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 my Brussels Griffon, Alma, on a Room & Board couch.

My boyfriend wanted it black, I wanted it white, so we bought a grey sofa. The cat’s loved it anyhow. Leon (on the armrest) and Idde.

I am submitting photos we took during our recent vacation at Casale Monticchio in Umbria, Italy. One of the resident cats, Jasper, often came to visit us in our apartment, a 17th century converted outbuilding, which originally housed stables, pigsties, wine presses and a bread oven.
This is my dear French bulldog/shih tzu mix, Bo. She sits in her favourite corner of our well loved, down-stuffed leather sofa. Inevitably the pillows she is perched on are dramatically shoved off moments after she jumps up to rest her nearly hairless belly on the cool leather! For such a silly little dog, she certainly looks serious in this picture.

I snapped this recently of our cat, Smokey, enjoying a few minutes of peace on our couch. Our daughter was born 7 weeks ago, so life in our house has been a bit crazy! Smokey didn’t really appreciate my interrupting her nap but I couldn’t help it 🙂
