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!)
This is Lola, my 5 year old Maine Coon sitting in our second bedroom/office. Her facial expression is the exact reason she's earned the nickname "sassy".

This is my 5-year-old cat Wilfred on our table. It's his favourite place to eat, because he's half-cat, half-human.

When a footstool becomes a cozy bed. This is Pietra at our home.

In the photo(s), Milo is sleeping on our living room couch. He likes getting up on top of the couch to catch the afternoon sun coming in from the window. The pillows on the couch are handmade by me in Lotta Jansdotter's new line of fabric.

Here's Miss Kitty on my green velvet armchair. I use scarves to add some richness. Here, a faux fur wrap and a neutral tribal print scarf.

This is my cute parrot Paco, he is a "loro de cabeza roja", a great little personality, always curious and adventurous. He loves to fly around and explore everything..

These are our cats Charly and Peach on our living room couch, which is draped with a rug we found while traveling in Peru last summer.

I wanted to send along a snap of my boxer/American bulldog, T-Rex all cozied up on my vintage couch during a snowstorm.
The sofa in our living room belongs to our Standard Poodle (as you can see by the enclosed pics), Cesar, and this is where he loves to relax.
The picture of my cat, Bisoux, is one of my favorites too.
- Dori (Pembroke Pines, Florida)
These are 3 of my six cats (Happy, Spotty & Fatso) on a Scanteak sofa and Fatso on the same sofa and on a Scanteak bed. Happy left me suddenly last year. Fatso was born in France. Spotty is the baby in the family.

This is Diego, oblivious to exam season, asleep on our thrift store papasan chair, replete with bargain bin pillows.

Our dog Elliot, a 4 year old Korean Jindo, sitting on her favourite stool in her favourite room; our sunporch on the back of our 100 year old farm house.
Our cat, Pipes, joining Elliot in the sunporch.

On a side note: I've been dealing with some cat drama for a few months now, with new developments on Saturday (hopefully it will all work out in the end). Read about it here.
