Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 18 Jul 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!)

This is Jasper, my newfie, in my apartment in New York City. She was feeling sick, so allowed on the loveseat for the day.

This is Nell, our retired racing greyhound on Pottery Barn’s Manhattan sofa. Above her is one of four original prints from 1891 issues of Harper’s Weekly – proposed renderings of the Columbian Exposition, which was built the following year.

Kitty follows me around the house, but especially loves when I work in my studio so she can get comfortable on my custom made peacock chair!  We adopted her three months ago from a rescue organization. When she is not laying on the chair watching me, she likes playing fetch with plastic drinking straws (for real) or pulling upholstery nails out of the furniture!
– Kate and Andries (Shanghai China)

This is Lucille, the queen of the house. She is seen here in the first 2 pictures on my mom’s new bedding (a huge change from the last “pets on furniture” picture I had of Lucille) and then in my room yawning/hinting at me that she is no longer going to cooperate with the picture taking. Clearly we are (now) a household that doesn’t shy away from colorful and dramatic bedspreads!
– Sarah (New York City)

Lulu sitting on a  leather Butterfly chair in the Catskills.
– Audrey (New York, New York)

Here is Toby, my mom’s Yorkie mix, striking a handsome pose on a bench in her living room.
– Dina

Here’s my retired Greyhound Bel taking it easy on her cane sofa. She’s taken total ownership of the sofa and spends hours contemplating…  whatever…. here in the sculpture-studio sitting-room.
– Lindsay (Hokianga, New Zealand)

This is a picture of our baby boy Dakota sitting on an antique wooden child’s table and chair. He wouldn’t fit on it now so he opts for the loveseat instead.
– Canace (Bloomingburg, N.Y.)

This is photo documentation of my living room, just in case I forget what it looks like in later years? I was just spinning taking pictures from a centre point in the apartment but there the little cutie, Frankenstein, is, hanging out on the most comfortable futon ever.
– McKenzie (Eugene, Oregon)

Attached is a picture of Tucker, our Goldendoodle, who fancies himself a great protector.  Just a few minutes before this picture was snapped, he was laying on the futon “keeping watch” on the insides of his eyelids, but then he heard a noise and decided to snap to attention.  🙂
– Bev (Maple Shade, NJ)

After my friend Amanda had her two fluffy darlings Alfie and Andi exposed to internet fame i thought I would send through a little slice of a day in the life of my cat. His name is Ali, as in the boxer. he was named as such after being rescued at five weeks old from under the concrete floor of a boxing gym by the fire department. As you can tell by his size he is probably supposed to be a street cat (probably going by the name of Cassius Clay). As he did not grow up with a mother he is a little bit mental and sometimes lives up to his name. In fact the vet actually registered him officially as Ali Mohammed. He likes to sleep in weird places, eat and pull things off the fridge door. I am particularly fond of the photo where he is imitating a pez-dispenser (despite it’s blurriness).

Decor and cute animals make my day. Would love to see more of Kitty's home in Shanghai, she is adorable and the blackboard fireplace and Chinese lessons are intriguing. Love your work DTI.

lea says:

that's funny Lauren, my dog hated cameras too and used to jump at it to knock it out of my hand whenever I tried to take her photo.

jen says:
