Lil Bub Is The Cutest Cat You’ll Ever See!

Lil Bub

Have you met Lil Bub? This little cutie has taken the Internet by storm, and her fame has led to a book deal, a movie (which won Best Feature Film at Tribeca), and devout followers on her Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram accounts!

BUB has many unique characteristics that make her a very special one of a kind critter. BUB was the runt of an otherwise healthy litter from a stray outdoor mother, and was born with several genetic mutations that make her special. She is just one of nature’s happy accidents. Her foster family had a hard time finding her a home, but she now lives happily with a dude that 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, stubby 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 (yes, that’s right, she’s toothless!), which is why her tongue is usually hanging out. Don’t worry, BUB has a very healthy appetite and eats dry and wet food with no problems.

Additionally, BUB is a polydactyl cat, meaning she has extra toes, and 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.

BUB squonks, squeaks, gurgles, snorts, hiccups, purrs and sometimes even growls. She also occasionally meows, but even those sound kinda funny.

Despite her weird looks and numerous “deformities”, BUB is a healthy, happy cat. She may not be able to jump on and off stuff, but she manages by climbing using her 22 claws. She also can’t quite run or walk very well… but she is a fantastic waddler. Even though she has no teeth, she has a fierce appetite, and can take down half of a bowl of dry food without any problems (the other half winds up scattered on the floor). Just like other cats, she poops and pees in the litter box, likes to chase bugs and is always cleaning her luxurious coat and sometimes even her dude’s beard.

Visit Lil Bub’s YouTube page, and you’ll be hooked in no time! 🙂

Happy New Year From Lavish Treats

Happy New Year 2014

From all of us here at Lavish Treats, Happy New Year!

Having Some Fun At My Work’s Holiday Gift Swap

The other night, my work held their annual Holiday Gift Swap. Some people might call it a Yankee Swap, White Elephant, or some other variation. But regardless of what you call it, the rules are the same.

Since we typically have a lot of participants, they only allow a gift to be stolen three times before it’s retired. It definitely adds another level of excitement to the game!

This year, I decided to have a little fun, packing my awesome gift in the following box:

My husband got this Prank Pack last year, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to prank someone with them. Imagine tearing off the wrapping paper and finding yourself with a Wake & Bake Dream Griddle Alarm Clock!

The person who picked my gift was a little stunned when she saw it, but she eventually opened it up and found her real gift (a Knob Creek Gift Pack).

Everyone had a good laugh about it. 😀
