Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 24 Jan 2011 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[.]com and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

City-turned-country dog Bubba (aka Cindy Crawford) perched on the bed in our freshly remodeled ranch house in Uruguay, staring at the cows, no doubt.

I was trying to get a shot of the entire room and all of my pets happened to be in the picture. The white dog is Mo, the brown/white dog is Fiona and the cat is Frankie. They love being the center of attention and taking naps on the couch and chair. 🙂

Please find attached a snap of Watson, our (now) 3 month old beagle mix. It is the miracle shot, the split second in Watson’s day when he is actually still! I can hardly believe I got even one usable shot out of the dozens attempted 🙂

The first minute we had these two art déco club chairs, our oldest tabby cat claimed one of them. Naturally the one with the cosy, fury cushion, underneath the lamp. A classy chair for a classy cat, named Karel (=Charles).
– Lieve (Leuven, Belgium)
1 – This puppy belongs to Caitlin McCarthy and Levi Ogner. Met him while shooting a house tour of their loft, and loved how patient and sweet he was.
2 – These two dachshunds Gaudi and Conan stole the show during my house tour of Kristen James + Mike Dunn’s remodel. They were quite friendly and regal on their vintage couch.
3 + 4 – This siamese cat, Lily Mae, belongs to Liv + Jeff McMillan. She was very timid and generally kept to herself, however during our shoot she came out to eat once in a while. We found it humorous that she deemed the anorexic cat who infamously pukes all the time 🙁 Though we then had to laugh at the thought that she may suffer from body issues?

This is our 25 pound cat Finnegan on our old couch.  He came to us from a feral colony where someone dumped him as a kitten- who wouldn’t want 25lbs of his love!
– Samantha (Victoria, B.C.)
Eight year old Harrison, AKA “Harry” is posing on the late 40’s early 50’s bureau my father used his whole married life that now resides in our guest bedroom.  I like the barley twist detail and fun knobs on the bureau.
– Melissa
I thought I’d forward along a picture of my very fancy greyhound, Ramona…She loves resting her head on our fur pillow, while lounging on our Room and Board sofa!

I am IN LOVE with the Beatles print. Fabulous living room (coupled with adorable animals).

GB says:

Love love love the first room (and the pup!)

Melissa says:

Thanks for another fun Monday–and for posting my photo of Harry the cat. What a fun idea you have to brighten up Monday mornings.

Julia says:

The first photo-Heidi's photo of her bedroom so different from anything I've seen recently. I love the gray and dark colors, but with the light coming in from the window that Bubba is staring out of, it's not depressing or glooming at all. Definitely saving this in my inspiration folder!
