Monday’s pets on furniture – part 2

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!)

This is Simba our abyssinian kitty, he’s very adventurous and loves to climb this 8 foot ladder we have in our house. This picture always makes us laugh, imagine him singing, fa la la la la!
– Leah (Kailua, Hawaii)
This is Ringo our Manchester Terrier sitting on HIS chair in the kitchen, where he watches us cook dinner. I bought it from Vinnies for $15, re-upholsted it and painted it white.
– Gemma (Sydney, NSW)
Brothers Toby and Nicholas in Sydney. Toby is on the Chair.
– Thomas
Ella is a Mini Foxy, just 12 months old now! She loves to cuddle up on my favourite vintage cane chair in my office while I work! The chair was originally cane coloured but I sprayed it white to suit my office! It was once my Mum’s! I know it’s something I’ll have forever!
This picture shows my cats Maya and Peeps. Maya is sitting on my Room and Board sofa and Peeps is sitting on my CB2 rug. The coffee table was made by my boyfriend who makes custom furniture. The top pillow is Tugboat for Urban Outfitters and the carpet square on the table is from Galbraith & Paul.

– Michelle (Philadelphia)

This is Charlie, he loves to sleep on these Chilwick place mats. In fact he has rejected every soft, cozy, warm thing that I have ever brought home for him! Silly Cat.
Tina (Vancouver, B.C.)
Sophia Rescue Dog extraordinaire. Basset/German Shepard Mix. Yes came from a shelter backround but now prefers to sit on furniture.
– Grace
Here a few pictures of my cats sitting on furniture, they prefer to sit/sleep together. The first one is their favorite sleeping spot at the moment (they change over the year, in bed, on top, on the side table, under the side table, etc) Now it’s fashion to be on top of the side table, both, which doesn’t fit properly but they persist so we sometimes wake up from a cat falling down but it jumps up again until it’s morning and we go up… crazy animals. The second one is made this week on my new coffee table, I made it from salvaged verge collection stuff; the frame is made from a bed base, the legs were from an old broken greenish table, the mirror was cracked and the glass top came from an old desk. The shells I found at random over the world. I am so proud of it and so are the Pookies!
Wilma (Swanbourne (Perth), Western Australia)

Sadly, shortly after this taken, Snookums, 16 1/2, passed away (left).  Target still enjoys sleeping in his chair but not as much without his buddy next to him.

i really don't want to admit how much i enjoy these posts from around the world. or that when i wake up early at 5 am on a Monday Morn how often i think: "Ooooh, it's Monday Pets on Furniture"

Helena says:

LOVE the kitty pictures!

Alyssa says:

I enjoy reading these posts so much! All adorable and beautiful!

Tom says:

Isn't it possible to mix some design posts in on Mondays too?

This animal stuff is great but it doesn't inspire me to want to paint a wall or get out and look for new furniture.

KiM says:

You are in luck Tom – every single Monday Jo publishes a post that is not pet related!

Ash says:

I so look forward to these pictures! In the first one, I more imagined Simba singing 'I Just Can't Wait To Be King!' Adorable pictures, everyone : D

heymomo says:

Simba is hilarious! Great pic!

Tom says:

Thanks Kim, I just discovered your site, you guys are good!

Nice to know that you will be posting one design post on Mondays.

Glad to hear that Saturday and Sunday won't be dark too, that was almost 3 days without a good post!
Design junkies need their fix and when you're our drug we depend on you for a fix 😉

I love Charlie! I especially love the name… he looks like he has a white little Chaplin moustache. =)

Michelle is lucky to get her furniture custom made. What a dream come true!
