Is It Okay For Cats To Wear Halloween Costumes?

If you think your cat won’t be impressed with the whole costume idea a good solution would be to meet him halfway (c'mon kitty) and try a headband or some headgear instead.

For those of you lucky enough to have an obedient kitty, you will know if your cat will take kindly to being dressed in a costume, even if it is just for a short time.  They are just fun after all.

It is impossible not to smile, in a tortured sort of way, looking at these kitties  Some of them are just downright funny and others are cuteness personified.

Loving the color coordination this kitty has happening

Halloween Headgear For Cats

The design of this hat is clever.  It is not a standalone hat as such - the actual hat secures under the chin however it has a section of fabric at the back that extends from under the brim down to the neck. It is not noticeable from the front of the photo.

The strap to secure the headgear is adjust able and ties. It fits a neck girth from 10.2" to 11.8"

Cat Rabbit Hat

This cute little bunny hat is adjustable for different sizes. Note: This hat does cover the ears.  Monitor how your cat reacts to this. I think we can all agree that a little bit of fun or a short time is okay but not if it causes any distress.

Unicorn Headgear

This product is lightweight, a plus factor. Note: If your cat is a breed with a narrow face it may not ft well.

This cute Unicorn costume  comes in two sizes. It is made from soft cotton. The straps around the abdomen and neck are secured with Velcro.

Halloween Bandana

A bandana is a great choice for simplicity for you and the cat.  It is easy to put on and take off.

More Of The Best Cat Halloween Costumes For Cats

Bolbove Pumpkin Costume For Cats

The fabric is polyester fastened with adhesive hook and loop. There are spaces for the cat's ears at the side of the hat. The hat is separate to the pumpkin cape.  

The leaves around the neck area are part of the cape not the hat. The cat could wear one or the other if desired.

This is a super little costume transforming your cat into a witch or a wizard in seconds.  It is a plush material so not irritating for the cat.

The package includes one hat and one cloak. The hat has a drawstring so that the size can be altered to suit.  It comes in two different sizes.

Small/medium: Measurements: back length 13", neck girth 11-14", chest girth 18- 20"                 Medium Size: Measurements: back length 16", neck girth 16-20", chest girth 24- 28" 

It is recommended that this costume be hand washed. That should take all of about two minutes. However it is worth taking care of something you have paid for. It is surprising how often you find a need for a costume or can lend one to someone else.                                        

Doctor and Nurse Cat Costume

There is universal agreement that this is just the funniest costume.  Some people had an issue with the size.  there are different size options and quite specific measurements given so make sure you do a quick measure first.  

If you have two cats, a doctor and a nurse would be a good option.  I was laughing while reading a review where someone had done just this.  They laughed for about two minutes before they could even take a photo.

Let's face it we all need a good laugh at the moment.

This pirate costume looks as cute as pie on cats. 
The attention to detail is what makes it really stand out. The measurements given are quite specific as this costume does really need to fit.  It is worth taking the time to take the measurements before ordering.

The suit is made from soft cotton so it is comfortable and washable.  The closures are Velcro so a plus for ease of getting and and taking off.

You need a sense of humor for this costume because it is just meant to be fun. It comes with the territory that you will have to allow your cat to be the boss when in costume.

To color coordinate it will looks its finest on a ginger cat or a cat with ginger markings.The hairpiece fits with elastic under the chin.

The collar and tie are secured with Velcro so this is an easy on and off costume. The fit is for an average size cat or small dog but approximately 10 or 11 lbs is a size guide for a comfortable fit.

Big Spider Costume

This costume is made from soft felt. It can be hand washed if necessary.

Pizza Slice Pet Suit

What can you say about a pizza costume for a cat? It is super cool, very funny and will certainly get attention. 

It is a clever design as the body is a jumpsuit which has a Velcro fastening at the neck. The pizza slice is attached to the jumpsuit. It comes in four different sizes however the small and medium sizes will suit cats.

Small is 11 inches from neck to tail, chest 17 inches and neck 12 inches.
Medium is 15 inches from neck to tail, chest 20 inches and neck 15.5 inches.

Obviously these sizes are going to be somewhat arbitrary. As a rough guide size, medium fits a 12 to 15 lb cat without being constricting.

I don't know how kitty feels about having a spider around his neck but he won't know if you don't tell him.  

The whole costume just slides over the head in one go so easy on and easy off.

It fits a neck girth  girth from 9.5" to 11.5" I would be erring on the side of caution here and going for a fit that is one the loose side rather than the tight side. 

It is soft and easily wearable.

Cat lovers who purchase these costumes do so for fun, knowing the cat will not tolerate the costume idea for too long.

Take a photo when your cat is wearing the costume so that you can enjoy the occasion even if it didn't last too long. Of course you may have the most placid kitty who is happy to wear a costume and pose for photos. πŸ™‚
