The event raised $2,162 with $1,162 of that going to Cherryland Humane Society and $1,000 towards the Lil BUB Big Fund for special needs pets. Overall, the Lil BUB Big Fund has raised over $75,000 since being created in February of this year.
While visiting our city, Lil BUB and his owner, Mike Bridavsky, stayed at the Park Place Hotel which is a pet-friendly hotel in Traverse City.
Bridavsky participated in a short interview before the internet cat video festival where we learned that he met his new bride when Lil BUB was introduced to Grumpy Cat. We also saw how attached Lil BUB is to his dad when Bridavsky took a walk across the stage and Lil BUB followed him.
The internet cat video festival was a lot of fun and I’m hoping that we have more events like this in Traverse City in the future.
