Which Snapchat filters work on cats?
Several filters work on the cats unlike before. The photo filters for your cat include decorating your pet with hats, glasses and slices of bread. The filters can make it look like your cat is wearing glasses, or has devil horns, flower crown, other animals' ears and much more.
The photo-messaging application, snapchat, released this statement on Twitter saying, 'lenses for cool cats and their cool cats. Try them meow'. Since then, the world of memes has never been the same.
It was trending back in 2018 and its trending again. So there you have it, what you need to do to trend is release a cat with hilarious filters on it. The Snapchat filters for cats 2019 are so creative.
How do you use the filters on your cat or pet?
Well, snapchat has made this very easy for you. To use the filters, you need to focus the snapchat cat lenses on your app on the animals face. Once this is done, click on the face of your pet and then it will bring lens options for you at the bottom of the screen. Click the lens option that has a paw on it, and you can get a filter on almost all kinds of pets.
How did the trend start?
On October 3rd, a user on Twitter who goes by the username 'Esme', posted a video of her cat and the tweet exploded. In just a few days of being on Twitter, it has over 4.5 million views!
Before putting filters on the cat, it looks like such an elegant lady. After the filters though, its a whole other story. The face scrunching filters make her 'cat' look so comical. See the before and after pictures below.
Esme's cat, called 'ket' is quite gorgeous.
Once the filter was on though, the whole game changed. Ket ended up looking like she has a crushed face or she was a cat from a science fiction movie that has been exposed to radioactive material. If you are a cat lover, there is no way you won't want to see this.
