Cat selfies? They’re a thing now, thanks to the new Candid Catmera app, created by Current Studios. This app not only allows your cat to take selfies, but it also raises money for a very worthwhile cause – the SPCA.

The Candid Catmera app features feline facial recognition technology, allowing your cell phone to detect your cat’s face and focus when taking a photo. The app plays animations of mice, fish, and treats, which are designed to catch your cat’s attention and lure your cat toward your phone. Your phone (or ipad) takes a photo when there’s motion. If the phone has captured a cat selfie, it will send you a message to let you know so you can then upload the photo to your social media accounts – or your cat’s social media accounts, if he has them.

So, will we see cat selfies taking over the internet in the future? It’s very possible. The Candid Catmera app is available for purchase for $1.99, and $1 of every sale will be donated to the SPCA.

Will you be giving this app a try? It just might be a great way to capture some unusual photos of your cat, and is certainly a must for any cat aiming for social media fame.
