A pet food company in Singapore has opened an interactive art exhibition designed specifically for animals.

The PAW-sitive exhibition, which opened to dogs and cats on Saturday, featured installations designed to encourage pet owners to “think about the totality of their pets’ well-being (mind, body andsoul), beyond just providing good nutrition during meal times”.

Ten installations have been created by local artists in conjunction with vets and animal behaviourists, including one named In The Cat’s Belly by Kelly Limerick and Doggyland by Joceline Chew, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Singapore’s most popular natural pet food brand, Wellness.
