Lil Bub is really unique in her appearance making most of the cat lovers attracted to her, but we want to know the main secret behind this unique appearance.

Having a short lower jaw is not the only problem from which Lil Bub suffers as she also suffers from osteopetrosis which is a bone disease or disorder.
