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. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to email@example.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)
This is one of my sons, his name is Lotus.

This is Charlie Bang. He is half Cairn Terrier and half King Charles Cavilier Spainel ( for those who are interested.) He usually sits on the sofa proper, not the back, but that day he was introduced to the vacuum cleaner and was not amused. As he is only 8 months, i am sure he just needs a little time.

I'm sending you a photo of our cat Cisza (which means 'Silence' in Polish - she used to be a very quiet kitten) sitting on her favourite dresser in our bedroom.

Sumo likes to lounge on a leather ottoman that was purchased at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. She skirts the house rule forbidding cats on ikat on a technicality by finding a box of paperwork to lie in.
