1. Two words: Laser. Pointer.

Nothing gets a cat's attention quite like a WHOA WHERE'D THE MAGIC RED DOT GO.

2. Dangle. Dangle like your life depends on it.

Motivation looks and tastes a lot like a catnip mouse.

3. Compliment the heck out of your cat.

Some suggestions:

"Have you done something with your, um, fur?"

"Your whisker game is on point today, Socks."

"Have I ever told you that you look like a young Nyan Cat?"

4. Be sure to pick the right backdrop.

To take a selfie while napping in a sunbeam or to take a selfie when not napping in a sunbeam. #thestruggleisreal

5. And the right accessories.

Everything's better with a teeny hat.

6. Beware photobombs from jealous pets.

"DARN IT, FIDO, THEY'RE NOT CALLED DOGSIES, AND YOU KNOW IT."

7. Find the right angle.

Selfies taken inside a cardboard box > selfies taken outside of a cardboard box.

8. Pick the perfect filter.

Mewfair, Ameowro, Earlypurr'd — a carefully selected filter adds an extra layer of sophistication that can really make your catsie pop.

9. And the right hashtags.

Pro Tip: This might go a little bit faster if someone with thumbs does the hashtagging.

10. Then sit back and watch the likes roll in.

Annnnd now your cat is Internet Famous. That wasn't so hard, was it?
