— -- A rescued gray Tabby cat from northern Arizona takes pretty impressive selfies. And he's become an Internet sensation, of course!

The fine-looking feline named Manny has been dubbed "Selfie Cat" after photos he apparently takes of himself using a GoPro have gone viral on his owner's Instagram.

Yorem Ahm, Manny's minion -- er, owner -- told ABC News he and his wife have four dogs and four cats, but Manny is "probably the most intelligent, inquisitive cat we've ever had."

The cat even knows how to FaceTime, according to this photo of him chatting with a donkey:

"He is very curious, and whenever I take pics of my dogs, he basically 'photobombs' the camera and tries to take it from me," Ahm said. However, how exactly "Selfie Cat" takes his photos is "a secret."

The not-so-camera-shy cat also "thinks he's a dog" and "loves people," Ahm added.

Judging from photos on Ahm's Instagram, it appears the cat is the alpha "dog" of the pack.

Manny was actually a stray cat that Ahm and his wife rescued about two years ago, he explained.

"He just showed up one day and hasn't left," Ahm said.

"Selfie Cat" has become "a little narcissistic" since discovering his newfound fame, but Ahm said he tries keep his feline friend grounded.

Ahm said that he personally thinks it's hilarious that people are getting a kick out of Manny's selfies. He added, "If people smile from him, that's even better."
