Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 31 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.comand PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

Here’s a photo I took of of my cat Muji on a Saarinen tulip chair.
-Bruce (Austin, TX)
Here is a photo of my two model dogs – Lily (brown and white) and Molly (black and white) both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They both love this chair and if there is a cushion in the way, Molly will just lie on top of Lily to ensure she doesn’t miss out!
Kellie (Sydney, Australia)
Eva on grandfather’s chair.

– Erin & Shannon (Seattle)

Please find attached a photo of our French Bulldog Mack who has been sprung on my heritage silk bedcover(check out the guilty look) playing with his ball.
– Vicki (Auckland, New Zealand)
I’ve attached a photo of my little lady, Oney, enjoying my Ikea slipper chair.

I live in Maine and last year I took some interior photos of my apartment & one of my cats, Bagheera, snuck into this picture.  He’s not exactly on the furniture, but the furniture was meant to be the focal point!

I know you ask for no close-ups but had to show you how Lucy, the camouflage queen, disappears when she curls up on my faux fur throw.   “You can’t see me!”  When she was younger she would nurse on the pillow– thought it was her mom.
– Jean (Knoxville, TN)

It may be 26 below outside, but Henry the Great, Stan and Frankie all find the one warm spot in the house – much to the dismay of our leather sofa.
(I stole the photo below off Nikki’s website because King Henry is a superstar)
This is a picture of my rescued feral cat, J.R., basking in the afternoon sun on a hand crocheted afgan on a Natucci couch. It’s a long way from the greasy truck yard where he was born.

I have attached two pictures of my 7 month old kitten George, he’s a Snowshoe cat and is a little bit of a spoilt brat, but that’s why i love him so. He likes to hide on the little shelf on my dressing table, but his favourite place to sit is in the sunshine on the big armchair in the lounge!

These are my book ends; Murphy-Doodle (blond, left, 9 years old) and Shadow (right, 5 years old) on my hand-me-down PURPLE couch I have always wanted——-pre and post “squirrel-sighting” included.
– Gina (St Johns, Oregon)

Celeste says:

J.R. is resting on a hand-KNIT afghan, beautifully executed, by the way. It is an old pattern known as Shell and Shale that was much used mid-century and before. Knitters don't like to see their work mis-labeled. J.R. obviously knows a good thing when he finds it.

Pre and post "squirrell-sighting" – funny; very cute.

nrw says:

Oh, and Muji is beautiful!

js says:

Lucy, the camouflage queen, has the same markings as my rescue cat from Dayton, Ohio. I've never seen another cat quite like her.

da says:

I love the shot of Molly and Lily, the Cavalier King Charles spaniels on the chair. They are adorable!

Thank you all for sharing your photos of your furniture and, oh, also your pets. 😉

Lots and lots of cat this week, but out of the bunch but Henry the Great, Stan and Frankie look realllly confortable
