As Bridavsky notes in his tribute to Lil Bub, all told she raised over $700,000 for genetic and biological research for special needs animals.

She had her own Tumblr account created in 2011 and even made celebrity appearances. Lil Bub also collaborated with Kelly Deal collaborated on a song together called "Shirtcrush", appeared on Run the Jewels' Meow the Jewels track "Meowpurrdy", and helped reimagine "The Super Bowl Shuffle" alongside My Morning Jacket's Jim James and others. She also had disorders such as dwarfism and was rescued after beginning life as a feral kitten.

But in a newsletter to Lil Bub's fans this weekend, Brivadsky announced that the cat had died "unexpectedly" after "battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection". As a result of poor development while in her mother's tummy she was born with dwarfism, no teeth, an underdeveloped jaw and extra toes.

"BUB was happy and packed with like laying in our bed with us Saturday night, however all staunch now handed away peacefully in her sleep", wrote Bridavsky.

"I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that hard decision ourselves..." he continued.

'It's inconceivable to place into phrases the profound impact that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of 1000's of homeless pets, and on the lives of these of you which have cared for her as if she had been your individual household, ' Bridavsky wrote.

But instead of creating a split screen, Mr Trump failed to produce the statesmanlike narrative his campaign had hoped for. But the video quickly cuts to the Tuesday footage of the leaders at Buckingham Palace and their animated conversation.

"She looked very weird, like a little alien", Bridavsky, now 39, said of his first time seeing Lil Bub. But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. "I know that her spirit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better." .

On Monday, the owner, Mike Bridavsky, posted on social media that his dearest friend, a cat, had passed on Sunday.

He went on to explain how bub was responsible for spearheading the first national fund for special needs pets, as well raising over $700,000 (£540,000) for animal charities.

Essentially the most well-known dwarf cat on social media has died from a bone an infection.

Of course, blasting a cat's remains into orbit ain't gonna be cheap ... and Lil Bub's owner says he's trying to work something out with Purdue for funding, or he's just gonna start a GoFundMe.
