Robert De Niro

Goodbye Mr. Jinx ...

Hello Lil Bub

EXCLUSIVE

She can't pee in a toilet ... and you probably can't milk her nipples ... but Internet cat sensation Lil Bub is still BFFs with Robert De Niro.

"The World's Cutest Cat" and De Niro hit it off earlier today at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC ... Mr. Jinx be damned.

De Niro's been dying to meet Bub ever since he heard she'd be featured at the festival -- telling the Hollywood Reporter, he REALLY wanted to take a picture with the deformed feline ... and De Niro always gets what he wants.

(FYI, Bub suffers from several genetic mutations including dwarfism, polydactylism, and a deformed lower jaw.)

Now, a word from Jack Byrnes on why cats are better than dogs...

DeNiro is one great actor, but it was unfortunate that both he and Robin Williams were with John Belushi doing cocaine, the night Belushi died. Recently, Robin Williams has been going around saying he was "set-up" to be there that night. Take ownership Robin.

What's sad is thanks to Grumpy Cat (whom I think is adorable myself) and cats like Bub, people will pay high dollar to have their own "grumpy little kitty" and breeders will intentionally inbreed their cats trying to get the right combo of mutation so they can fetch a high price to the "collectors" of trendy animals. These poor things, have a very, very short lifespan and often, the end of it is in pain when all the conditions catch up to them. And breeders are now starting to do it intentionally. Oh and guess what happens to the cat not grumpy enough? Yeah, it's killed.

There's a ridiculous amount of Chihuahua's in shelters being killed because everyone saw that dang movie and Paris Hilton carrying it around like an accessory so everyone snapped them up. To meet demand, breeders inbred, force bred and anything else they could do. Now you got a bunch of half healthy dogs, and most of them end up in a shelter and since they are no longer "trendy", most end up dead.

Enjoy Grumpy Cat absolutely. But don't seek out to buy one like him. ~End PSA~
