Monday’s pets on furniture – part 2

Posted on Mon, 3 May 2010 by KiM

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…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 and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

This is Jeremiah and he LOVES anything new, so he’s settled down into a new basket on the cocktail table…

These are my feathered babies. My cockatiel was having fun in our living room as she recovered from her sore wing (got caught in his cage, thank god his wing wasn’t broken). The other one is my lovely 14 year old yellow headed amazon, his name is Mauricio.

1 – This is just how Oscar sits all the time.  NEVER on the floor….always like a human, on a piece of furniture….preferrably near a window.
2 – This is Oscar taken on Christmas Day 2009.  I received a copy of Cesar Millan’s “How to Raise a Perfect Dog” book for a gift and it was left on the coffee table.  Oscar claimed the chair beside the table and fell asleep sitting up.  I couldn’t resist this shot!

This is my cat Jake laying on my amazing down filled vintage couch from the 70’s. I found it in someone’s yard with a FREE sign on it (SCORE)! Being strategically placed under a bright sunny window, it’s his favorite place to lounge.

My name is Shannon Ashburn and my Mastiff/hound mix is named Waylon.  My dog loves sleeping more than anything in life and I have a few shots of his weird positions.

My puppy “Pow Pow” on our leopard print coffee table/foot stools, I love the leopard pieces and my puppy so much.

1 – This is Riko.  He’s almost 5 and I adopted him in Kuwait when he was 1.  After overcoming the initial shock of moving from a shelter in the middle of the desert to a house, he decided that the bed is his safe place.  No matter where he is – my house, a hotel, or a relative’s home – he immediately jumps into the bed.  When he’s feeling lazy, he likes to have breakfast in bed.
2 – This is my mother’s dog Bandit who died in 2006.  Visiting me when I lived in Tunisia, he picked this chair as his favorite napping spot because my dogs refused to share their beds.
3 – This is Cashmere (left) and Riko (right) during our first week in Jordan.  None of my things had arrived and our apartment was filled with loaner items.  They picked the bed as the best place to spend time – leaving no room for me – until our furnishings arrived.”
“This is Annabelle, my parents’ darling black schnauzer. She’s a hit with everyone that visits, and gets way too much attention. She’s spoiled rotten, as you can see here.
– Claudia
Teddy being coy. Hiding underneath the Fightin’ Irish.

I am a daily fan of your blog and I’m sure that this is probably one of the most popular pages of your week but I have to say that I think this turning into Pets on Shabby Furniture…. can we keep it looking chic? and lose the over patterned sofas and bed covers with stains on them…..?

MM says:

it’s not just because i’m his mom, but yeah the parrot (Mauricio) is so handome and lovely, he enjoys walking on our bed. My father gave him to me as a birthday present 14 years ago, got home from school and found him in his cage besides my bed with a big bow on top….I absolutely love him, best birthday gift EVER. Thanks daddy!

Zoe says:
