Cute or Cranky? Lil Bub vs. Grumpy Cat Showdown

| 3 Comments

Do you prefer your adorableness with a side of saucy, or straight-up sweet?

It’s time to decide!!

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, has become an internet sensation since her apparently scowling face graced Reddit this past September. Her mother is a calico domestic short hair cat and her probable father is a cat with grey and white stripes, so there’s really no telling exactly what cat breed’s traits went into her distinctive face. And her pet parents say she’s not grumpy at all, but loves to be held and rubbed.

Lil Bub is a rescue cat, found almost two years ago in a tool shed by her now-owner, Mike Bridavsky. He posted pics of Lil Bub online and the rest is history. Lil Bub’s adorable looks came to be in part because she’s a dwarf. Her limbs are short and stout, her lower jaw didn’t develop fully and her teeth didn’t grow in, so her tongue is always poking out, and she’s polydactyl, meaning she has more than 20 toes (2 extras!).
