Cute Alert! Adorable Pet Costumes Your Dog or Cat Will Flip For

Halloween is now firmly on the horizon, and while that fact has many of us thinking of ghosts, goblins, pumpkins and (real talk) candy, pet owners everywhere are also rejoicing. Because if you're a dog or cat owner who is comfortable embarrassing your little furball like I am, much of your Halloween excitement can be summed up in two words: PET COSTUMES.

Slide the hat's elastic band over your pet's muzzle, being careful not to hurt their ears. Check that the chin strap isn't too tight; if it is, make adjustments. Place neckerchief around their neck, fastening the ends.

If your pet tends to hang out at the dinner table too much, this French chef costume would be a perfect choice. Bon appetit!

Your pet gets the Island vibe for Halloween this year with this fun Rastafarian wig and hat. Yarn, a premade crochet doily, and a few more materials are all you need for this great costume.

Turn up your Bob Marley Pandora station and make this groovy rasta costume. There's Smelly Cat and Grumpy Cat, but I think we should all work on making Rasta Cat a thing.

Your pet takes flight for Halloween with this clever bat wing costume. Felt, pipe cleaners and a bit of Velcro are all you need to dress your furry friend as a winged bat for Halloween. This costume is not only easy to craft it's also lightweight so it's comfortable for your dog or cat.

I'm usually terrified by flying bats, but when the bat wings are plunked on the back of an adorable kitty kat, I suddenly think bats are adorable.
