Have there been studies to determine how dogs and cats admire art? Any
images available?

Thank-you

If TV is art then our cats adore it. Our dogs on the other hand couldn't
care less.

I think you'd first have to determine whether or not they are
capable of feeling admiration.

Yes, I've seen that book. But it in no way answers my question.

My one cat loves to lay on the bed and watch TV shows with lots of action.
The motion catches her eye I guess.

Cats do not admire art, they consider themselves art to be admired.

O ick. And I mean that on several levels.

Believe it or not; public libraries have a subject classification
"Animals as Artists" under Dewey Decimal call numbers 741, 750, 599
(no, these don't all include books about elephants that paint). Why
Cats Paint had the call number 750.

Have there been any university studies attempting to discern what arts
pique our pets interests?
