Lil Bub, the perma kitten celebrity cat that is loved the world over, has been developing a growth on the side of her face for some time now. Big Bub Mike gave thuis update on Lil Bubs Facebook page
BUBdate! After getting off antibiotics for a third time, I noticed that her jaw started to increase in size again. The cause of it is a bone infection that is adding mass to her jaw, which has been ongoing for over 2 years, and is a known symptom of osteopetrosis. Even at its current size, it is not affecting her well-being or appetite whatsoever. She is still able to open and close her mouth normally, and it’s not encroaching on her windpipe, so there’s still no immediate cause for concern (other than the infection itself). We are putting her back on long-term antibiotics and hope that it will stop growing. The mass will never go down in size, but hopefully we can prevent it from growing any larger. Remember that even though we can see it, she really has no idea it’s there. She is living her life full of positivity and love, and is happy as ever. As always, thanks for everyone’s concern. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as always.
We wish Lil Bub and Mike the best and send them positive vibes!
