If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our 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 email@example.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
"Kitty loves to curl up for a nap or sit on the back of the sofa in our living room. We love the mid-century feel of this charcoal sofa - even if it doesn't hide her hair all that much."

"The pet is our cat called Taxi and the piece of furniture is my cheap white Ikea-seat that I have for more than ten years now. The kid is our daughter, Esmée. This picture is taken in July 2009, a few days before her first birthday. Although this scene suggests otherwise, Taxi and Esmée get along fine."

"I saw this sweet pooch one day while I was at our local rock quarry getting some nice stones for our aquarium. This is the waiting room. I don't remember his name but the owners assured me that no one else was allowed in the chair!"

"This is Mike my 4 years old Boston Terrier."
