Sure Grumpy Cat gets to hang out with other cat celebrities like Colonel Meow, Oskar the Blind Cat, Nala Cat, and Hamilton the Hipster Cat to make a cool Christmas music video, but wouldn't you rather spend the holidays with a cat who enjoys the simpler things, like a soft carpet and a cozy fireplace to sleep in front of?

Lil BUB, the cute cat with the tongue sticking out, has her own festive video of her relaxing in front of a roaring fireplace. The soothing sounds of Lil BUB purring and the crackling of the burning wood are the perfect backdrop for any Christmas activities.

Lil BUB is a rather special cat due to a myriad of genetic anomalies that include an extreme case of dwarfism that gives her a "perma-kitten" appearance; short, stubby legs; and a long body.

According to her site, "her lower jaw is significantly shorter than her upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in which is why her tongue is always hanging around."

But it's those differences that have turned Lil BUB from the runt of the litter into an Internet sensation thanks to her popularity on Tumblr and Reddit. She's even the star of her own documentary, "Lil BUB & Friendz," which won the Tribeca Online Festival Best Feature Film this year.

So sit back and enjoy this adorable cat purr, snort, wheeze, sigh and murmur like a "Star Wars" Tauntaun in "Lil BUB's Magical Yule Log" video.
