FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

Social media star Lil Bub is coming to Franklin this weekend.

The famous cat will hold a meet-and-greet with fans this Saturday at the Factory at Franklin.

This is all part of a special fundraising event for the Williamson County Animal Shelter.

Lil Bub rose to internet stardom in 2012 because of her big eyes and dangling tongue.

The cat was rescued after being born as the runt of a feral litter in rural Indiana. She has several genetic issues, which will cause her to stay "kitten-sized" through the rest of her life. Despite the challenges she faces, Little Bub is a very happy and healthy cat.

The event begins at 11 a.m. Saturday. Ticket prices range from $10 to $100 for the ultimate meet-and-greet experience. Click here for more information.
