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

From a sleepy cat in a sink to a guinea pig sat in tinsel, the range of entries was vast.

You can see the nominations for Christmas Claws here.

From all the entries it was three-year-old Ruby who stole the show and your votes to become the Christmas Claws winner.
