The documentary "Lil Bub and Friendz" deals with the tragic life of the cat, which was only granted a few months after the birth of doctors. But the cat, now around two years old, is doing well despite her handicap. Generally a nice story that can be made public. However, one can argue about the media exploitation of Lil Bub's life.
"Lil Bub and Friendz": Popular outsider?
The flagship of Lil Bub is his tongue, which is constantly hanging out, in addition to the missing teeth. The peculiarities can be traced back to an underdeveloped lower jaw from birth. Admittedly, the cat looks really cute, but can you profit from this disability? The documentary "Lil Bub and Friendz" was turned off anyway. The fact that Lil Bub is so popular is mainly attributed to Summer Burton, author of the American magazine "Buzzfeed", because people simply love underdogs like Lil Bub. Especially if their story has a hapyy end, as in this case, reports the "New York Post".

Lil Bub: Book published in September 2013
But the documentary "Lil Bub and Friendz" is far from everything. A book about the cat with the 'cute' handicap will follow in September 2013. The work "Lil Bub's Little Book: The Extraordinary Life of the Most Amazing Cat on the Planet" is of course about the extraordinary life of the cat and her rise to star. Similar to Grumpy Cat, it will not be long before animal rights activists will complain about the constant vortex - and not without good reason. After all, domestic cats should not travel around world history, but above all have a loving home.
Hype about Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub & Co.
Special cats have been a hit on the internet for months - and not just among animal lovers. Two house tigers are particularly popular at the moment: Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, who look constantly in a bad mood, who was born without teeth. The following on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Co. is growing continuously. No wonder the owners want to use the popularity to make money. Of course, that's not okay, after all, the cats cannot do anything for their external peculiarities and the subsequent media attention. The owner of Sam, a cat with funny eyebrows, donated to a good cause.
