If you would like to send me photos to include in the next pets on furniture post, please ensure your photos follow these 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, if the photo is too dark or unfocused it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net. Thanks!

Here’s Caleb discovering my new pedestal table, a glorious flea market find.

This is Salsa, Portuguese for the latin dance and also for parsley! Crazy right?! She’s a five years old smooth coat Fox Terrier rescue and she’s the sweetest, jumpiest, happiest girl ever even if her health isn’t the best (she has several allergies and was recently diagnosed with EPI – Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency making her unable to survive without medication). We live in an apartment and she loves to catch some sun in the balcony even in the Winter! She’s laying on a pallet sofa I’ve put together and painted 5 years ago. The cushions were done by me and my mother (the bottom one is an Ikea baby’s mattress).
– Marta (Lisbon, Portugal)
Our boy Henry on a lovely vintage step stool.
I grew up a dog person, but have since adopted two cats and gotten so obsessed that they have their own Instagram (@dinkuscats). I was arranging the bookshelf when Taiga jumped up and made herself part of the tableau!

This is a photo of my 4 1/2 month old fur baby, Oscar! I snapped him lounging in the sun this weekend on my grandmothers vintage arm chair.

Attached is a picture of Hendrix, our soon to be 7 year old lab/whippet cross. We adopted him from the Winnipeg Humane Society on Easter Monday six years ago. He has chewed through many pieces of furniture in his first few months with us. Hendrix has now become quite the master of hanging out on sofas and beds while we are out. He is in our master bedroom, updated from a old black lacquer bedroom set that I painted out with a cream-white colour and built a new head board with the old platform (building plans courtesy of another website Ana White).
