To be honest, I never understood the selfie craze. I mean, I get that it can be a fun way to take a group photo sometimes, but taking selfies over and over just didn’t resonate with me. Also, I prefer those photos in which the person who takes the shot catches me in some spontaneous pose. I am really bad at posing for a photograph. However, there are many people out there who enjoy selfies, and there are also many cats who like to strike a pose. But not all cats like selfies, as you will see in this article.
Not this again…
This cat is obviously not impressed. My guess is that this is the 152nd try, and that the girl in the photo is a bit of a perfectionist. The cat, obviously, is not. He just wants to be done with it, so he can go and take a nap on the couch. I get you, my friend, I totally get you. This is how I look when my mom wants to take a selfie with me. I smile for the first few tries, and then I just give up and wait for the torture to end.

Nooo, get that phone out of my face!
It is well-known that some tribes believed that cameras steal your soul and they refused to get their picture taken by it. This cat is obviously a big believer in this theory, since that is the only way to explain the terrified look on his face. Either that, or he was just informed that the final season of Game of Thrones will probably not be aired before 2019. I know it because I reacted the same way.

I said I don’t want a selfie
Sometimes, people will insist to take a selfie with you even though you don’t really want to do it. This cat is determined to prove his point so he chose to hide from the camera. He is also probably not a big fan of those ugly Christmas sweaters and just doesn’t want his picture taken with that sweater in the shot. He is truly a cat who sticks to his principles.

I’m smiling, this is it!
Some people and some animals, obviously, are just not photogenic and can never take a good picture. This cat is trying hard to put on a charming smile, but it just isn’t his strong suit. This is how I looked like in my graduation photo. And in my yearbook photos. This is how my wedding picture might look like as well, probably.

I’ve had enough of you, hooman!
This guy warned the girl too many times that he doesn’t want to take selfies and simply had to take action. This photo also sums up cats and their behavior to the point – they are usually sweet and cute, but they can be a bit of jerks as well.

Ugh, here we go again
This cat is my spirit animal. This is how I react to taking a selfie as well – I just give up and go on with it. This cat is obviously not a fan of confrontations like some previous cats on my list. He understands that it is easier to just take a selfie and not complain about it. However, that doesn’t mean that he has to be happy about it, which this photo clearly shows.

Grow up, hooman
Yes, this is not a selfie, but this photo is just so damn cute that I had to include it on my list. It just shows perfectly how my cat would react if I was obsessed with taking his picture. Luckily for him, I feel the same way, which is why I only have a few photos of him. All of them I took while he was sleeping, of course. I don’t want to get this look from him as well.

Is that a cookie on the ceiling?
Taking a selfie can be a traumatic experience for some cats. Take this cat for example. He was ready for his selfie, but then he spotted something on the ceiling. Perhaps it was a big spider, or maybe a strange shadow, but it definitely got his attention. Now this photo is getting shared all over the Internet and people are laughing at him. Sorry cat, I laughed too.

You just laugh, I’ll get you one day
This cat is obviously thinking of revenge. You can actually see that he is coming up with different scenarios to punish his hooman, and I just know none of them will be pleasant. The girl better be careful, or she might end up like the girl we saw before, attacked during a selfie.

I will destroy this camera!
Rather than accepting the “if you can’t win them, join them” attitude that many cats from our list showed, this furious feline tried to destroy the camera and be done with all the selfies forever. I am not sure whether he succeeded in his plan, but I give my kudos for trying. Good job.

Leave me alone, witches!
Taking a picture with two pretty girls is a dream come true for most men, but it is not really such an attractive idea for animals I guess. This cat seems possessed by a demon in this photo, so it is safe to assume that he doesn’t like taking selfies at all, or being kissed publicly. Also, the girl on the right looks a lot like Amy Adams, so in this particular case, I strongly oppose to the cat’s reaction. I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a selfie with Amy Adams lookalike?

Don’t goof around, hooman
I actually love this selfie since it looks like the cat is holding the phone. However, the cat doesn’t seem so enthusiastic about it. He either doesn’t like taking selfies, or he is just disappointed by the girl’s behavior because he wanted a nice photo and not a goofy one.
