Now don't get us wrong, we love kitties and puppies, and as a general rule, enjoy seeing people's furry friends featured in real estate photos. However, in the case of this particular listing, for a cottage in Northwest Pasadena designed by Charles and Henry Greene, we'd have preferred to see less of the resident cat and more of the actual house. Commissioned in 1895 for a prominent local banking family, the Beaux Arts-influenced cottage is among the oldest extant examples of work produced by the Greene brothers' partnership. Per the listing, the 2,300 square foot residence features four bedrooms and two and three-quarters baths, with "upgrades including copper plumbing, electrical, central air & heat and hard wood floors." Last sold in 2003 for $615,000, it's now asking $550,000.
