The Daily Squee: Watch This Old Footage Of Lil Bub When She Was Even Lil-er

Lil Bub As A Kitten!

We live in an era when “found footage” of Internet cat Lil Bub is treated as if someone found an old video of Jennifer Lawrence singing in her high school’s production of “The Sound Of Music.” It’s Lil Bub! At eight weeks old! Like all kittens, she is painfully adorable, but most noteworthy to me is that her face isn’t fucked up-looking yet. Like, her tongue is still resting inside her mouth normally. The tongue protrusion must have happened in kitty adolescence, poor thing.  [YouTube]

10 Reasons Internet-Famous Cats Are Better Than Real Cats — In GIFs!

reasons internet cats are better than real cats

It’s a daily habit that has turned into a daily ritual: I settle onto the train with my coffee, pull my iPhone from out of my purse, and click open my Instagram app to see what Pudge is up to. Pudge (above) isn’t a friend’s cat or a family member’s cat or even a cat I’ve met in real life. Pudge is an Internet-famous cat. She’s my favorite Internet-famous cat.

I love and always have loved cats — at one point, my parents had nine cats when I was growing up — and even I can admit that sometimes being a pet owner is a pain in the butt. With Pudge, I can look at cute pictures and videos in small doses when I feel like it … and then put my phone back in my purse and not have to deal with anyone clawing at the bedroom door while I’m trying to have sex.

After the jump, here are 10 reasons Internet-famous cats are better than real cats — in GIFs!

Grumpy Meets Bub!

I consider Lil Bub meeting Grumpy Cat as akin as to when Churchill met with Roosevelt. The two greatest cat powers on the continent, combining forces for cuteness. Watch as Bub and Grumps warily address one another at the second annual Internet Cat Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is my couch space, Bub says, tongue out, head forward. O RLY? Grumpy Cat responds, unsure of whether to tentatively put one paw forward for peace. How did the meeting end? WIth lots of purrs, we hope. [YouTube]

Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to complain about this choice photograph of Robert De Niro clutching Lil Bub at the Tribeca Film Festival Directors Brunch. However. As an animal lover, I do have my concerns that Bub’s saturation level has passed the point of Internet sensation and entered exploitation territory. Bub is but a very brief, very lovely shooting star in our mortal universe, not meant to stick around long, and I fear for her well-being when she is being paraded around at huge events with large crowds like so. But nobody else seems to be worried about this, so I should probably just shut my mouth. At least Mr. De Niro seems to be handling her with care.

Will Success Go To Lil Bub’s Head?

Guys, as you all know, I love me some Bub. Lil Bub brings a smile to my face and a song in my heart, and so I’m doubly thrilled to report that the forthcoming Bubbed up documentary about Lil Bub, “Lil Bub & Friendz,” has been accepted into the Tribeca Film Festival! This is every Internet cat’s dream!

To commemorate the occasion, the Bubsters over at Vice created a series of special posters, advertising Ms. Bubbington’s Royal Bubness. My favorite is the “Jaws”-themed one, but there’s a couple of other pretty great ones after the jump, too.

The Year In Memes We Totally Missed

Guys, a lot of stuff happens in a day, and sometimes important things slip through the brain cracks. There were a lot of memes we wanted to make happen this year — involving “American Horror Story,” Kanye West, soup and more — but some of them just didn’t get done. Well, before we move on to 2013, we wanted to get ‘em out of the way — some of the best memes that never happened. There’s still time (we hope!).

Tard Vs. Bub

When it comes to the Internet cat elite, there’s really no competition. Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat (otherwise known as Tard) are at the tip top of the cat cuteness food chain. But what do they really think about each other? If you ask Bub, well, she’s rather evasive. But we can assume from her sullen tone that she’s none to pleased to even be put in the same category as Tard. Talk about getting catty … (Sorry, I had to.) [Huffington Post]
