Nothing Gold Can Stay. A Lil' Bub memorial thread.

Lil Bub is gone and everything sucks.

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 often. GOOD JOB BUB.

    Lil Bub was given a good life, full of love from her owner and a world of strangers. At the end of the day, that's the most any cat can hope for (hell, it's the most any of US can hope for in OUR lives), and the most any of us can give to the animals in our lives.
    I'm happy to have gotten to know her, even if through the remove of the internet, and I'm happy to know she was loved until the end.
    It's a tough thing, raising a pet, knowing that (in all likelihood) you'll outlive them in the end. But it's a beautiful thing, that I wouldn't trade for the world.
    Godspeed, Lil Bub, and thank you for everything. Sincerely, a random stranger on the internet.

    Lil bub was a sweet girl and she encouraged me to adopt a disabled kitten of my own, knowing that they are still full of joy and love.

    I'm glad she at least passed peacefully in her sleep and spared her humans the difficult decision of putting her down.

    Even in death she was thoughtful and sweet.

    Rest in peace, Lil' Bub

    Grumpy Cat doesn't bother me because he really felt like he was treated as a product, not a pet. Plus the whole 'Tard thing.

    But man that dude sure loved Bub.
