CAT FRIDAY: LIL BUB is now the most successful cat on the planet, and other cat news

Posted By on Fri, Sep 6, 2013 at 1:05 PM

In the world of Internet cats if you blink you'll miss something, so for this week, we're here to fill readers in on some of the best and most interesting cat news that's been virally spreading across the Internet. On a cool, rainy afternoon there's not many better things we can think of than perusing the web and looking at cute, weird and funny cat-related, time wasters mind-stimulating content. Let's get started!

This past Tuesday, Sept. 3, was probably one of the most important days ever in the history of cats becoming famous through the power of the Internet. On that day, one of the world's most beloved Internet cats, LIL BUB, became the first cat ever to have her own documentary, her own book and her own talk show. On Tuesday, aka GOOD JOB BUB DAY, she debuted her online talk show to complete the perfect trifecta of BUB. Take that, pop stars-turned-actresses-turned-models-turned fashion designers. BUB is waaay cooler and waaay cuter.

Thanks to GOOD JOB BUB DAY, everyone can enjoy BUB's epic movie, Lil Bub & Friendz, which was originally screened at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. Get BUB's book, Lil BUB's Lil Book: The Extraordinary Life of the Most Amazing Cat on the Planet here and watch the first episode of her show, featuring Whoopi Goldberg, below!

In related news, last weekend was host to the Second Annual Internet Cat Video Film Festival at the Minneapolis State Fair, where cat history was made when BUB and the equally-famous Grumpy Cat met face-to-face for the first time. Check out highlights of the event on Catsparella and crazy/cute/weird photos on Buzzfeed.

And last but not least, we present to you the weirdest cat thing we have ever found. The CATleidoscope.  

Happy Cat Friday!
