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!)
First up is a pet entry that is very dear to me. Wanda, the angel that took in the homeless cat (now named Desi, last update of her was here) my husband and I were taking care of over the winter, sent me some videos and some fantastic photos of Desi. Here are the pics and a video is here on my page.
Here is Desi laying around, first on my bed which she loves and then on the sofa next to the window, where she watches the squirrels outside. She is the most adorable little cat.

Here is a pic of my 11 month old Weimaraner/Lab mix Lucy looking very serious on our living room sofa.
Here is Callie, my corgi/jack russell mix posing on a Moroccon pouf - she's quite the little ham and I'd say she has pretty good taste.

I very happily live in Arequipa Perú with three dogs. This the the big one, Avilés, a street dog before we became friends and he moved in. The photo is of a small corner of the house where my tiny office is. I included the chair but omitted the desk because my 27" Cinema Display (which is actually larger than the desk!) would make it look like an Apple ad.
This is my lovely manx cat Tobi lounging in his two favorite places. I think he enjoys the warmth the sunshine brings to the spot within the living room. He is resting on a re-covered hotel chair and our large shadowbox table.

This is Fonzi. We adopted him from our local shelter and things have never been the same since. We can usually find him lounging on our bed, but he recently discovered that he could sit on the patio and watch the world go by! :)
- Lindsey (California)
You've featured my kitties on your lovely blog before, here are some more recent pics you may want to post.
I have moved to a new house recently, what was a big surprise for my two cats, Cyryl and Kornelia. After few weeks, Cyryl definetely has found his place on earth in the new address, occupying an old, white dresser. Here he is!
- Kasia (Poland)
This is my lovely rescued cat, Sqeek, so called because that's the noise she makes instead of meowing. When not curled up in my mother's favorite basket cuddling her Beetles pillow, she's snoozing on my mustard 'ugly' armchair, also rescued from a skip in New York city.

Maya loves the new chair, and the blanket is perfect camouflage.
