Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 8 Aug 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!)

Only the most grandiose piece of furniture in the house will do for my Papillon, Dita.

This is “Bebis” who moved with me across the ocean, from Toronto to Istanbul.

I do hope Peggy the miniature schnauzer from Glasgow can make the cut in out nursery!

Please find attached a photo of Murray our 9 month old cocker spaniel on ‘his’ couch! Next to ‘his’ couch is our re-conditioned vintage telephone (Murray loves to bite the wires) also in shot are our polka dot and ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’ pillows (which at the moment Murray’s trying to hump!).

This is Hector, my beautiful tabby companion. This represents my ideal work/life balance. My Mac, my kitchen and my cat.

This is our 15-year old cat Mrs Murphy which we rescued two years ago from an animal shelter. She´s a true lady and glamour is her stock in trade.

Four kittens showed on our front porch recently. We’ve taken them in and are trying (desperately) to find good homes for them as we already have a houseful of pets! The first picture shows Oreo on a bamboo and rattan chair from Ethan Allen, covered in a cute pineapple-print fabric. He’s playing with Rascal. The second picture shows Oreo and Lulu in the back of a station wagon pedal car (I hope that qualifies as furniture) that my father restored. Lily is on the floor between the station wagon and the attached horse cart. If anyone in California is interested in adopting these great little guys, please e-mail me at

Four kittens, oh my do you have your hands full. Hope permanent homes are found soon. 🙂

Love them ALL but I must say the photo of Murray is ridiculously cute. Just look at those eyes full of mischief. I'm sure he takes good care of his human pets.

RedScorpio says:

Murray's look is priceless! "I want to chew the wires. Are you done already?"

Beth C says:

Thanks, Leone–the kittens certainly do keep us busy. One of them went home today with a woman who works at our vet's office, but we still need homes for the other three!

Angela says:

Murray is the cutest cocker spaniel I have ever seen!

I am not a cat person but if I was my cat would look like Hector. Those green eyes are fantastic.

Ciska says:

I love Murray!!

Love Hector. And totally subscribe to Jess' philosophy!
