Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

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. 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!)

We have 3 wonderful cats. Dolce is the leader of the pack. He is a seven year old Siamese who is the love of our life. During the day, he likes lounging on Italian furniture, especially on pieces that suit his coloring. Other than that, he loves listening to hip hop and being admired. He is also a major foodie who loves to eat everything from steak and pasta to macaroons. We adore him!

This is my lab mix Keifer in his usual spot at the foot of the bed.  I recently decorated this room for a design blog challenge and he wouldn’t get up so I could take the final pictures. Looks better with him on it anyway :)

Here is a dog on an mid-century styled couch. The dog was so chill and comfortable he barely even acknowledged I was there. I took these photo while shooting the interior for a client of mine.

This is my boxer, Stringer Bell sitting in is HIS chair. The chair is a vintage piece my neighbor had placed on the curb.  He said it was taking up space and was setting it out for bulk trash day. I scooped it up and it found it's place in my living room...after a good washing. The dog, Stringer Bell, named after the character from 'The Wire', was supposed to be an aborted puppy along with his three brothers. I worked a vet clinic where a client came in with a near-to-term pregnant boxer. She said she "didn't have time for puppies" and she needed to spay her dog immediately. The doctor reluctantly obliged but the vet techs, myself included, had other plans to remove the puppies and hand rear them. Stringer Bell was the one I pulled out and helped him breathe his first breath. I bottle fed him, my chihuahua trained him, and we all loved him. My foster puppy soon became another very much loved addition to our family. And the chair....well the chair was a perfect lookout point and a great place for Stringer Bell to sit like the gentleman he is.

Indy thinks all pieces of furniture in our house belong to him. Here he is sitting proudly in my armchair, and then lounging on the large couch we designed and built ourselves.

Hibou might only weigh 3lbs, but she definitely knows how to pick the best seat in the house!

I have a picture of my dog on a sofa for you. I'm the next door neighbour. 
Her name is Piper. And she is rather ridiculous.

In Spain I work as a interior designer, so your blog inspires me a lot! I'm also an animal lover so i want to send you some pictures of my beloved dog "Tapón".
- Ana (Madrid, Spain)

Last time I sent you a picture of Max. This time of his sister, little Miss Tinkerbell. She is a tortoiseshell cat and has the personality that goes with it: strong-willed, fiercely independent and like her brother and mum (both ginger) very talkative. She makes her presence and needs known with a meow to a strong purr. She is a hand full but so cute…
- Sandra (The Netherlands)

Our pups, Nigel and Levon really know how to relax.
Levon, the puppy, loves the chairs in the sunroom, especially after they've baked in the sun all afternoon.
Nigel, the teenager, has claimed the couch for his naps: he can watch the birds and kitties outside the window without budging a hair.

I'm a fan of your blog and I'd wished to send a picture of my kitty, Melora, for your "pets on furniture" for a while. Problem is, we're practically still camping in our new apartment -- and the homes shown in your weekly feature are so pretty, I don't know that I can "compete" with many of them. On the other hand, unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of time to wait to accessorize my home to be as glamorous as I wish it would be; Melora is a FELV+ kitten -- we knew she likely was when we adopted her (or, rather, when she adopted us) and knew that she was probably not going to be with us for very long. She's now been found with what is likely to be a lymphoma affecting both bowel and lungs.
So, you see, we definitely don't have much time. Yet I'd like to let the world know that she exists and that we love her very much. She seems to be in ageement with me on that, because she's not a very easy kitty to photograph, but she practically sat and posed for these ones.
1 - Here she is, sitting on one of her favourite "look-out" spots, on the custom-made shelf beside my computer desk, amidst Ikea boxes and a cat-shaped mini CD rack I got as a Christmas present a number of years ago.
2 - And here she's sitting on my mother's beloved coffee table, which she "customized" herself, adding the globes filled with dried roses and kiwi-tree branchlets. No other cat has ever been allowed to get up on that table, but of course Melora had to take possession.
