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 firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!
Here's our very sweet Moonshadow lounging on our IKEA Karlstad sectional, with an IKEA Hemnes Bookshelf in the background. We rescued her from a pile of leaves on a chilly November day, along with her brother, when she weighed just 12 ounces! Their mom was nowhere to be found and I couldn't bare to watch them shiver any longer. We were NOT what you'd consider to be "cat people" by any means but she stole my heart and we've loved kitties ever since.
This is Charlie...and around our house...he is a hero...read here...What with saving my life and all, we had to make amendments to the "no pets on the sofa" RULE (we have 3 dogs and 3 cats) and now, we have abandoned the rule all together and just keep blankets on the sofas. I had removed the blanket from THIS sofa, to take some Blog Photos, and when I went to change my camera lens, and turned around...."CHARLIE!" but seriously...look at the face...could you tell him to get down?

Zuni & Banjo doing what they do best…

This is Isabela, a french bulldog of four years old, in her favourite corner on the sofa...and Isabela, in an english chair.

And because there weren't as many entries as usual this week, I thought I'd add in one of mine I found on my phone.
This is Phoebe, curled up in a basket (where I stash plastic bags) on top of my pantry. There's a tall scratching post structure to the left of the pantry which provides the agile cats access up there.
