If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 closeups of your pet!)
The picture I attached is of my cat Aslan (we call him our toy lion) resting on my $20 Craigslist dresser. He's so big, he almost stretches across the whole thing! Of course, he makes himself at home on every piece of furniture - he is my best decoration!

We are a rescue home and are suckers for Golden retrievers. Here ate some shots taken over the past couple months. Youngest is Bella that was in a crate for the first 10 months of her life until she found us and now she has the life!
1 - Elliot (Wirp), Oliver (Pants), myself and their sister Madi all shared a tiny 1 bedroom apartment in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle, WA. They were all VERY busy with the goings on of the hens that lived across the street that would break out of their pen. Almost daily, I will find both (HUGE) boys snuggled next to each other on this, my favorite green chair, or atop one of the many pieces of luggage I've collected.
2 - A tiny Elliot, aka Wirp stretched out atop of my old 1950's cream colored sofa.
3 - Elliot + Oliver sleeping on striped vintage bedsheets.
This is my cat, Wilma, on my daughter's hand-me-down table. (She had to leave it behind when she moved to Hawaii). Wilma randomly picks a spot for hanging out and today it was the coffee table.

Maria- the evil cat that turns into an angel when asleep.
This is my Burmese cat, Ellie, sitting next to a bunch of Australian natives on my Blackwood coffee table. She's clearly fascinated by the flame of the candle.
