The cat’s owner, Mike Bridavsky, shared the news in a newsletter via Brooklyn Vegan.

“On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB’s health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection,’ the newsletter reads. “Even knowing this, we weren’t expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves.”

RIP Lil Bub.

Bub was in the video for Run the Jewels’ “Meowpurrdy” for the Meow the Jewels album where tracks were remixed with cat sounds.
