Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 5 Apr 2010 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…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 can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!!!)

my pup lucy. my new table top sculpture…. she likes to sit on the window shelf  and watch the world go by.

I was playing around with my camera this weekend trying to document my living room for my blog (before I change up stuff for the 10,000th time :-), and I happend to take this shot. My photography skills are limited to point and shoot, but I managed to capture my cat Charlie resting on one of my favourite pieces of furniture – my grandma’s retro armchair. Charlie loves to snooze up there, while keeping an eye on the turmoil of the street below…
– Katja (aka Fat Cat)

Cletus knows she is not supposed to be on the couch. This particular couch is in my front room, the “Cat Free Zone”, but sometimes I forget to close the door and I just know that she will be in there curled in a ball, pretending that I can’t see her snoozing. In this pic she knows she’s been caught! Sometimes she gets evicted but if she looks at me cute enough.. she gets to stay until Dad gets home.
– Sara (Ottawa)

My husband and I adopted 8 year-old Whiskey from a shelter a year ago, and he’s 17 lbs of fluffy love! This week he discovered the comforts of sleeping on the back of the living room chair. I bought the pillow case on a business trip to Africa, and it is hand-painted.

Here are some photos of Oscar, my friend Meredith’s cat, whom we were “cat sitting” last week. This was his favourite hang out spot. So cute – didn’t want to give him back!
– Sheila

This is our 6 years old Jack Russell, Toby, who simply loves sleeping and making himself cosy on our sofa, on our beds, and with pillows and cushions in tow!
– Susan

this is my dog Cash chillin on my Rachel ashwell arm chair, and watchin tv on my west elm sofa!

Hi, this is Gala, my 2 year old Himalayan. We are from Lima, Perú. Gala loves to rest and play on the top of my computer´s chair… even when I´m working!
– Jen

My kitty sitting on my bed…hope this isn’t too much of a closeup.  I just really like these pillows 🙂

This is my golden retriever Ella! We live in Manaus, right beside the amazon rainforest.She thinks that every fluffy place in the house belongs to her.

Your pets on furniture was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who knows my silly fascination with photographing my dog throughout my condo. These weren’t shot with your parameters in mind, but I think they actually may work. Photos are of Otto, my 2-1/2 year old Blue Weimaraner.
– Dana

This is my dog Sophie. She is one regal bitch. I made this slipcover especially for her; note how she blends in not unlike a chameleon. Sophie likes to sit in this chair during the day so she can survey the neighbors with trademark disdain.
– Lauren

The way Sammy relaxes some days; resting his head on the Moroccan side table.
Traci

You might remember my friend Loni’s two cats from the submission a couple of weeks ago [here]. Here’s Raymond again, this time channeling his more eclectic side, choosing the comfy pale rose wing chair in the bedroom.
Julia

Here is a photo of Zelda and Munchie. Zel is adorning my teak dining table and Munchie is making fine use of the floor pillow. In the background is my homemade cat tree/shelf, and a framed Pantone sheet from my Etsy store. In the second photo Zelda is sitting on the built-in cabinet with the cacti, a vintage Delphite FireKing bowl and some dried japanese anemone seedpods.
– Jessica

I thought I’d send you a pic of my cat, Fluffsta posing so beautifully with Obama! And of course on a pile of magazines, her favorite place to be.
Lana

This is Bruno watching the Red Sox game last summer. Like all men he controls the remote!!
– Maria

This is my 14 year old cat called Buffy the Vampire Slayer…the kids chose the name after the obvious and their obsession with the TV series!  We live in Canberra, Australia. She’s incredibly grumpy, loves taking a swipe (well named hey!) and always carrying on to be fed…or lounging about here when she has a perfectly good fur lined basket to sleep in!
Kerry

My Lhasa/Maltese mix, Lily, loves to lounge on just about any piece of furniture she can get on…the comfier the better!
– Michelle

Onida and KiKi.
Tim

Belle and Sebastian named after an obscure rock group relaxing on a Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. “Hey” Sebastian says, “My eyes match the celadon green couch!” We’re here in Atlanta with our Grandmommie because our mommie went to NYC and couldn’t take us with her. Hi, mommie Erin in Brooklyn! We love you!”  – Belle and Sebastian”

I am Brooklyn. I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I am a Ridgeback mix. My mom try’s to keep me off the furniture but when i tilt my head and look at her she melts. Yeah, I know she is a sucker. But it is great, cause I usually get what I want. Best of all is when mom sits next to me in our couch and blogs. I get to sleep as she gets to be inspired! Well now i think I hear someone say “walk” so that means I am out of here.
xx Brooklyn (oh and my mom, Joanna, says Hi)

I LOVE this series you do! And while I love my dog…I love my furniture too. THIS might be where I have to draw the line. Mind you, the chair is a Big Butt Chair…more than 36 inches across! Bo…apparently, is a Big Butt Dane. I did a whole series on the chair on my blog…it was a PIA to re-do!!

My Missi loves sleeping in my bed and we took this nice photo while shooting my cushions.”

After bringing in 2 new male cats in to the house this week, our 5-year old cat “Gata” has never been more competitive. Turning her charm a few more notches, she works it for my camera while chillin’ at her favorite place in the house – the office couch.
– Ypille

I submitted my dog Elvis’s picture for your Pets on Furniture edition and he was up (last) week!  Yey!  But it’s created some jealousy issues with our other Bichon Frisé!  Hehe!  Can I submit her photo for next week?  Like this she can regain her “queen” status within the household?
This is a picture of our 14 year old Bichon Frisé, Bijou.  That’s right, Bijou, French for jewel!  This picture was taken this summer on our wedding day by our talented wedding photographers Davina + Daniel ( http://davinaplusdaniel.com/blog/ ).  I guess Bijou needed to run away from the wedding craze and to do so, she targeted the one couch in the house she’s not allowed to jump on!  I’m sure she didn’t think she would get caught on camera!

I’ve attached four photos of Lucy, (dog), and Scooter, (bunny), hanging out on the sofa together. Lucy and Scooter are buddies and have perfected the art of sitting on the back of the sofa and begging for treats. And I don’t know if you ever include “pets on furniture” VIDEOS, but if you’d like to include my youtube link starring Scooter playing on the sofa (with appearances by Lucy and Scooter’s bunny companion, Baxter) you are welcome to.
– Alison

Here’s a photo of our other bunny, Bernina.
– Kristen

This is Charlie. He loves lounging around on sofas and coffee tables. He loves position himself in strange places on the couch, and wedge himself between pillows. He is such a wonderful puppy, he somehow manages keep the pillows in their place!
– Leanna

“Here’s Oscar relaxing on “his” chair, accompanied by a Lulu DK bolster pillow and sheepskin. He’s four and we live in NYC so he’s a big fan of window watching on all that is going on down below in “his kingdom”!!!”
Lauren

Sometimes my dog Ennis will just sit like this and watch me (sizing me up?) while i’m watching t.v….i’ts kind of unnerving. He’s sitting on my beautiful modern couch from Room & Board. i am so thankful to the sales person who suggested I get this couch instead of another one because it would stand up to frequent use and it sure has. Yes, I really did have an oil painting done of him as Ennis Washington (artist Carol Lew, see background) 😉
– Mike

Here is a picture of our French Bulldogs Barkley and Beau (and their stuffed friend Leroy)!
– Emily

I think this pic is too blurry for your site, but I wanted to share our new family member, Stanley.  We found him on Petfinder.com.  He was at Animal Control in San Jose then a nice group rescued him.  He is wonderful and I think a great advertisement for rescuing mutts!
– Leah

This is Rooke our 6 year old Beagle.  We are doing some remodeling in our kitchen.  Rooke was not loving all the commotion and noise going on.  He was especially afraid of the nail gun:(  I found him in my daughter’s room using her stuffed animal as a pillow! So cute!
– Stephanie, Chris, Tyler, Madison & Rooke

This is Gus, my 95 lb. Lab making himself comfortable in my wicker chair. He always chooses what I would consider the most uncomfortable places to rest, as evidenced by the photo of him lounging on my vintage table on our deck. Don’t ask me how he managed to get up there…it’s a mystery!
Shari

This is our Yellow lab, Hailey and her “little brother” Diego (Weimaraner). Ever since we moved our futon downstairs into the office, they think this is their bed. They love to cuddle up together & fall asleep!

This is a picture of our Bichon Frisé, Elvis.  We rescued Elvis a few months ago and since he’s been with us, it appears he’s been trying to make up for the lost time!  He’s a feisty little boy and loves to jump onto our bed and attack our pillows as soon as we turn away.  Of course, when we’re looking, he likes to sit pretty and pretend he’s a gentleman, as if saying “Pillows, what pillows?”.  This photo was taken by our very talented wedding photographers Davina + Daniel on a casual Sunday afternoon.
– Nataly

this is gizmo.. do pillows count as furniture?? 🙂
– J. Formoso

This is our little princess, Gwen. She’s a one year old Boston Terrier and lives up to the breed’s reputation. She’s a big cuddler and when either myself or my husband are not around, she settles for our couch pillows. Such a cutie!
– Melissa

It’s hard to narrow down my choices as my two boxers LOVE the furniture and they always sleep in crazy positions, but this is by far my favorite. Taken the first week we had Millie home. At 9 weeks old, she couldn’t even barely get up on the sofa and I guess trying so hard wore her out. She slept like that for a good 30mins and boxers are notorious for their snoring.
Here are 2 more to check out.One is a better shot of the room, but it looks almost as if they are trying to blend in. Hehe. Maybe if I don’t see them they won’t have to go in their crates when I leave. 🙂

Oscar, one of your many kitties, peeking over a 10th century Cambodian statue of the Hindu god Shiva

Well, we’ve added to our family- meet Pickle! But Pickle here was mighty jealous when she found out Pepper & Skitchman had BOTH been featured on Pets On Furniture, so she decided to do some posing of her own & wanted me to share with you. Here she is on our newly painted guest-bed.”

Here’s a couple submissions of my beagle mix Charley on my Luna high-back chair

Here is Mickey and Pumpkin getting ready for bed…

If somebody thinks that cats and dogs don’t live in harmony, it’s time to stop watching Looney Tunes cartoon. My black cat Otylia and Frota the airedale terrier dog spend all day together. Sometimes Frota thinks that she is like a cat and climbs high on my flat furniture. Now, they are sitting on yellow commode in front of a tree, which I made from a stripped birch-tree. That decorative tree  I tried to transform my wall, where I will soon hang pictures. Best wishes from Poland!
– Maggie

Here in France we have Pets on furniture too…His  name is Frikadel from the blog: Frikadel and Co The table was handmade just for us with real wood (oak) and old metal to fit our floor it look like a vintage one but it isn’t.”
– Isabelle

Attached is a few pictures of my awesome havanese named Hudson. He is laying on my sofa in a living room which is his favorite spot!

Stretch and Raymond (aka Buddy) here, with some pics from our cool San Francisco loft…

Raymond is more into modernism…

…  while Stretch likes it a bit more eclectic:

This is Luigi, my little Pom. He definitely is spoiled, as you can see!

I’m attaching the picture of our turkish dog Yakamoz (his name means in Turkish “reflection of the moon on the sea”) on our antique armchair…

This is my first time submitting to Pets on Furniture, and granted, the chickens arent usually allowed in the house, but it is 40 deg C in Perth today and they are only five weeks old.  I put them in the lounge room in a crate and my almost four year old son decided they might like to watch tv.  What the…!! I know you dont like close ups but I did include one as they are so little they were a bit hard to see on the chair, which by the way was a junk shop find we had covered in a fantstic Osborne and Little fabric.  It perfectly matches the arches in our Moorish styed house.  The brown chicken is an Isa Brown named Dodo, she is very sweet, the grey-ish one is a Lavender Arucana named Zia (the eggs that she will eventually lay will be blue) and the black one is a Silkie named Lice (yes, like head lice but that is what said almost four year old insists egg yolks are called).
Bridie

This was taken on the first snowfall of the year.  Henry LOVES snow and if he’s not playing in it, he’s watching it fall.  Even though he knows he’s not allowed on the furniture he couldn’t resist the view out the window from our chair.
Danielle

This here is my cat, Hollis. He loves a good Nelson bench.
– Sue

We rescued our 2-year-old Lab, Dublin, about 4 months ago and it didn’t take long for her to settle in and make herself at home on our comfy couches. The dog hair started to get outta control so we put down some soft fleece for her to lay on. She’s so comfy that at times when she actually lays down on the floor it seems odd!
– Karen and Jake

Here’s a picture of Max (L) & Maggie (R) sitting on our wicker furniture.
– Scott

I think what he was trying to say is “Are you serious?” When I kindly asked Fletcher to remove his doggie self from the chair I just finished re-doing, either that or “Get lost lady” I’m not sure…
– Tobi

Spot the cat.
– Catherine

i’d like to bring to your attention my pets on furniture – or rather, my pets on Doofs!! Mika is the Shih-Tzu and Disco is the tabby.  unfortunately, Disco passed away recently from a third-storey fatal fall. we were devastated 🙁  however, we hope his legacy can live on through these images.
