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 firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
"This is Mavi, my 8 month old kitten. He is really cuddly and loves sleeping on furry stuff!"
"This is Morgan. I didn't even pose him. Seriously. He was just sitting there."
"Here is a picture of my cat, Mary, watching tv in our living room. I think it was Law & Order (she used to like it, but lately she has stopped watching it). The art on the wall, listed in order clockwise from the top left includes: two cyanotype photographs by my husband Marek Warunkiewicz, "Float" by Charles Pachter, a small photo by Bill Schwab (sitting on the furniture), a photo taken around 1910 of my great grandfather who was a surveyor in Western Canada, and one of the famous Toronto streetcar prints by Charles Pachter. The vase was made by my husband."

"This is my golden retriever, Murphy, relaxing on one of the many chairs and couches that came with the house we kindly purchased for him to enjoy. The clock I found at a thrift store."
"This is my three year old Pekingese Manny showing off his summer haircut. You can find him pretty much anywhere in the house when he wants to lounge, but he really seems to like the sofas where he can keep an eye on everyone :)"
