Maybe your horse enjoys wearing a bit of tinsel around its neck or you have a bird with jingle bells on its legs.

This year we are running our Christmas Claws photo competition and we are looking for the best Christmas pet pictures.

Whether your pet is big or small, furry or feathery, we want to see your photos.

A selection of images will be featured in a Christmas Claws supplement where our Ipswich Star and East Anglian Daily Times readers will be able to vote for their favourites.

The winner will receive a special prize!

To enter your pet, complete the attached form and upload a photo. The closing date is December 11.

Photos including your pet’s name, your name and contact number, can also be sent to Hazel Sellers, East Anglian Daily Times, Portman House, 120 Princes Street, Ipswich, IP1 1RS.

The photos will then be published in the week commencing December 18.
