Now my pup doesn't particularly like dressing up. (I may have tried to see if she wanted to wear one of my shirts once. She said no.) But I have a feeling that if I show her a squirrel costume (yes, they make squirrel costumes for dogs now because that's confusing), she'll be all over it. But even though some dogs and cats don't particularly like being dressed up, if you have a cooperative pet, the options are endless. And besides, I mean, how cute?? So if you decide to pick out a costume with your pet this year, here are 10 ideas to perfectly coordinate with your dog or cat. And yeah, the two of you will win every costume contest. Halloween isn’t just a for humans - let your cat or dog get in on the fun too! Although our pets are more limited in what they can dress up as - being furry and on all fours - there are a surprising amount of cool costumes out there for them at reasonable prices! Most of these costumes are modeled on dogs but of course if you have a similar sized cat, you can attempt (at your own risk) to put the costume on your feline friend as well. Dogs do tend to love the spotlight and to love dressing up much more than cats do - how else can we explain all the dogs in raincoats and sweaters strutting their stuff in the parks? Or the total lack of cats on leashes you see outdoors? The only costume we saw modeled on a cat involved a Halloween themed necktie from Wal-Mart with a skull and crossbones pattern on it but you can always try! For dogs, the list is endless - you can dress your dog up as a squirrel, a hippie, a hotdog, a ttaco, a pumpkin and even The Joker from the Batman movie Dark Knight. Other favorites include a Headless Horseman Pet Rider costume, a black cat costume for your dog and a hilarious looking sailor dog costume! Check out our gallery of the best pet costumes and hurry to the mall before they sell out!
