Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 21 Jun 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 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 and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

Hi, my name is Ana Ferraz, I’m from Brazil and this lovely pet is Bijou, one of my four adopted cats. She is a delicate white princess, an angel with blue vivid eyes. She is so beautiful (I’m a proud mother…rs) that I consider her a essential part of the decoration.

This is my dog, Seiko. Doing what she likes the most… yawning

I’m sending you a photo of my cat Sofia Coppola on my retro furniture.

Is this furniture??? The Kitty thinks so. She likes to perch here and look out at the garden…… when she’s not lounging on my floor cushions…. or trying to blend into the sofa. It’s a rustic hand carved bench from Bali. Too big for my house really, but I can’t part with it….or the cat! — We found “Kitty” when she was just a kitten. She’s deaf and was stranded on our roof after a typhoon. She’s 10 years old now and fat!

This is Ponyo, on his favourite look-out spot on our tatami mat. Watching the world go by.

This is our cat Houdini caught plotting his escape!

Attached are two photos of my German Shorthaired Pointer, Lucy, with our king-sized bed all to herself—a rare occasion. Every night, the bed holds my husband, me, Lucy, and our two other German Shorthairs ….

Here is a shot of our recently departed, beloved mini schnauzer, Mariah, monopolizing her favorite (and my husband’s, too) red leather chair, passed down from my husband’s grandfather. Sometimes you just have to stretch out and enjoy the ottoman.

Here is June with her Buddha. We’ve used an antique twin head board to create a little altar.

Here is Miro, my Great Pyrenees, lost in his thoughts…

This is Omni, who was desperate for attention while I was working feverishly on my dissertation!

Here is our rescue cat, Mickey, on our rescue sofa from Craigslist.

On Monday’s Pets on Furniture, I suspected Jeanette had cleverly photoshopped Baron’s image. Which, as you can see, I’ve restored. (ha)
– Priscilla

What a beautiful cat.

Love Baron’s proper post. I also love Bijou. She looks like a statue!!!

Each time you make this feature about animals in an interior setting – it always brings a smile to my face, actually more often I giggle or laugh. These photos and especially the animals are all stars – so adorable 😀

I absolutely love this section of your webiste! May I suggest also asking submitters to include their geographical locations; I am always curious where these pets are from? Just a thought..
