Back in December we asked for pictures of your Christmassy pets with 46 making it into our special supplement.

See the nominations here: Which festive animal gets your vote in our Christmas Claws competition?

The entries were vast from a guinea pig sat in tinsel to a sleepy cat - but three-year-old Ruby stole the show and received the most votes.

The prize for Ruby and her own owner Lindsay Wright was a photoshoot and a canvas of one of the pictures - as you can see from the picture Ruby is quite happy with the new decoration in their home.
