Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 18 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!)

Kitty loves to curl up for a nap or sit on the back of the sofa in our living room. We love the mid-century feel of this charcoal sofa – even if it doesn’t hide her hair all that much.”

The pet is our cat called Taxi and the piece of furniture is my cheap white Ikea-seat that I have for more than ten years now. The kid is our daughter, Esmée. This picture is taken in July 2009, a few days before her first birthday. Although this scene suggests otherwise, Taxi and Esmée get along fine.”

I saw this sweet pooch one day while I was at our local rock quarry getting some nice stones for our aquarium. This is the waiting room.  I don’t remember his name but the owners assured me that no one else was allowed in the chair!

This is Mike my 4 years old Boston Terrier.

This is our beloved cat, Hampus. He is 1,5 years old and was a homeless cat once. But now he is just fine – and he really appreciates almost all the furnitures that we have…
– Emöke (Malmö, Sweden)

This is Stella sunbathing on our mid-century modern ottoman (the ottoman was my grandmothers and I used to take naps on it as a kid, a tradition she now keeps alive) I also like to think she has good taste in furniture.

Miss Bee finally fell asleep after renovating a few items in our house. It is all new to her and she thought the forbidden couch was her style.

Here are my babies, Hudson and Arnold.

Ashes has the priviledge to sleep wherever she wants and she really likes this cabinet my grandfather built for me. Judging by the look in her eyes, she didn’t really like the photo session.
– Jelena (Novi Sad, Serbia)

What good is acquiring beautiful furniture if not for adorable animals sleeping on them?

Greet says:

Oh my! I so enjoyed this post! I hope to take a good picture of my dog on a piece of furniture;, once, so that I can send it to you!!
Have a wonderful week!

Nina says:

I have a catfever and this makes me even more feverish…as soon as I have moved I shall try find a cat that would like to share the apartment with me;)

Such adorable pets. A beautiful way to start the day!

Your Monday posts are some of the most adorable posts on the web!

Of course, since I am a "baby" lover, I love the baby petting the kitty. Notice the curled up baby toes!
