You may have noticed a
stuffed toy cat as you have entered into the library and/or on the
library’s Face Book page. This is Li’l Bub. An article
on him is included in this edition of The Sun.
You may have seen
pictures of Lil Bub, the Chichester Library mascot that arrived with
our new Library Directory, on our FaceBook page and wondered if
there were a backstory about this cat. It turns out there is
so much more to Lil Bub than just being a toy or even a mascot.
When first asked, Caroline the Librarian started to tell how Lil Bub
was a special needs cat and began to list all of the challenges this
little feline has. Since I asked the question because I knew
nothing of the background, I also did not know until then that Lil
Bub is an actual, living cat, who has become an internet sensation.
There is even a book out titled Lil Bub. (The library has a
copy of this book).
Because her owner has
been able to provide her with the very special care she has needed,
Lil Bub’s life is better than anyone could ever imagine. They
have also turned her life story and how her challenges have been met
into support of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals (ASPCA) and inspiring others to follow that lead.
