Wellington's cat-about-town Mittens is best-known for roaming the streets and wandering into public venues. His exploits are regularly shared on an almost-50,000-member Facebook group and have been featured on everything from The Guardian to The Taipei Times. Last month, Wellington Mayor Andy Foster awarded the feline celebrity the 'keys to the city' and a formal certificate.

Now, the ginger Turkish Angora is getting his own dedicated exhibition inside Wellington Museum. The mini-exhibition Mittens – Floofy and Famous will be on display at the museum from Saturday, 4 July to Sunday, 11 October offering a peek into Mittens' artistic inspiration, home life and general padding about town. Wellington Museum is calling the pawsome exhibit "a 'must-see' for Mittens lovers of all ages."
