Selfie-taking cat Manny is boss of all dogs and king of Instagram

It’s finally happened – there is a selfie-taking cat and his name is Manny.

Manny is a grey tabby whose images have been circulating the internet due to his unusually strong selfie game. His owner, based somewhere in the US, posts the pictures he takes to Instagram under the handle @yoremahm. He or she, told Love Meow, the cat aficionado website, that Manny “is boss of all the dogs” and indeed it would seem so!

He is particularly fond and curious about his owner’s GoPro, and for this reason often reaches out and succeeds at taking his own photo, more often than not accompanied by his many pet friends, rottweilers and other dogs.

What is perhaps most hilarious about Manny’s photos is how human they seem, with fans of the account noting how he doesn’t do ‘double-chin selfies’ and seems to know his angles.

He also has no shame and loves to photobomb!
