ARE you working from home at the moment?

If so, are you being kept company by your beloved pet?

Gazette readers have been in touch to share pictures of their furry, fluffy friends helping - or possibly hindering - them throughout the working day.

Today’s spread also includes pictures of our first tortoise, who is proving a welcome distraction for Rob and Gemma Binns.

If you’d like to share a photo, it’s not too late to join in the fun.
