Celebrating Halloween with Your Cats

The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn… and Halloween is around the corner. Increasingly, pets are seen as family members and pet owners are looking for ways to celebrate holidays with their pets. And Halloween is no different.

Not All Cats Want To Wear a Cat Costume (most probably don’t)

While it can be fun to dress your pet up, please think of your pet’s welfare first over your own entertainment. Dogs are known to be more tolerant of being dressed up. Some cats don’t mind it – I’ve known many that are purrfectly content. But generally, most cats are not a fan… so please, never force your beloved kitty to wear a costume for your own entertainment. If your cat is unhappy, take the costume off.

With that out of the way, we picked out a few costumes from Chewy.com to share with you along with a few other fun ways to celebrate your cat without costumes. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Halloween Cat Costumes & Why We Like Them

Chewy.com has tons of costumes for cats and dogs alike. We went through their vast selection of Halloween cat costumes, many of which are small dog costumes, and selected a handful that we like particularly for cats.

Taco Tuesday Cat Costume

Taco Cat Costume

Taco Tuesday’s anyone? Your cat will look delicious in this tasteful taco costume! We like this one because it doesn’t interfere with your cat’s ears or other parts of the body that could be annoying to your pet. If your cat ever wears a shirt or jacket, we think this is one of the less restrictive costumes available.

Cat Pizza Costume

Pizza anyone? This pizza cat costume has velcro closure around the neck and holes under “the slice” for their front paws. Reviews from cat owners say that it runs slightly large and that they like the velcro. This costume involves putting your cat’s front paws into holes that are below the pizza wedge with the pizza slice acting more as a cape. This one is probably for more laid back cats.

Lobster Cat Costume

If your cat looks good in red, consider this stunning red lobster costume. On one hand, we like that your cat’s paws and body are not constrained. However, if your cat has sensitive ears, you may want to consider another style as this hood may not feel that great on them.

Cat Vampire Costume

If mystery is more your (cat’s) style, go for this vampire get up. We love this costume because it’s lightweight, has a velcro closure and it won’t constrain your cat. Owners who bought the vampire costume for their cat say that their cat liked it and they felt it was good quality for the price.

Your Cat’s Not Into Costumes? No Worries!

If your cat is not into wearing a costume, you’re definitely not alone. Many cats do not enjoy wearing clothes – and they will let you know immediately. If you still want to celebrate Halloween with your kitty, here are some other ideas that don’t involve dressing your cat up!
