Do dogs and cats really appreciate fine art?
Do pets deserve dining with a view? Apparently the owner of one cat thinks so. After talking with a pet behavior consultant and researching colors pets can or can’t see, she had paintings commissioned so they could be hung just above pet dishes, figuring pets could enjoy them while they were eating breakfast or dinner. The artwork can also be placed nearby on a low easel.

You know where this is going, don’t you?

You got it. The paintings can now be purchased on-line (8”x10,” $140; 14”x11,” $195) at

Personally, I think paintings are way too classy for my cats, Tut and Newman. I just leave a stack of old Playboy magazines next to their litter boxes.
