Não bastasse as mortes de Keith Flint, Ric Ocasek e Daniel Johnston neste ano, o mundo pop acaba de ter mais uma baixa importante. Provavelmente gata mais famosa da internet, Lil Bub, de 8 aninhos, nos deixou na manhã de ontem.

Gatinha encontrada por Mike Bridavsky em Indiana, Lil Bub se tornou celebridade graças à sua graciosidade, somada a diversos problemas genéticos, no início desta década.

Com olhos redondos, linguinha pra fora, maxilar reduzido e deformidades nas patas, Lil Bub virou febre na internet quando seu dono passou a postar fotos e vídeos do dia a dia dela. A fama veio após um vídeo dela lambendo um cone de sorvete viralizar. E ela sempre parecia estar com cara de assustada, tadinha.

Depois disso, Lil Bub “escreveu” um livro, ganhou documentário, fez parceria com o Run the Jewels, gravou um disco em 2015 e teve um talk show com convidados como Steve Albini, Michelle Obama, Whoopi Goldberg e Ryan Adams. Ela tem hoje mais de 3 milhões de seguidores.

De acordo com seu dono Mike, a morte de Lil Bub foi inesperada na manhã de ontem. “Ela estava alegre e cheia de amor, deitada em nossa cama conosco no sábado à noite, mas inesperadamente faleceu pacificamente enquanto dormia”.

Abaixo, alguns vídeos icônicos da trajetória da gatinha.

This is my first photo with BUB next our last photo together. 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 o
