Monday's pets on furniture

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. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

Here's our very sweet Moonshadow lounging on our IKEA Karlstad sectional, with an IKEA Hemnes Bookshelf in the background. We rescued her from a pile of leaves on a chilly November day, along with her brother, when she weighed just 12 ounces! Their mom was nowhere to be found and I couldn't bare to watch them shiver any longer. We were NOT what you'd consider to be "cat people" by any means but she stole my heart and we've loved kitties ever since.
- Erin

This time I'm sending you pictures of Oswald, my 2 year old cat, chillaxin' on the tv bench.
- Janne (Norway) FYI: Janne's Boston terrier was featured here

This is Charlie...and around our house...he is a hero...read here...What with saving my life and all, we had to make amendments to the "no pets on the sofa" RULE (we have 3 dogs and 3 cats)  and now, we have abandoned the rule all together and just keep blankets on the sofas. I had removed the blanket from THIS sofa, to take some Blog Photos, and when I went to change my camera lens, and turned around...."CHARLIE!" but seriously...look at the face...could you tell him to get down?
- Lesli (Greenwood, VA)

Zuni & Banjo doing what they do best…
- Melissa (Bloomfield, NJ)

This is Isabela, a french bulldog of four years old, in her favourite corner on the sofa...and Isabela, in an english chair.
- Claudio (Porto Alegre, Brazil)

And because there weren't as many entries as usual this week, I thought I'd add in one of mine I found on my phone.
This is Phoebe, curled up in a basket (where I stash plastic bags) on top of my pantry. There's a tall scratching post structure to the left of the pantry which provides the agile cats access up there.

This is Otto, just woken from an afternoon nap.
- Meg (Wellington, New Zealand)

Here is our dog, Toby, on our custom-made couch in our farmhouse in the bushveld (wilderness) in Limpopo, South Africa.
- Kate

This is Kiska, she is a Siberian Forrest cat who loves designer furniture. Sadly sometimes too much as she has clawed at our lovely leather Eames which is now covered in blankets to save it from further cat love. This is Kissy's new spot, still an Eames however a little more claw friendly.
- Luke, Ruby & Kissy

Here is a photo of 2 of my cars, Lola and Finny. They are lounging together on our cb2 draper sofa.
- Lisa

I have attached a photo of our oldest cat "Kitty" who is sitting on a foot stool I reupholstered. Behind her is a mid century rocking chair and lamp. All items purchased from the local trash and treasure market.

This is our rescue cat Elvis in his favourite afternoon nap spot, on my Robin Day dining chair, enjoying the last of the late afternoon sun! He immediately claimed the chair when we brought it home, so he is obviously a discerning cat when it comes to design classics!
- Holly (London, England)

This is Pandora, our Bengal rescue on the "Graffiti Chair" I designed for a client.
- S. Rohde Hill

The image attached is my beagle/fox hound mix, Roscoe. Rossie loves to sneak on the sofa when I'm not looking. On this particular day, he looked so comfortable basking in the sun that I didn't have the heart to disturb him!

I would like to submit a picture of my poodle Ben.  This pic was taken a couple months ago right after I rescued him from an animal hoarding/puppy mill situation in Minnesota.  I swear its not staged at all - that's just how he sits.  I was working on a project, turned around to check on him and then ran to grab my camera.  It actually inspired me to start a pet photography business Le Caniche Fou which means "the crazy poodle" which he very much is.
- Dawn (Washington, DC)

Featuring Puck (Weimaraner) and Room and Board Reese Sofa! We hadn't planned on letting him on the sofa... but he was so darn cute and cuddly we couldn't bare thought of denying him the pleasure! :)
- Danielle (Miineapolis, MN)

Here is Cukierek ("Candy") our enormous cat resting in his favourite place on our Ikea Manstad sofa. Sometimes he looks just like another pillow...
- Julia (Gdansk, Poland)
