If you would like to send me photos to include in the next pets on furniture post, please ensure your photos follow these 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 it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net. Thanks!
I was trying to photograph the wooden tote that I found at a local antique show this weekend so it's not officially a piece of furniture I'm trying to show off but the sofa, lamp and hutch in the background make it a furniture shot of sorts, right? :)
This is newly rescued Sarah (the great dane/bloodhound) making herself at home in some much needed Sun after a VERY hard winter just North of Boston.
This is our 8-month old Labradoodle Quimby, sitting on our Bo Concept armchair. He adores snuggling in the Restoration Hardware fake fur throw.

I have gone and done it again.....I have been feeding 3 feral cats since the end of the summer (see video here I took last month). I had told myself after the last stray I rescued that I would not go through that again. I knew that would not last. I could not bear to let these poor 8 or 9 month old kittens live like they had been anymore, and after being in contact with the Ottawa Humane Society and a couple of rescue organizations - none of which would help me - I decided I had had enough. So early Saturday morning, my husband and I managed to trap 2 of the kittens.
In the photo above you can see 3 of the kittens. We trapped the 2 that are standing in front of the garage they lived in. (They often ran out to greet me like this in the mornings because they knew I brought them breakfast).
This was taken a few hours after we had brought them home. Luckily I have a spare bedroom in this house with no furniture in it so it is now the feral cat hangout. I am fairly sure the one on the left is a female. She is the friendliest and loved to be petted (so I was able to get a look at her backend since she often came out of the garage to get some attention and get to the food before the others). The one of the right I am not sure if it's male or female. It hasn't really let me pet it but doesn't run away when I try to. Judging by its temperament I think it will for sure come around.
They are pretty terrified of the events of Saturday but at least their food bowl was empty when I checked in on them Sunday morning (I hope to gawd they are both eating). I plugged in a Feliway diffuser I picked up Sunday night so I hope that helps. We tried to get the 3rd kitten and what I think might be their mom Sunday morning but were unsuccessful so we will try again Tuesday morning. I really hope we can catch them all and that they come around. There is that to worry about (my nerves are shot I am so concerned for these little cuties), and then how to pay the vet bills when the time comes. Please say a little prayer that this whole saga ends on a happy note. And I'll be posting update photos on Instagram if you're interested in following the progress. *SIGH*
