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!

I did send you two pictures of the same chair, round about a year back, with my white persian cat Zoe sitting on it. Well, Zoe got a brother puppy a couple of weeks ago and he commandeered it (as well as the couch and every other chair he is able to reach. Even the cat tree isn't save from him.). His name is Clooney as he is a true womanizer, beagle / pug mix and he turned 4 months yesterday (Feb 3).

This is Jericho on his dad's leather armchair. This is his "my food bowl is only half full" face. Jericho was on death row before being rescued by a no kill shelter and is an FIV cat too :) he's come a long way from the green mile.

P.S. Jericho has his own Facebook page
Here is a photo of our cat, Nico, who likes to "sit up" like this on our vintage chairs (luckily she blends in well with the new-ish upholstery). She lords over the lower floor, moving from chair, to couch, to chair again, while our other cat, Bella, commandeers the upstairs, moving from bed to bed. We lowly humans work around them. ;)

Charlie and Dash make a living out of sleeping so it is not uncommon to find them on furniture...but here is the big difference...Charlie is primarily an indoor dog and so he is not shooed off furniture...however Dash spends his time acting as the Mayor of Greenwood, our tiny town, visiting the neighbors, and more than a few neighbors have sent me photos of Dash on THEIR furniture! He usually gets pretty dirty on his exploits so I will lay a blanket down when he wants to lounge. This time, he snuck in and made himself "invisible". I did not have the heart to shoo him...and Charlie soon joined him on the other sofa....

This is Inny, my Euro-babe, in front of two most likely 50s Danish chairs we rescued from my neighbor's attic. We had them stripped, re-finished, re-strapped and reupholstered. We have chinchillas too, but we don't let them pose with Inny!
