Lil Bub's Owner Wants to Send Late Cat's Ashes Into Outer Space

Lil Bub's Owner Wants to Send Late Cat's Ashes Into Outer Space

Lil Bub‘s owner is planning on sending his late cat’s cremated remains into outer space.

The owner, Mike Bridavsky, is hoping for the Instagram-famous feline’s ashes to orbit the Earth in a satellite, TMZ reports.

According to the outlet, Mike intends for Lil Bub to watch over the planet, and he’s hoping Purdue University (and possibly GoFundMe) will help him with this. (Purdue’s Small Animal Hospital was Bub‘s emergency care clinic, and they have an aerospace program.)

Mike is planning to set up her satellite with a website, where people can track her location over Earth. He also wants to set up a live feed on the satellite.

In addition, Mike wants to keep Bub‘s fundraising work going by allowing people to sign up for a certain amount of money to be withdrawn from their bank accounts each time the cat finishes a rotation around Earth, with the funds going toward homeless pets and veterinary research.
