Living in this crazy technological world, where our whole lives are on our phones, knowing how to take the perfect selfie is definitely a useful skill to possess.
After all, how else are you supposed to meet the love of your life, get married, and start a family if there isn’t an Instagram photo to begin with?
All jokes aside, being a selfie enthusiast isn’t really necessary for reaching one’s personal goals – but it sure doesn’t divert one from them, either.
However, does the same principle apply to animals? It surely doesn’t, right? Animals don’t use phones! What kind of ridiculous question is that?!
Well, you’d be surprised to learn that there’s actually a feline out there in northern Arizona with amazing photogenic abilities that have made him famous overnight.
Meet Manny, the Selfie Cat
His selfies can easily put all of us to shame!
Manny is a gorgeous gray tabby who one day stumbled upon his current humans and decided to stay with them. He lives with four other felines and four dogs, but two Rottweilers seem to be his most faithful companions.
Apparently, Manny thinks he’s one of the dogs and acts as though he’s the alpha of the pack. His owner, Yorem Ahm, said:
“He is the boss of the dogs.”
Manny enjoys going on adventures with his family and exploring the great outdoors of Arizona, which is probably where his love for photography came from.
However, what makes him unique is his fascination with his owner’s GoPro cameras! Any time he sees one, he reaches his little paws for it, attempting to take a photo. Yorem shared with ABC News:
“He is very curious, and whenever I take pics of my dogs, he basically ‘photobombs’ the camera and tries to take it from me.”
Manny simply adores taking selfies! And he’s pretty good at doing it, too. Honestly, I wish I could look this good in photos:
However, Manny doesn’t just photograph himself. He thinks about the whole gang, too!
Many people online have wondered how on Earth does Manny take those pictures. Unfortunately, that’s something that remains a secret to this day.
Nevertheless, Manny appears to always be camera-ready. So, at the end of the day, I think we can all agree that’s all that matters!
I encourage you to check out this amazing slideshow of some iconic Manny’s selfies.
