Learn More About the Best-Selling Cat Halloween Costumes

As long as the outfit is designed specifically for pets, is easy to put on and remove and is made from pet-safe materials, there is virtually no limit to the types of cat Halloween costumes you can buy. Depending on your cat’s personality and tolerance, they may prefer t-shirt-style cat outfits that hug their body or cute cat costumes with more to them—like two-piece options with hats or headpieces.

You can absolutely put your pet in cat Halloween costumes, but be sure to pay attention to their demeanor. If they change their behavior, paw, meow or otherwise seem uncomfortable, check that you have not put the costume on wrong and make sure it’s not too tight. If your cat resists the outfit, you should remove it and find something more to their liking. There are lots of simple options like kerchiefs, ties and bowties and harness-style choices that don’t impede sight or movement.

Be sure to choose the correct size and look for options that are easy to get on and off. Never force a clothing item and always observe your cat’s behavior once the piece is on and secured correctly.
