Trust us when we say that there are few things as cool as meeting Lil BUB in person. She really is a one-of-a-kind, spectacular creature. The little cat from outer space reminds us all how completely acceptable it is to be unique.
Last weekend we flew to the beautiful Windy City to attend the Chicago Internet Cat Video Festival, where Lil BUB and her Dude, Mike Bridavsky, were hosting the event. Prior to each of the three screenings shown at the historic Athenaeum Theatre, BUB and her Dude held meet-and-greet sessions for lucky limited ticket holders, with all proceeds from the sales benefiting the Tree House Humane Society and Chicago Cat Rescue.
While we waited our turn to say hello to our favorite feline, we came up with these eight amazingly cool things about seeing Lil BUB

About Dee and Nik: When these two aren’t traveling the globe in search of cat-themed fun, they’re ‘telling it straight up’ so that fellow feline fans can live vicariously through their exploits! They work hard, and they play harder, immersing themselves in the cat-world for the sense of community and the thrill of the surreal. Both are admittedly foster-failures, and combined, offer loving forever homes to eleven rescue kitties! Cheers!
