In pictures: Animals who know winter is here

Eleven cute animals who have braced themselves for the winter months.

MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE they don’t typically wear clothes, it’s cold outside, the days are shorter or getting up in the morning seems like hell. Whatever the reason, these animals hate winter.

To avoid Mr Frost, some have positioned themselves on top of a radiator, swearing not to move again until sometime in mid-spring, others have dressed for the occasion in wool and cashmere, while some have adorned fancy dress to distract themselves from the fact that winter is here.

So, here they are, 11 cute animals who have braced themselves for the winter months:
