Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. (Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it). And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"i'm pretty sure bert loves my bed more than he loves me."
- Ann (Boston, MA)

"This is our 19 year old cat Ollie making himself at home amongst our cushions. The clicking camera woke him up and he wasn't very happy!"
- Sara (Manchester, England)

"I just bought a small apartment in the centre of Amsterdam and a small kitten to accompany it. Here you see 4 month old Billie relaxing on the arm rest of one of the two Exquis chairs (a brand apparently unknown on the internet) I bought from marketplace (the Dutch craiglist)."
- Alex

"This is Chairman Meow next to a Kartell unit and on a window seat. This picture was taken for a post on Come Over Sunday and is owned and much loved by James and Leila who live in Marrickville Sydney."
- Rachel

"These are my 3 cats: Aldo, who is an 18-year old stray Siamese that jumped into my arms on a rainy day on the street; Chaplin, the tuxedo and Artos, the orange cat; both of them rescues, also. Aldo has recently discovered the cubbyhole that I cut into the sideboard. The sideboard/chest used to be a mid-century music cabinet, which I found on the curb. I gutted the interior and where the speakers used to be, cut out a hole and lined it with fleece. It makes for a little cat-cave and my cats take turns to claim it. I recently painted the walls with stripes and adding the key-collection to make the entry-hall look like a curio-cabinet."
- Astrid (New York)

"This a photo from one of our commercial photo but our little Lagotto puppy Ramon who always want to be in center of attention choose to take a little nap during set. The photographer found him sleeping after a break and as you understand this in now our favorite."
- Edin & Lina

"just had to share a pic of our labradoodle with you ... her name is Amici ( a- mee- chee ) ... she has a coat as long as your pooch but I've just cut her with a pair of humans hair clippers :-) ... it sort of worked ! ... we have another Labradoodle too ... a big cream colour one  called Marcello ... but he's the good dog ... he doesn't sit on the furniture !"
- Steph (Queensland)

"I love my vintage chair and my cat who is always hungry. I'm sure he was also when I was taking this picture.."
- Marta (Cracow, Poland)

"This is Bailey, at night she often disappears into other rooms in our house.  I can usually find her on the couch in the living room or snuggling up in the guest room.  She also likes to rearrange blankets and pillows to suit her comfort."
- Meghan (Philadelphia, PA)

"Here are two pictures of my chihuahuas Lilly (tan) and Miloh (black and white). They are perched in their favorite spot in the formal living room at my parent's house."
- Hannah (Connecticut)

"This is a picture of our 1 and a half year old cat Duffy sitting on a marble top side table.  He really thinks he owns the place.  And I'm starting to think it's true..."
- Claire (Toronto, On)

Such a cute idea, we JUST got 2 kittens, so I will have to take some photos to add! Thanks for the great idea! *Amy

Best compilation! Sleeping Ollie and Not So Happy Awake Ollie is extremely cute!

Love this site, but I have to say I'm not a big fan of the "pets on furniture" posts.

Oh, I love 'em. My favorites make it into my rotating Windows desktop background slideshow. Thank you, all, for sharing. You brighten my Mondays.

So gorgeous as usual!
Hi to Amici who I met via email this week! Go Labradoodles :)

I think we can all see why Aldo jumped into Astrid's arms! Cats . . . they have a finely honed ability to spot us pushovers!

I wasn't a huge fan of the pets on furniture posts until I got 2 cats. Now I can't wait for Mondays!

PS- I love Ollie the cat! So sweet.

OMG the cats in the cabinet photo is too funny!!!

I guess you need to be a cat fan to enjoy these posts. Yuck!

Lovely! Just love all of these pictures! I have a cat myself, and of course she sleeps on my furniture or in my bed. *cathair* :-)

What a great idea! I just wrote a post about allergens in the home, and suggested keeping the dogs and cats off the bed to prevent allergic reactions. BUT, pets are also such a part of the family that it's hard to tell them no! And these pictures clearly show why that's the case, thanks!

lol! This feature cracks me up...especially the fluffy labradoodle on the leather couch! Thanks for putting a smile on my face :0) Blessings, Katy

I love the cat pictures! So cute!
Wow and an 18 year old Siamese! I wonder what his diet is? What's his catfood?

It's Friday and I realized I forgot to look at this Monday's pet's on furniture! Thank goodness for archives. "Awake" Ollie cracked me up and I still get a giggle fit every few minutes. He looks like me this morning! Thanks so much for the posts and a big behind-the-ear scratch for Ollie!
