Cats and dogs in Santa hats for Christmas

These festive animals are all set for a furry Merry Christmas as they pose in Santa hats for an adorable series of snaps.

Animal photographer and King of Cuteness Mark Taylor took the super-cute shots as the young kittens and puppies played together at his Guildford, England, studio.

The 53-year-old managed to capture the images — some of which have been used for greeting cards — by using toys and feathers to distract the young models. (Caters News)
