Monday's pets on furniture

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  desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

This is my 3 years old Yorkshire terrier Frodo siting at our bedroom's Luis inspired chair and on our bed. I am an artist, so you can see one of my blue sky series paintings hangs on bedroom's wall.

Hi there, here's a photo of our Tonkinese cats asleep together on their favourite chair.  
- Helena (New Zealand)

Here are my kitties, Riley and Josie in our mid century living room.  The couches were a great flea market find that I re-upholstered and they seem to have each claimed their own :)

This is my mother's white cat, Harry, sleeping on her bed in her Greek house. She has one of the last unrenovated but lovingly restored and maintained traditional houses in the village.

Sasha Kilmouseky posing regally on a chair I found 20 years ago in Melbourne at an exhibition for Art Park fabric designs. 
- Karina (Sydney, Australia)

This Ella Fitz. on our new chair, in Trondhjem, Norway. The chair was found in a second hand shop and painted with our favorite color. Ella is happy as long as she stays in the centre of attention, a spoiled little lady.
- Lars & Kristian

I thought you might enjoy a photo of my new burmese kitten Sprocket on our gorgeous handmade Windsor Chair. We bought the chair as part of our wedding gifts ; it has been handmade using Australian native timbers and it is just beyond gorgeous (and the kitten is very sweet too).
- Nikla

This is my baby Stella sittting on my favorite chair from Goodwill. :)
- Tara

This is Mindy, my 1.5 year Miniature Pinscher, on one of our newly upholstered bergere chairs.  Normally a blur in pictures, I am very proud of her for staying still and looking at the camera... without the intent of investigating and playing with it.

This is the world's best cat Lyman from Vancouver, Washington (US) - relaxing in the sun on the back of the couch....
He loves to lay in the sun on the kitchen table and he always looks so cute I can never kick him off!
- Meg

Our 3 cats (Walleed, Otta, Dwjareb) just love sleeping on our red cinema chairs.
- Judith (France)

Tippi is 15-ish. I tried to get a pic of her on the sofa but she would not settle down! Eventually I snuck up on her sleeping on the rug. (The sofa is Restoration Hardware Fulham. I am on the lookout for better pillows).

Although she isn't technically a 'pet', this is Olive an orphaned wombat which my parents hand-reared and released into the wild at their Farm in North-east Victoria. Here, Olive is pictured on one of the furniture pieces designed and crafted by my father. 
- Hana (Lima East, Australia)

Pete...my 20 year old cat on "his" couch. I don't even try to sit on it anymore.
- Stephanie

Here is my cat Harris lounging on my Danish hutch that I found at the Salvation Army amongst my mid-century ceramics collection.  Luckily he isn't really able to knock anything over since it is all earthquake puttied down.
-Christine

We just got a new couch - antique, blue velvet... yum.  Our cat, Maggie, clearly approves of our choice!

This is Margot, my English Bull Terrier. She loves to sleep and eat. All day. All night. If you look closely under the chair, you can see Elmer, one of the three cats Margot lives with. That's his favorite spot.
- Janne (Tvedestrand, Norway)

I love your Pets on Furniture posts and would love to see my Siamese Wedgehead boys Tyr and Thor on one of them! Here they are snuggled up together on my Womb chair, as they are every afternoon.
- Liv

Her name is Oakley, and this is HER SPOT. You sit there, and she will find a way to kick you out.
- Alex (Massachusetts)

This is our wing chair and our cat Thumper happens to be sitting on it.
- Bill

Penny is a year-old chihuahua terrier mix...the black part of her fur gets all over the couch and her white fur gets all over my black pants!
