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!)
Here are a couple of photos of Gladys, my rescued Maine Coon kitty, basking in the sunshine on her knitted pouf. She adopted me about two months ago, and her favorite thing to do during the day is follow the sun around our apartment.
- Wendy and Gladys (Oakland, CA)
This is Meahkay, a 12-year-old Sphinx who lives with my best friend Kim in San Diego. Meah is sitting on a red satin cushion with a heated towel (one gets cold with no fur) on a zebra-print slipper chair. Only the best for a princess!
1 - Our little guy loves anywhere with a higher view. Our 100 year old heritage has a ton of built-ins that we gave a fresh coat of glossy white.
2 - I think he spends more time on the couch than we do, this time curled up in my wool throw (it's still a bit chilly here on the west coast of Canada). I know what you're thinking - white couch and a black dog...but I just love white!
- Katrina (Vancouver, BC)
This is our cat - MegaCat - he is exceedingly fluffy and this red IKEA pouffe is one of his chosen spots. He arrived as a rescue kitten a year ago - with his mum Whiskers and brother Noah. They'll possibly be a bit jealous if his picture gets posted - so will no doubt be posing for their own photos before long!
- Tom (London)
Oscar & Bruno our boxer dogs, who are half-brothers, looking very comfortable on our bed...on our armchair.
- Louise (Lakeview, Nova Scotia)
This is a picture of my grandmother's lovely parker knoll chair, wonderfully comfortable for human and dog! The two velvet cushions are great to stroke and their bright colours enhance the colour of the chair and our blonde cocker spaniel called Honey!!
- Debbie (Amersham, London)
Dylan was a flea-ridden, scrawny golden retriever when I picked him from a shelter here two years ago. Now, he's healthy, loves his little brother (another rescue Daschund), and loves posing on furniture.
- Sathy (Bangalore, India)
