When Yoren Ahm launched his Instagram page in 2013, his subjects were usually his own dogs or animals he witnessed in nature.
But when an adorable gray tabby cat taking “selfies” suddenly appeared on his page, a new star was born.
This surprise star was Manny, Yolem’s newly adopted shelter cat.

Manny was actually a stray cat who popped into the Yolem’s home.
From the looks of him, it was obvious that he needed a place to stay, so the couple welcomed him into their home.
In fact, Manny made the decision.
Manny just showed up one day and didn’t leave,” the Yolems told ABC News.

After a few photo shoots, Yolem noticed that Manny liked to be in the spotlight.

Yolem described Manny as “the smartest and most curious cat I’ve ever had.”
But it was at a very special moment that the couple realized how smart Manny really was.

One day, Yolem took his dog and Manny to a photo shoot.
The shoot was no different than usual, but this time something special happened.
One day, Manny reached out and touched the camera during the shoot and accidentally learned how to use it,” Yolem says.
The resulting photo looks like Manny is taking a selfie with his dog!
When Yolem saw the photo, he couldn’t help but laugh.
