What could be better to end a week than an entire event dedicated to cutesy cats and pets?

Catopia will be held at Our Tampines Hub this weekend (Feb 11- Feb 12) between 11 am - 6 pm, at the B1 Festive Atrium and Market.

One of the highlights for this year is pet portrait offerings by two artists, Melissa Tan from Paintinks by melt and Candice Phang from Puffing Muffin from 3 - 6 pm.

Both artists are known for their cute and colourful art, with animals as the subject of their creative expression.

Check out Tan's and Phang's cute drawings as a sampling of what's to come:

If you're coming along with a furry friend, make sure your pets are comfortable with the great outdoors and are harnessed and leashed (including cats) and brought in via the escalator between the Hawker Centre and Central Plaza.

If you don't have a pet, you can still fully enjoy what the event has to offer, with pop-up shops selling related merchandise like Dulcetfig, Goood Collars and MyItchyFingers.

An adoption drive will also be held for those interested in giving cats a forever home.

Have a pawsome outing!
