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 and a brief description can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
"Here is Stella blending right in to the sheep skin on our Bertoia Diamond chair."
"While Mario the cat (named for Mario Batali due to his both coloring, his rock n roll 'tude and his gourmet tastes) isn't technically on people furniture, I thought the fact that he had confiscated Shiloh's dog bed still counts. After all, it's a pet on a (pet's) piece of furniture!"
"Please find attached a picture of our British shorthair cat "Dulce". Her name means "sweet" in Spanish and that really defines her very well."

"This is Mose, he is fat. I think it’s the ice cream."
"This is Stefy on her favorite pouff. I've found her five years ago, very sick, sad and with her three small kittens. Now she's very healthy and happy, and so are her babies ...i have kept them with me all three of them. I have a total number of eight cats, all rescued from terrible situations. My house is small but extremely fun!!"
"Here is Flynn enjoying a nap on his favorite chair!"
"Pumpkin resting on my newly upholstered outdoor sofa. He looks great in orange!"
Because I didn't get very many pet entries for this post I thought I'd include some gratuitous photos of some of my cats on various pieces of furniture.
We've got Milo on my old dining table, Phoebe on an African camping chair a friend gave me, a plethora of cats scattered about my office, and Edgar asleep on the Ikea-hacked baby changetable.
