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...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 can be sent to email@example.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!!!)

"My dog Oliver, taking a nap."
"I was playing around with my camera this weekend trying to document my living room for my blog (before I change up stuff for the 10,000th time :-), and I happend to take this shot. My photography skills are limited to point and shoot, but I managed to capture my cat Charlie resting on one of my favourite pieces of furniture - my grandma's retro armchair. Charlie loves to snooze up there, while keeping an eye on the turmoil of the street below..."

"Cletus knows she is not supposed to be on the couch. This particular couch is in my front room, the "Cat Free Zone", but sometimes I forget to close the door and I just know that she will be in there curled in a ball, pretending that I can't see her snoozing. In this pic she knows she's been caught! Sometimes she gets evicted but if she looks at me cute enough.. she gets to stay until Dad gets home."

"My husband and I adopted 8 year-old Whiskey from a shelter a year ago, and he's 17 lbs of fluffy love! This week he discovered the comforts of sleeping on the back of the living room chair. I bought the pillow case on a business trip to Africa, and it is hand-painted."

"Hi, this is Gala, my 2 year old Himalayan. We are from Lima, Perú. Gala loves to rest and play on the top of my computer´s chair... even when I´m working!"
"My kitty sitting on my bed...hope this isn't too much of a closeup. I just really like these pillows :)"
"This is my golden retriever Ella! We live in Manaus, right beside the amazon rainforest.She thinks that every fluffy place in the house belongs to her."
