a perdu dimanche 1er décembre l'un des chats les plus populaires sur les réseaux sociaux. Le propriétaire du chat Lil Bub, qui compte 2,4 millions d'abonnés sur Instagram, a annoncé sur le réseau social la mort de son animal de compagnie. 

Six mois après la mort d'une autre icône du web, Grumpy Cat, qui avait perdu la vie suite à une infection urinaire, les followers ont donc appris le décès de Lil Bub. De son vrai nom Lillian Bubbles, la chatte star souffrait de maladies, telles que le nanisme et l'ostéopétrose, également appelée "maladie des os de marbre", comme le rappelle son maître sur Instagram.

Sa mâchoire inférieure n'était pas suffisamment développée et obligeait l'animal à avoir la langue pendue en permanence. C'est cette particularité physique qui a rendu célèbre le félin. Sa popularité avait même contribué à une récolte de dons aux Etats-Unis, comme s'en est félicité son maître sur les réseaux sociaux. Dans l'État de l'Indiana, un foyer en faveur des animaux avait récolté plus de 700.000 dollars.

This is my first photo with BUB next our last photo together. 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 o
