Lil Bub

Just in case you've been living under a rock somewhere, Lil Bub is a special needs cat and an internet celebrity. Forever cursed to look like a kitty, Lil Bub has one over the hearts of internet cat lovers, one person at a time. She was born, in 2011 - the runt of the litter to a feral mother but according to her owner, she comes from another planet. From Wikipedia -

When her owner Mike Bridavsky first met her, he picked her up and said "Hey, Bub!" Lil Bub is a "perma-kitten," a dwarf and a polydactyl cat. Her tongue always hangs out because of her short lower jaw and toothlessness but her appetite is unaffected. Lil Bub also suffers from a rare bone disorder called osteopetrosis for which she takes medication. During the filming of Lil Bub & Friendz she had a serious health episode but recovered. Bridavsky has studied reiki to care for her. Lil Bub's short legs and osteopetrosis restricts her movement "but she is a fantastic waddler." Contracts are negotiated with an out for Lil Bub's health issues. Lil Bub has been doing much better thanks to therapy with the Assisi Loop.
Bridavsky sells a variety of merchandise and donates much of the profits to animal rescue groups. Lil Bub helped him through a rough patch and he paid off six months of back rent on his recording studio. Bridavsky has a policy to not "approach anybody for anything." Lil Bub’s Lil Book: The Extraordinary Life of the Most Amazing Cat on the Planet was released September 3 2013.
