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!)

While I'm on the subject of pets, I have a couple of things to mention before I end this post. The first being Elfriede's cat Gretchen that desperately needs a home.
I blogged the story of this adorable cat last Sunday (here). So far no one has expressed interest in being able to adopt her so I thought I'd give it another shot, because Elfriede and I are trying to avoid having this poor cat end up at the Humane Society. If anyone in the Ottawa area is able to give Gretchen a home, please email me @ email@example.com. Or if you have any suggestions of where Elfriede can take Gretchen to be fostered or whatever please email me or leave a comment.
I received a really sweet email from Michelle the other day, who has been in the design business for over twenty years, and happens to be a fantastic artist of pet portraits (and an animal lover). Check out her blog, Ispirato Design, where you'll find her design work as well as pet portaits. Here are a few I found that are sooooo cute:
