Monday's pets on furniture...and a rescue mission

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 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*

We recently got a dog who keeps me company while I design, and he likes to balance on our One Drink Table. His name is The Head Honcho, but we call him Honcho for short.

This is my new kitten Soetkin (Sootie) yawning on my husband's Patrik Accent chair. It's protected with a hand loomed serape that my friends brought me from Argentina. The little table was my mother's. I gilded the base and added a marble top from an off cut of our kitchen counter. The wall is waiting for some art!

My pup (Professor Cumulus - Informally Known As Abbie) is passed out on a Mitchell Gold sofa at the interior design firm where I work. She comes to the office with me every day and this was a long one. More information about the artwork above her is here.

This is a photo of our Scottie, Greyson on a refurbished ottoman. Any piece of furniture close to a window tends to be his favorite place to watch for evil squirrels. He's our wee hero.

Here are a couple of pictures of our beloved 2-year-old beagle puppy named Glasha. She is a big fan of Eames side chairs! :)

Here's the lovely late Cyla on her (and my) favourite chair. After a very hard life, this lovely one-eyed pit bull had three divine final years surrounded by love and fine design :)

:( RIP Cyla

This is my cat Loomis, who was a rescue from the local shelter. He turned out to be a bit more troubled than expected, but time (and medication) have softened his fears, and things are turning around for the better. In the first photo, he is perched in his favorite warm weather spot, reaching out for and basking in a rare moment of dappled Seattle sunlight. In the second, he turns his attention to me. He is under an enormous painting of Vladimir Lenin, a favorite Ebay find of mine.
