Monday's pets on furniture and another plea for help

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 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!

I am a contributor and photographer for Apartment Therapy and I took this photo of Cutler during one of my house tour photoshoots. He has pretty much taken over this iconic Gaetano Pesce Up Chair and his owners have given up. He is so cute that he gets away with everything. Cutler you are the best!
Marcia Prentice (Los Angeles, California)

Chubby on the fridge, probably waiting for me to stop bugging him so he can take a bite out of that plant.
- Doug (San Francisco, CA)

I found these teak mid century chairs on Craigslist. They had white vinyl covers and I had them reupholstered at Spruce with Thomas Paul Plume fabric in chartreuse. Those chairs make me giddy every time I look at them and I thought they deserved a bright and happy color! I think Maggie (miniature Labradoodle) and Fern (Havanese) agree, they are always on "their" chairs.

*** Please check out my story after the jump. It's a plea for help on behalf of an organization trying to do their part to provide sick and elderly cats a home.

This is our baby Glico, she is a three month old Dalmatian sitting on one of our Calligaris 'Basil' chair.

This is our Tibetan Terrier, Theodore. We bought this new chair, and he immediately thought it belonged to him. 
- Terra (Dallas, TX)

This is our Scottish Terrier, Grey, checking out the guest room with the newly installed reclaimed wood door headboard. Clearly, he approves and has made himself comfortable.
- Pat (Carleton Place, ON)

This is Kahlua, the black dog, and the cat Crème de Menthe with their friend Lexi, on the top of the sofa. Despite reservations on some parts, they posed for this picture in New York. Maybe it was because Lexi was visiting for the weekend that Kahlua agreed to be part of the picture. Normally, she runs as soon as she sees the camera.
- Jessica

I would like to put forward my friend Barbara's poodle Zoey for Pets on Furniture. Zoey lives in Auckland, New Zealand and in this photo is dressed up in her couture finery on Bastille Day this year.  She is a very quiet and sweet little girl who weighs a mere 3kg or 6 1/2 pounds (smaller than my cats!)
- Fiona

I hereby send you a picture of my funny little cat 'Otje'. She is extremely fond of the goat and sheepskins we have lying around in our house. She destroyes them all in time, but we adore her!
- Ingeborg (Netherlands) 

Here is Beau-Anthony our Bichon Frisee. 14 yrs old.
- Jeffrey (Dallas Texas)

Here's my dogs Ninja and Zoe. Ninja is a Husky/Pointer mix (a rescue) 13 years old. Zoe is a chihuahua, 10 months old. They are best of friends, they play and cuddle all day long. Zoe is carefree, energetic, and a bit sneaky. Ninja is calm, (unfortunately) a little bit nervous and gentle. Different personalities, but as friends (or “sisters”) that doesn’t matter much. They truly love each other!
- Benedicte (Norway)

Old Moe and a new chair...
- Heather & Greg

This is Columbus on our falcon stool, showing his complete lack of interest in the cricket.
- Christy (Melbourne)

Here's Dreamboat Annie Doodle who loves her over stuffed couch almost more then romping through the woods in the mountains of Colorado.
- Carlye (Nederland, Colorado)

 

I've attached 2 images of my beautiful Harry-Barry on the sitting room sofa.  In one he's having a little sing-song! He's my first Jack Russell and I'm absolutely besotted which I've been told happens by owners of other Jack Russells - they're the toddlers of the animal kingdom. Sofa has been handed down a generation and now sports a loose cover in red and white checked cotton from IKEA  Cushion is by my sister's company 'Luxe Adornments' and painting above is by me.

This is OJ on our master bed, making himself comfy on the pillows (my mom sewed the cases). If you look closely, you can spot his brother's tail in the photo, too. 
- Holly (Orlando, FL)

I wanted to send you a photo of my dog, Pickles, who snuck on set at our most recent Lamps Plus catalog shoot. He didn’t make it into the catalog, but the photographer was quick to snap this photo of him, and he’s enjoying his 15 minutes of fame. :)
- Ivette (Porter Ranch, CA)

My buddy Miles loves to travel with me and truly appreciates dog-friendly hotels with style. Here he is taking a nap in a boutique-style Westin hotel room.
- Emma

Our puggle Hektor loves to visit my parents' house. Not only do they live 10 mins from the beach-- providing ample opportunity for running around like a maniac, digging to the center of the earth and eating seaweed-- their living room features this uber comfy Shag Pouf from Calypso Home. (Shown in Navy in front of Restoration Hardware's 1950s Leather Copenhagen Chair.) As you can see, Hektor has come to think of it as his personal pouf.
- Alex (Brooklyn, NY)
