Selfies have evolved far beyond the silly pictures you take when no one's looking. They're now the preferred means of making announcements — be it a fresh haircut, a new relationship, or even the fact that you've survived a life-threatening accident
. In short, taking a snap of yourself has become a vital form of self expression in the modern age.

are paving the way for felines who want to document themselves, but are biologically incapable of doing so without opposable thumbs and whatnot.

of all time. Ahead, we've compiled 10 types of cat selfies that remind us of different snap-happy human stereotypes. Get your duckface on.
