IS your pooch or kitty worth showing off to the rest of the world?

Pet of the Week is a new feature starting in next week's Mercury. We want pictures of your pets to show our readers how adorable they are.

If you have a fabulous feline, handsome hamster, glamorous guinea pig, or good looking goldfish, we want to hear from you.

Simply answer the questions below and send them to laura.bagshaw@archant.co.uk along with a picture of your pet - which must be in a jpeg format and at least 500kb - and a contact telephone number.

We will try and feature as many pets as possible.

We need to know the name of your pet, breed, age, likes, dislikes, and the owners' names.
