Cat bearding is the newest trending sensation among the feline-focused and selfie-centric. The intentional pet photobomb involves drawing the cat's attention upward (this is the hardest part, unless you have a laser pointer) and strategically placing your face behind it to achieve a full and fluffy cat beard.
