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 closeups of your pet!)

Attached please find a photo of our beloved house mate, Stripey Cat, curled up in our bedroom. Stripey always seems to find the prettiest places to sleep - making sure the all surrounding colours match her stripes completely. Such a princess!

Here are a few pictures of Toby, our 16 ¾ year old Yorkshire Terrier – an old man now but still the light of our lives. Of course at his age he is allowed on all our furniture (although sadly can’t jump up any more) and can be seen here relaxing on our leather bean bag and resplendent on the cowhide lounger!

This is typically where I find our Persian cat, Daisy, when I leave and return from work each day.  She's sporting her annual lion haircut in this photo.

This is Elvis, the only one in the family who ever sits on our retro chair.

This is Yager, my 7 year old Ridgeback and Lab mix in Chicago.

Our greyhound Hawk cooling his lollies on our Dino Mark Anthony custom sofa. Hawk turns 10 on August 21. :-)

Here's my little Char Siu Bao (loosely translated to Barbecue Pork Buns) who is a 10 yo pekingese. I recently fostered her but just couldn't let her go. She has one eye, buck teeth but is super sweet.

Thank you so much for posting our beloved Stripey Cat in your Monday Pets on Furniture feature. All her (now infamous) Monday contemporaries are so adorable and heart meltingly cute, they all seem to share a splendid air of regality!

In case anyone is wondering where the Prime Minister's cats entry is, I have removed it. It seems I was plagiarizing.

Thank you for this post every week. It cheers me up deep inside to see how much people love their precious animals who share their lives. If everyone loved every animal they come in contact with this much, there wouldn't be animal cruelty.

Bless all these dear critters, their guardians, and YOU two, desiretoinspire.
