Halloween costumes for dogs have been around for a while. Halloween costumes for cats, on the other hand, have only started gaining popularity in recent years.
Maybe because have you ever tried dressing a cat?
The little headgear Halloween getups are cute, but I almost lost a hand trying to put one of those on my Mr. Meow once. I’m not about to attempt wrangling him into any kind of full body get up. He knows what the jugular is and he’s not afraid to go for it! I’d like to live through this Halloween, thank you very much.
However, if you have a feline with a higher nonsense tolerance than mine and you’d like to dress your cat up for Halloween, here’s some costumes you might want to consider:
I’d so get this for Mr. Meow, since he is such a little devil, but notice how there’s no cat model to show it off? I’m sure he’s laughing somewhere while the human stylist who tried to dress him is recovering in a hospital somewhere…
Another fitting one for Mr. Meow. He’s always trying to suck my blood…
This one’s almost too cute to be named “evil”…but I know that it would bring out the evil if I tried to stuff either of my cats in it!
Murphy is laughing at this one. “Bandanas are for dogs, Mom, not cats. You humans can sure be silly sometimes!”
Between the costume’s name and the pic that goes with it…’nuff said!
In case you want to turn your cat into a real life Puss ‘N Boots!
I quipped on HJ’s Facebook page that there was something wrong with dressing a dog in the Cat in the Hat pet Halloween costume. This cat looks even more miffed to be dressed as a dog –and a cute little puppy at that! (When I Tweeted about the Cat in the Hat costume I joked: “Crossing dressing pets…on the next Springer!” If they could only talk, I’m sure Springer’s producers could really make a show out of such a topic!)
