Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 4 Oct 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, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.comand PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

Danny is our Aussie Shepherd X who shares my passion for bright colours and gorgeous (if not slightly over the top) furniture.  He loves our turquoise sofa just as much as I do!
Agata (Hamilton, On)

Lily thinks she is the Queen of England and just loves to sit on her Ercol Evergreen throne where she can survey her kingdom. It’s a hard life!
– Cat and Matt (London, England)

This is our Spoodle Maggie chilling out on our Ikea floral chair and leather lounge. She really doesn’t have that much to be sad about (it’s all for the camera).
– D&J

Here’s my year-old kitty Yoni on ‘his’ sofa – you can see ‘his’ tree in the background, and his attempts to destroy the sofa (a hand-me-down from my parents) on the left. I made the cushions myself and the wool cloud rug (which he loves) is by Donna Wilson. Also a bonus photo of when he was smaller and used to hang out on the fireplace mantel.

We have four cats and each one has its favorite place in the house, like Clarita “on the safe highlands” and Biancchino in the drawer. But sometimes some of them get together for a nap in our vintage armchair.
– Maristela (Brazil)

First photo is Bodhi, on one of two Ikea sofa’s in the living room. He sleeps like this often. The other photo is Oliver the cat and Bodhi’s sister, Brinkley, later in the day on the same sofa. I, of course, was on the other sofa, so they had to share. You’ve featured Brinkley before, sprawled out on the coffee table.
– Beverly (Houston TX)

This is Gus, our 3 year old Portuguese Water Dog, loves to lay on our bed.  He feels like a king when I let him on the bed. I only do this when my husband is out of town! He is the best pet ever -so sweet and lovable.
– Melanie

This is Sullivan and his chair. Almost 3 and shares his birthday with Brittany Spears!
– Andy (NYC)

I bought a school desk to replace my London Tier phone book table. It just didn’t “tie the room together” This is Yap-Yap, my Maine Coon/Siamese mix in her new napping place. So much for a phone sitting there.
– Gina (Portland, OR)

‘Moss’ chilling out on the bean bag
– Hilary (Brisbane, Australia)

Puck on chair.
– Jackson

vivi is my 15-year-old persian. needless to say that she sleeps 24h a day.
– Christiana (Brasilia, Brazil)

I agree with Deedy's comments. All of these photos just make you smile. The shot of Yoni as a kitty on top of the fireplace is especially cute!

Leone says:

These always make me smile and for that I thank you! I agree that Yoni on the mantle it too cute! There was a time I could put anything on our mantle due to our two "boys" (brat cats).

Almost always, the best thing about Monday is "Monday's Pets On Furniture." And almost always there are large smiles involved.

Oh my goodness, so cute! I want to get a pet now, too! Thank you for this feature!

Holly says:

Definitely my favorite part of Mondays. Thanks for this! It lifts my spirits!

Sam K says:

Sam and KK like Maggie the Spoodle.

Sara D says:

That turquoise couch in the first photo is to die for.. I'm caught in a love/jealous emotional conundrum! I love pets on furniture… why bother having furniture if your babies can't sleep on it? It makes it so much comfier 🙂

samantha says:

TheAL says:

These just made my day, especially the black pup on the b/w chair and white cat in white drawer. Adorable!
