Daily Cute: Lil Bub Overcomes Deformities and Learns to Climb Stairs

Daily Cute: Lil Bub Overcomes Deformities and Learns to Climb Stairs

Bub is one of the most inspirational cats around, and here’s why. Bub was a feral cat when she was found in a litter in rural Indiana. A year ago, Bub’s osteoporosis had worsened and caused a number of deformities in her body. Vets and specialists said it was only a matter of time before she would stop moving altogether, but her owner knew Bub deserved another chance.

Thanks to encouragement, special treatments and lots of determination, Bub can not only stand upright and walk normally again, but also run and jump for the first time in her life. Now, she’s climbing up flights of stairs. She struggles a bit in the beginning, but makes her way to the top every time. Without question, Bub is a definite inspiration for animals and humans alike, and her story makes a heartwarming Daily Cute for the season.

I read about Bub in an local city newspaper~and was so touched that her owners and she had fought the good fight. As a person that works with individuals with multiple disabilities, I know that God brings everyone here for a purpose or purposes~Bub, my students, me, all...Hats off to Bub and all who have helped bring a protected and better life to this beautiful little creature. You are blessed!

It is heartwarming, but it is also heart breaking that this sweet cat has suffered that much. I wish nothing had to suffer.. Not human or animal either one..
