Before I get started on today's pets on furniture, I wanted to share this photo of my stray cat Agnes I rescued last week. This was taken about 15 minutes after I brought her to her new home. She wandered around the apartment sniffing every nook and cranny, then hopped on the bed and decided to have a nap. I am so happy she didn't have to spend any more time cooped up in my bathroom and her new owner Jasmine is going to take really good care of, including getting all the surgeries done on her she needs ASAP, which will likely cost around $1200. I have donated all I can and I have received a few donations from some very kind folks (thank you all!!!) but it barely covers the surgeries so if you are able to make a donation I would be SOOOO grateful - Jasmine (who works for a non-profit org) was so kind to take this cat in I feel terrible that Agnes comes with such a hefty bill. You can send me a bank transfer if you're in Canada, or Paypal me at kim_j92[at]hotmail[dot]com. Thank you :)
****UPDATE: A HUGE thank you to all those who sent in donations yesterday. I am over-the-moon excited - it looks like I have enough (or close) to cover what I guessed Agnes' surgeries would cost. You guys are awesome!
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, if the photo is too dark or unfocused then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[at]hotmail[dot]com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

As we celebrate her first birthday, we're reminiscing about Boden's naughty first months at home. Thankfully, she no longer climbs on tables!
2013 was a long year, no less because i spent it without a dog. your weekly pet posts perked up my spirits regularly; so in return i offer a photo of my recent rescue, didot. she much prefers any recently vacated place on furniture that is still warm [despite not being allowed on furniture, or that i have made her 3 dog beds of her own]. this particular spot happens to be a trusty ikea karlstad with DIY pillows and a wall hanging i made out of recycled t-shirts and the like.

I was actually taking a picture of my new little fireplace, but Libby had another idea.

This is my lovely dog Sophie on our IKEA sofa. She is one of five animals in our house (located in Michigan) and always lays like this when she sleeps on the sofa. She is quite the diva...
Here is a photo of Milo taken a couple years ago when he was a kitty. This is one of his favorite spots in the house and we laugh because he seems to know how good he looks in there!

Our cat Froxi lives in crete, greece and has lost one eye when she was a baby. But she is still adorable!
This is my Bullmastiff, Moulin Rouge "Rue" or "Baby Rue" to us! She is a very happy, loving, cuddle bug. She always needs to be near us and we couldn't be happier to have it! We've caught her many times in the backyard sitting on our deck chairs and we even place one extra chair for her around our backyard fire pit.
