Wish your dogs a happy Howl-oween and your cats a purr-fectly spooky holiday with these pet Halloween costumes! Why dress up your pet, you ask? Well, for starters, you can have fun coordinating your canine or feline's new look with your kids' Halloween costumes or your own Halloween costume for a matchy-matchy trick-or-treating adventure you won't soon forget. Just imagine the resulting photos! But even if you're just letting Fido or Fluffy steal the show totally solo, your neighbors and friends are sure to take note—and we have a feeling you won't regret dressing them to the nines. Oh, and do we even have to mention that dog Halloween costumes are just plain hilarious and will simultaneously melt your heart? And how can you keep a straight face when your cat pops out from under the bed looking like a piece of toast, or not want to give your dog an extra treat when he or she is wandering around in a hula girl outfit? Whether you decide that your furry friend is worth a longer DIY weekend project or you'd rather quickly purchase an outfit online, there's something on our list for you. These simple cat and dog Halloween costumes will ensure your sidekick is the best-looking, four-legged creature on the block.
