You lot really are animal crackers!

Since our Santa Paws competition, running with Seaham Vets, launched last week we've had dozens of pictures showing your furry friends in all their festive finery.

Santa Paws 2016: Send us your festive pet pictures

There's still time to get your claws into this photo challenge ... and here's what you need to know.

All we need to know is who you are, where you’re from and what your pets are called and some contact details – it couldn’t be easier!

We will try and feature as many of your pet photos as possible. Judges will then choose a shortlist and you will get to vote for your purrfect picture.

The winner will receive an annual health check and booster for their pet courtesy of Seaham Vets.

Get snapping!
