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!)

"Hi, this is my British Shorthair Mason sitting on my a chair of mine. It's tough to get his hairs off the furniture, but he's so stylish up there that I don't mind it. His coat goes well with my grayscale Lego Beatles, and his eyes match the golden pillow and lampshade."
- Benjamen (Seattle)....more pics of his place on Apartment Therapy and his blog

"I'd like to contribute a couple of photos of our Norwegian forest cat Kharma. Our Spanish leather dining chairs are perfectly curved to qualify as a favourite spot (contrary to most cats, Kharma is not too fond of soft furnishings...). If our outdoors roof staircase can count as 'furniture', that's another favourite..."
- Rebecka (Stockholm, Sweden)...check out photos of her AMAAAAAZING home on her blog)

"Here is a picture of Moses my rescue from Katrina on his plush dog bed which is hidden under a TJ Maxx treasure I found!"
- Michelle (Virginia Beach, VA)

"Our boys and girl enjoy their lounging time on a resurrected sleeper sofa... I made the linen slipcover to ease clean up of puppy prints and any body fluids which might escape.
Left to right: Mustachie (moose stash ee), Chachi and Telulah Bell. The dogs are sweet Havanese.
- Alice and Erin (Chelsea, Michigan)

"The first picture is of our dog Ziggy on the couch. We think she is a Pit-Bull / Boston Terrier mix (we rescued her when she was about 6 months old, so we don't know for sure). She is almost 3 now. The couch was a lucky craigslist find, and the pillows are from Anthropologie, Target and Urban Outfitters. The second picture is of Ziggy and one of our cats, Maynard on our king-sized bed. The duvet is from Target and the lamp is from Ikea. Maynard was also a rescue and has a lot of personality."
- Amy and Jake (Tampa, Fl)

"Here is our dog Oscar on our favorite vintage chair, he loves to pose for the camera, and yes that is him in the picture up on the wall."
- Erin (Philadelphia, PA)

"Attached is a picture of my dachshund, Arnie, lounging on her favorite ottoman."
- Ashley (Tampa, Florida)

"This is Buckley. I got a new little white cupboard at a garage sale and he stuck to it like glue all night. And I'm sending you a couple pictures of him with other garage sale finds, just so you can see him better."
- Phyllis

And because I didn't get as many entries as I usually do for today's post, I thought I'd sneak in one of some of my herd. This photo was taken a while back - it's Felix and Lucky (the 2 fatties) on my Ikea baby changetable hack that is STILL most of my 7 cats' favourite place to have a snooze.

Okay, the picture Buckley in that white cabinet is A-mazing (and kinda creepy). I cannot stop laughing at it.

Loving Michelle's side chairs (and Moses of course!). I just snagged two of them myself at HomeGoods for a bargain! Great post :)

Even as someone who has had a pet photo in printed in "Pets on Furniture", this maybe the BEST collection of photos you have printed to date!

Kim, you won't believe this! The Spanish leather dining chair that Kharma (the Swedish cat) is lounging on is exactly the chair we just got in from Spain!!

Deborah - what a coincidence!!! That chair is fantastic! (Believe me when I say I've been trying very hard to find time to get out to your shop to check out your fab new pieces but have been so freaking busy!)

No worries, Kim! All our new stuff will be there, whenever you get over. That chair isn't even out on the floor yet! Deborah

Jen, I did say I took that photo a while back. I guess it was a LOOOONG while. :)

That Buckley kitty looks just like our cat, Chilli Willy! Where is the owner located? I swear they could have been litter mates!

20 Sep 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea S.

Some great rooms! The first is gorgeous and you hardly even notice the cat!

And i love those coral chairs.

Moses is my fav this week, but they all look too cute sitting on the furniture.

Thanks for featuring my Arnie! I can't help but feeling like she fits right in with all of these other adorable pets! :-)
