Monday's pets on furniture - part 1

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. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

This is Tigre, my 1 year old Bengal. He follows me around the apartment and gets his curious little self into just about everything; including my photographs :).
- Marie-Louise (Vancouver, BC)

I'm sending the picture of my cat Feio (it means "ugly" in brazilian portuguese) he's a lovely, fluffy gentle old fat guy with just one full function eye, one ill leg and a huge need for love. I adopted him about 3 years ago and I think he is about 13-14 years old right now. He almost doesn't get to climb furniture because of his leg, but he absolutely loves sunbathing in my set of white poufs. It is the one thing, other than my lap, that he thinks it's worth the effort.
- Karine (Porto Alegre - Brazil)

Here's a sweet picture or our greatly missed Mainecoon kitty cat, Kennedy, lounging in an Overman pod chair which he adopted immediately upon it's arrival in the house! We had to let him go to pussy cat heaven Jan 8 2011. You can see a little tribute video I made in his honor here. We still miss him dearly. He was such a character and such a good kitty cat. The Overman pod chair has also moved on to a new owner in New Orleans.
- Mr. Modtomic (St. Louis Missouri)

This is out exotic shorthair kitten, Mia. She makes herself at home anywhere including on my vintage sleepy hollow chair that was my grandparent's.

Clyde lounging on his favorite orange throw with a mural of George Nelson in the background. He's a bit of a design snob. But then, he lives in The Hamptons, NY.

I enclose a photo of my two beloved girls, Mafy and Lalit enjoying an early spring afternoon, each on her own titanic chair in my garden in Padova, Northern Italy.

Bubosha sleeps on the bed. Only.

Dedicated to Kennedy:

Walk Slowly
by Adelaide Love

If you should go before me, dear, walk slowly
Down the ways of death, well-worn and wide,
For I would want to overtake you quickly
And seek the journey’s ending by your side.

I would be so forlorn not to descry you
Down some shining highroad when I came,
Walk slowly, dear, and often look behind you
And pause to hear if someone calls your name.

The poem is wonderful. Thnx so much for sharing. And Feio is a real beauty on his puff for my ill leg, I adore design of that kind!!

Tanx Amina and Paul!
Feio is right here sending some lovin' to you! =^.^=
And the puffs they are really awesome, they make a perfect scale for him and plus, they fit into each other when space is needed.
