FROM doting dogs and cuddly cats to bonny bunnies and huggable hamsters, pets are an enormous part of our lives. Whether it’s a four-legged friend, brightly-coloured bird or fascinating fish, they become part of the family, a cherished part of our day-to-day lives during lockdown.

To celebrate the role pets play, we’d love to see your pictures and put them firmly in the spotlight. Thanks to those who have already sent in pictures. Send in your photos here and we'll feature them in the paper and online as soon as we can.
