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 firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don’t send closeups of your pet!)
Although she isn’t technically a ‘pet’, this is Olive an orphaned wombat which my parents hand-reared and released into the wild at their Farm in North-east Victoria. Here, Olive is pictured on one of the furniture pieces designed and crafted by my father.

Pete…my 20 year old cat on “his” couch. I don’t even try to sit on it anymore.
Here is my cat Harris lounging on my Danish hutch that I found at the Salvation Army amongst my mid-century ceramics collection. Luckily he isn’t really able to knock anything over since it is all earthquake puttied down.
We just got a new couch – antique, blue velvet… yum. Our cat, Maggie, clearly approves of our choice!

This is George, our 3 year old British Blue. He’s not very clever, but he strikes a good pose!

This is my foster cat, Blossom. She’s sitting on a chair I reupholstered with hand-dyed fabric. Blossom is up for adoption (details HERE), and I hope she finds a forever home with lots of comfy chairs.

His name is Odin, a Great Dane/Saint Bernard this is his favorite spot to nap. To give you an idea of how big he is: I am 5’4″ and I can curl up in that chair!

Wanted to share my two cute and fluffy cats that always find the most random places at home to hang out.
