Get your pets in the festive spirit

With Christmas just days away, we are encouraging readers to send in pictures of their festive pets for our Santa Paws gallery

Marvin from Yateley

Christmas is just around the corner and as trees and decorations go up, our pets are often coerced into the festive spirit, donning antlers, Santa hats and more elaborate costumes.

Here at the newsroom, we want readers to send in their pictures of their Christmassy pets for our Santa Paws gallery.

Whether it’s a dog wearing a hat from a cracker, a cat with a full elf outfit or a bunny wearing bells, we want your pictures to feature in a special picture spread and online gallery.

To inspire you, here’s a picture of Marvin, from Yateley, with some very special antlers.

Email the pictures to by Thursday December 19, to feature in the News & Mail the following week. Mark the email ‘Santa Paws’ and tell us who you are, where you are from and the name of the pet in the photo. We will be publishing some in the paper and in an online gallery.
