History was made earlier this week when six superstar felines bandied together to snap the ultimate cat selfie. With finicky egos briefly put to one side, Lil BUB, Princess Monster Truck, Venus, Oskar the Blind Cat, Klaus, and Waffles posed proudly to enter the record books. (The stunt was inspired by a newly designed can of mike’s HARDER featuring the visage of Waffles.) Here’s a step-by-step recap of the momentous event.

In consideration of the rampant kitty egos that were present on the set, a lavish spread was offered up to pander to the cats.

Nevertheless, that didn’t stop many of them acting up, including Klaus and Oskar who collectively requested $400,000 for warm milk. It was said the demand was non-negotiable and must take the form of used bills.

A diva at heart, Princess Monster Truck also refused to leave the luxurious safety of her dressing room for much of the shoot.

“Just being in the room with all that star power, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever felt,” recalled Colin Stutton, the director of photography for the high-powered selfie shoot.

Still, once the early tantrums had passed, the cats teamed up to pose for the cameras in a totally professional manner.

The resulting selfie is said to feature the most amount of feline Internet fame ever assembled in the same place at the same time.
