Each year we launch our Santa Paws initiative where readers are invited to send in festive photos of their pets.
This year we've been inundated of festive photos of cats, dogs, guinea pigs and even a tortoise.
We've loved seeing your photos and we've put together our final batch of festive pet photos for Santa Paws 2023.
We can't wait to see all your festive pet photos again next Christmas.
