Famous cat Lil Bub grants A Special Wish during her stop in Rocky River (video)

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio - Internet cat sensation Lil Bub and her owner, Mike Bridavsky, a Lyndhurst native, made a stop in Rocky River on Saturday for more that 125 fans who waited hours to see the star feline.

But one fan, Paige Johnson, 16, of Willoughby, received a wish from the Cleveland chapter of A Special Wish Foundation to get a special meet-and-greet with Lil Bub, who has nearly 2 million followers on Instagram. Johnson battled cancer as an infant and has overcome many obstacles, and is now an honor roll student in high school.

Bridavsky and Lil Bub now live in Bloomington, Ind.

The event was at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, with all the proceeds benefiting Tails from the City, a local non-profit all volunteer group dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of abandoned, abused, neglected and homeless cats and kittens.
