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 firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"My friend Meg's beloved dogs - Iggy and Cha Cha"
"Attached are 2 photos of my baby Lucille. She is about 3 years old (but looks really little still) and she, like most cats, sleeps all day long on various pieces of furniture. I'm pretty sure she was raised by a dog since I frequently catch her drinking out of the toilet bowl and begging for (and stealing) food from the dinner table. Needless to say she is a character. The first picture is her curled up on the couch with remote in hand. Not really showcasing the furniture but you can see her face well, and the second is her on what she would probably refer to as her bed, where she sleeps for about 8 hours a day."
