While a snap of your pet looking adorable while snoozing peacefully might go down well on Instagram, everyone knows that capturing a cute picture of your pet is easier said than done when they never want to sit still.
And now a contest is honouring the lively pets that keep their owners entertained with their love of pulling faces and cheeky expressions.
The contest, run by Aldi, received 1,500 entries and Jet, from Scotland, took top prize with a photo of him rolling around on the carpet while staring into the camera lens.
He's now set for a starring role as the new face of Aldi's pet food and is in the running to start in the range's Christmas ad, as well as winning a hamper of treats.
While Jet snatched the overall title, other pets were named winners for Scotland, England and Wales respectively.
Here Femail reveals the best entries, including a happy hamster and a cheeky chihuahua.
