Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 9 May 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 closeups of your pet!)

The first is of my cat, Ruby, on our mid-century inspired sofa.  The second is of our big girl, Asparagus, on a chair just nabbed up at the flea market last weekend that is taking a turn with that black and white pillow.  This is pretty much what they do all-day-long.  Ahh, the life of a cat.

This is my little sweetheart Kaipo relaxing on my favorite reading chair from Anthropologie.

This is Bernie. He likes to jump up onto furniture and hang out. Whenever I walk into the room, I often find him sitting up on a chair, sofa or bed. I think he likes the higher vantage point. He also likes checking himself out in the mirror.

Scout, enjoying the front yard in Sydney’s Inner West. This is how a Federation house should be enjoyed… Ikea provided the chair.

It is hard to find a photo of our house without Suzi and Lennie sitting on furniture but here are a few favourites from previous home. The first is Suzi la sausage as a puppy. I used to get home from work and she would be lying in the sun on the kitchen bench. The second is Suzi and Lennie enjoying the heater…which was a nobo behind the couch. It is at times very tricky moving them off furniture as they assume the dachshund paws in the air Im asleep pose regularly.

Here are some pics of my cat on an indian day bed.
– Merel (Amsterdam)

This is Flock (means snowflake in catalán), we were trying to take some photos of my boyfriend’ s new table design, and he decided to participate in the photo shoot as well. Not a bad idea 🙂
– Ana (Barcelona)

Here are some stellar photos of my kitten Fox Lucite. His middle name is a result of his affinity for this lucite end table.  We could have named him Bertoia for his affinity for our Bertoia bird chair too!  The final photo is Fox all grown up in his second favorite chair, a silver leather armchair designed by Kelly Cole of Lo-Fi and Kelly Cole Extraordinarium.

CAT version. Geez ^^

Okay…Thumper is cracking me up. What a ham!


YES, the life of a cat. For me personally, I love putting my pets and cuddling with them on the living room. However, my husband thinks it's not a nice idea because of the cat's fur / hair. He said it will stick to our furniture and sofa sets. Well, I just bought a special brush that could remove that.

I'll find some ideas on how to picture my cat and I'll submit them to you if it turns out great.
