You probably won't catch Lil Bub twerking any time soon.

But if you find her sticking her tongue out like Miley Cyrus, you should know: She started that, like, fur-ever ago.

"Bub's been sticking her tongue out for like millions of years," Bub's owner, Mike Bridavsky, told PEOPLE while stopping by the studio with the famous feline. "Miley started like a week ago."

Not that we'd be surprised if Cyrus was stealing moves from Lil Bub: Bub's been dubbed the Cutest Cat Ever, and the Internet phenomenon thinks that's pretty great. But during her interview, the 2-year-old "perma-kitten" conveyed to us (through her unique squeaks and meows) that she's a lot more than just a pretty (Read: stunning) face.



Lil Bub is a cat with friends, lots of them (more than 32,000 followers on Twitter at last count), and she can make a wickedly funny prank call. When it comes to pillow fights, take our advice and don't challenge her to one – just don't. You'll end up with feathers in your mouth.

Here's your chance to really get to know the paw-dorable feline. Tune into Lil Bub's Special Special, a half-hour TV romp airing this weekend on Animal Planet. Comedian Amy Sedaris stars as the cat's "bubby-sitter," who hangs out with the feline and her friends when Bridavsky leaves the house. During the hilarious slumber party, Lil Bub eats pizza (topped with yarn), and her costar, rocker Andrew W.K., makes an un-fur-gettable music video with the "magical cat" as his muse.
