banner for Critter Holiday Portrait contest

Spreading holiday cheer is more fun with small animals, or so it would seem after viewing all the creative and fun entries to the Critter Holiday Portrait contest. From posing with Santa, to posing as Santa (or reindeer or elves) to checking out decorations to raiding stockings and more -- all were part of the entries. Participating species included rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas and rats.

Many thanks to all who participating in the holiday portrait potpourri.

The overall winning photo in all this holiday fun? That goes to the guinea pig trio of Mojo, Cookie and Missy. Congratulations!

Runners-up accolades go to Pencil the hamster and Rebel the ferret. Kudos to you!

Rebel the ferret.

"Rebel just loved to play in the tree. His favorite ornaments were the ones that sparkled the most. He would snatch up any ornament he could and run as fast as he could across the room to stash it."
