Cutest Cat Ever!

Check out "Bub," the dwarf cat. Born with huge eyes, no teeth, extra toes and very short legs. Her owner has created a blog page for her It's clear from reading that he adores her, and treats her very well. She was an accident, and he has said he would not breed her to continue the trend, saying: "There are so many risks to her health, we don't even know if she would survive pregnancy. Additionally, inbreeding cats to reproduce genetic deformities that humans happen to think is 'cute' is what I would call 'fucked.'

"BUB is amazing. But forcing her to reproduce with a high risk of pain and possibly death for financial gain is crazy. I would never do that."

(BTW, this IS where some of the crazy dog breeds have come from, genetic health issues included.)

Here is Bub greeting her owner after he was gone for a week:

That cat is weirdly adorable. And it's awesome to hear the owner is smart enough and cares for her enough not to try breeding.

She looks like a pug cat.

Her only health issue, apparently, is goopy eyes from her pug-like, smashed-in sinuses.

Yes, she is weirdly adorable. :)

Aww, she's so cute!

I'm glad the owner is smart and humane enough not to breed her.
