All Wigged Out Over Cat Costumes

I find that the subject of dressing up your cat is quite a controversial one. Some say their cats don't mind it -- and I've spent time with some that honestly don't look like it bothers them in the least. Others say it's not nice to make your cats wear Santa hats and Halloween costumes that look like tacos. What do I think? I'm so glad you asked!

I think it just depends on the cat. We humans should never force our cats to do something they obviously don't want to do. I admit to dolling up my cats from time to time. I've always had a thing about imagining cats doing "people" things and the thought of kitties wearing dresses, wigs and shoes cracks me up to no end. This is why I love vintage postcards -- specifically ones by Alfred Mainzer -- so much.


My cats have a few little pieces of clothing and I usually only place it on them for a photo. They seem to tolerate wigs best. One Halloween, Cosmo looked especially fetching in the orange wig. He kind of looks like Wendy, right? Suddenly I'm hungry for a cheeseburger.

He was patient and wore it for a little while. And then this happened:

I was totally cool with it -- he'd had enough, and I needed to stop thinking about cheeseburgers.

Do you dress your cat for Halloween or any other time? Will you dress your cat up this year? Need inspiration? Pet360 has some fun Halloween costume ideas (most are dog costumes, but they also work for a larger cat). I'm partial to the hammerhead shark costume.

Whatever you choose to do, keep your cat safe and happy, have fun ... and take lots of pictures!
