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!)

"Here's BooBoo, my cat in my old living room on her favorite spot."
- Yvonne (Lommel, Belgium)

"Layla enjoys laying on the couch and watching people walk past (and long walks on the beach and sunset picnics)."
- Caity (Pittsburgh, PA)

"This is my dog Elvis helping me with my mornings work"
- Mandy

"I've attached three pics. Two of our cat Ferris, who is a 6 year old Maine Coon. He's ginormous- we call him Gigante or Lion. He loves to sit near you, but not with you. Hence why he loves to sit on our coffee table in the living room. Huck Finn, our six year old mutt dog, loves to sit any where comfortable- usually between my husband and I. The last two pics are from when I was taking pictures of our new bedding, Ferris came and sat on the bed looking like the huge lion he is. The last picture is of Huck showing off his Molly Mutt bed. He loves it, but he was being a bit shy in front of the camera."
- Karen and Jeremy (San Francisco)

"Here's a photo of our two dogs, Fran (with the ears) and Lucy (the gorgeous blonde) - who love to lounge on our leather ottoman in our front room which faces the street. We call it The Throne."
- Tracey (Denver, CO)

"I've enclosed a picture of our cat, Leon, sitting in his favorite spot, the windowseat in our sunroom, on this little carpet with cats on it. We've had a great summer in Boston so he's spent most of his afternoons right there. He likes to look out the window and wait for his friend, another cat next door, to sit in her window, and then they look at each other for awhile. It's so cute."
- Elizabeth

"Our four-legged, fluffy child, Sadie, thinks our living room couch is in fact hers. If you try and sit down while she's stretched out, she won't move an inch to accommodate you."
- Beth (Santa Monica, CA)

"This is my lovely pup Remy relaxing on my vintage chair."
- Jessica (Denton, TX)

"Here are my two fellas. The first is of Mr. Kitty sitting on a quilt that my great-grandmother made, next to my grandparents' drum table, and below an enlarged copy of an envelope that my grandfather sent my grandmother during WWII. The second incudes Smokey Joe. I guess he felt left out after he saw me snapping away at Mr. Kitty."
- Celia (Tennessee)

"I had already the great happiness to see a picture of one of my cats, Bijou, in the site, along with other wonderful pets. It was really great! This time I send you the younguest of my four beauties: Chico. I adopted him in december, 2009. Hes like a brazilian hurricane....rs... Since his arrival, everything turned upside down! He loves to climb (and sometimes destroy...) the furniture and there is no place that Chico can't reach. Here, we see him in a rare moment of rest, on the top of a small provencal table, leaned on a tin white lantern that I like very much."
- Ana

"this is my friend Sheila's cat, relaxing on a nice expensive leather couch!"
- Mark

"Mouse says 'Yes, this great big chair is just about the right size for me!' You can see the other cat in the back ground - Mouse won't share that huge chair with her!! She is a bit naughty and possessive, lucky Mischa is such an obligingly delightful 'sister'. They are only 6 months old."
- Ingrid

"As I realized that you have this weekly contest about nice pets on furniture I thought I should grab my chance and send you a pic of my dog Cesi (orginally Cesar, a Pekingese crossbreed) sitting on my IKEA Klippan couch given to me by my boss..."
- Linda (Germany)

"Gato (cat) 'Fuscas'. He is asleep. It is a very hot summer day."
- Giselda (Funchal, Madeira, Portugal)

Karen & Jeremy: where is that beautiful bedding from?? I especially love the floral pillowcases. They look like my vintage ones, only with more vibrancy. :)
And, Tracey: Fran, your shepherd, is so adorable!!

I'd love to know where the bedding came from as well! And Celia, how did you get an enlarged copy of the vintage envelope? Is it a blown up photo? It's a great piece of art!

Where can I find the cute blue bedside clock that is located in the picture with Ferris & Huck Finn? I have been looking for a bedside clock that has minimal light distraction but is also very chic.

CassiMO - thanks so much! Frannie really is super adorable! She's only 45 pounds...she's like a mini shepherd. Rescue dogs are the best!!!!

As always, all the pets are cute, but I have a say that Remy & Elvis are the cutest.

Oh Pets on Furniture! This satisfies both the animal lover in me, and the voyeur. I love seeing the original things people do to decorate their homes like the deer with the ciggie, or the enlarged envelope. I love to see real spaces and how creative people can be, original decor and artwork, etc. So very cool! Thanks to posters & DTI!

Love BooBoo and her room!! Very soft colors with shabby chic flavor-- but trim, with no puddles of fabric everywhere! And I could scoop up BooBoo in a heartbeat!!!

Ingrid, Mouse and Mischa are adorable, but what intrigues me is the room, or is it a garden? or a mural of a garden? or a garden in the room?
