As we now, Lil Bub, the internet celebrity cat passed away Sunday, Dec. 1. It was a tragic day for most, as Lil Bub has been a part of our culture for over half a decade. What better way to honor the fallen kitty, then by blasting her remains into space.

Yes, folks, you read that correctly. Lil Bub’s owner Mike Bridavsky wants to launch her into space. A bunch of other plans are hoped for as well so keep reading.

Lil Bub had been struggling with a bone infection and passed away at eight years old. She also raised money for many organizations during her time on earth.

According to Mike, Bub saved many lives both animal and human. Three years ago she started Lil Bub’s Big Fund with the ASPCA, where the money is used to help special needs animals nationwide. Though feline, she served as an inspiration for others with her determination and will to live.

No, Bridavsky is working with the University of Purdue to cremate Lil Bub and blast her ashes into space, to orbit the Earth and watch over us. Additionally, Bridavsky wants to link her satellite to a website and install a live feed so we can always know where Lil Bub is, looking down on us.

Another idea Bridavsky has is to continue the fundraising efforts that Lil Bun championed. He wants to implement a system that deducts a certain amount of money from the bank accounts of donators every time Lil Bub orbits the Earth.

Bridavsky has released no memorial information yet. He stated he might open a GoFundMe to get this project off the ground. We hear space flight isn’t cheap.

Lil Bub’s owner shared her passing on Sunday, Dec. 1 with the world.

This is my first photo with BUB next our last photo together. 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. 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. It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement. But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams o
