Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 13 Dec 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 and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

My cats Zoe (on the bed) and Mia (in background) got in the shot as I was shooting for my portfolio. 🙂

Lottie just discovered our orange chair last week and has been sitting there every afternoon since.  She does have 3 dog beds around the house but always picks that chair or the couch to lounge on instead. I love when she moves my throw pillows on the couch around to suit her napping needs.

i know that inside a cupboard may not qualify as furniture but i thought people might get a good laugh out of this on a monday. my brother always comes over to my house and puts my dog inside the microwave, or in a cupboard or inside a random box or something. its just his weird sense of humor but anyways i thought this was pretty funny. poor jude, clinging to a serving bowl for dear life!

Exxon lives a rough life.  When I moved to KC and started working with my friend here at Framework Design, I start taking pictures of him in the various places he slept cause he amused me.
Exxon taking a nap on the Barcelona Chair (He has refined tastes).
A comfortable couch and some warm sunlight.  Sounds like a good place to take a nap.  Exxon sure seems to think so.
We share our office space with a furniture rep.  As soon as she moved in, both Exxon and (Bio)Diesel took to this chair.  We work at our desks, they nap the day away on this chair

This is Sparky, our golden retriever fighter born on 4 July.  He’s loves lying on our bed and often falls fast asleep like a baby while waiting for us to hop in.

Attached please find Mabel, my silly, tri-colored fur child perched on the Bertoia Diamond Chair in the sitting room.  She looks spiffy amid the collected lovelies on the nearby spool shelf.

Kim in Jersey says:

I didn't think the microwave bit was particularly funny myself, but that's just me. I hear stories of people REALLY doing that to animals, and nothing sickens me more than that–even among all stories of animal abuse.

LIn says:

An animal stuffed into a cupboard or a microwave is funny? Not to me. Very disappointed you chose to include this photo.

KiM says:

Gimme a break people. If you have anything to say about Jude in the cupboard, read the owner's comment first (second one).

Joe says:

Poor taste. Period.

Amanda says:

Theresa, the rug is from Urban Outfitters, but I don't think they sell it anymore. 🙁

julie says:

not a fan of the scared looking dog in the cupboard, regardless of what the owner thinks.

daul says:

i adore today's post! amanda… i love the "Amélie" reference with those fab prints above the bed. i think ALL of these precious pets are beautiful!

CA says:

I have to agree with the comments re: cupboard dog… regardless of what the owner thinks; the dog is not enjoying that experience – period.

Sarah B says:

Yep, I have to agree with the others, I always read this with a smile on my face, but my face dropped when I saw that photo. Not fair to the little guy. I do love love love pets on furniture 🙂

Lin says:

I read what the owner says. Don't buy it.
