They're sweet, they're sassy, they're shy, they're goofy. Cats have so much personality packed into their fluffy bodies, it would honestly be a shame not to dress them up for Halloween. (Hello, they could even match the family dog. Think of the photo opportunities!)

So, if you're looking for a sign to style your pet, this is it. Here are the 15 best Halloween costumes for cats that you can buy right now, plus some tips for getting the perfect fit.

How to Measure Cats for Costumes

Once you land on a Halloween costume, it's time to break out the soft tape measurer. Start by measuring your cat's body length, around their chest and then across their neck. The suit should be a little roomy, with enough space for two fingers.

P.S.: You should also consider how your cat moves throughout the day. If they're fairly active or can't tolerate fabric for long, then you might want to opt for Halloween accessories, like bat wings or a ruff collar.
