Even Social Media platforms know that more than ever, pets are people too. Social Media Story Teller Snapchat has recognized that with the introduction of new ‘cat’ selfie lenses.

I admit that half the time I use Snapchat (okay, most of the time), it’s for the fun filters and lenses. But now Snapchat has taken those one step further and included furry family members in the fun.

They’ve introduced lenses just for cats, and c’mon, let’s be honest…who doesn’t want pictures of their cats wearing the coolest glasses?

In a Tweet, the company shared that the new lenses were for cool cats and their cool cats, and they also shared several of the new filters that included flower crowns, animal ears and of course, unicorn horns.

Lenses. For cool cats 😎 and their cool cats 😻 Try them meow.

Because no picture is complete without a cat in a unicorn horn, amirite?

Kaže Snapchat: Try with your cat.

Ja: Okej.

Was not disappointed.

Filter creator Chris Higa said that the filters on the app have previously worked only on humans or dogs (um, sort of one in the same, right?) but now cat lovers can rejoice because their feline friends can get in on the filter frenzy too.

Users have responded well, as would be expected for such a monumental rollout, and the paw icon has been seen all over the web in what we have to admit are some pretty fantabulous kitteh pics.

No surprise since Mars Petcare claims that the average cat owner likes nearly 400-cat related posts looks at or watches 725 cat pictures and videos in a year.

Sounds like Snapchat realized they needed to go ‘paws’ in on that cat action!
