10 Cute Halloween Costumes For Pets That'll Make You Say "Aw" For Days
It's Halloween month, which means that you need to start planning your costume, if you haven't already. And as important as your own costume is, your pet's is arguably even more pressing. (You're just yearning to earn them that first prize trophy they truly deserve.) Lucky for you, I've rounded up a few of my favorite cute Halloween costumes for pets.
It can be difficult trying to convince your pet to keep their costume on all night long. Speaking from experience, I have a beagle and a chihuahua, and both of them are the absolute worst at playing nice with their costumes. (For example: The chihuahua tears hers off with her teeth and then rips it to shreds so she never has to wear it again.) So, even though I can't enjoy dressing my own dogs up, you bet I'm ready to see other people's dogs (and cats) in these outfits.
From teddy bears to Wonder Woman, every costume looks cuter when it's on a little furry friend. You can even get a multi-holiday costume — who says that your cat can't be dressed as Santa for Halloween, too? If you're still looking for the perfect 'fit for your four-legged bestie for Halloween, maybe the costumes on this list can provide some inspiration.

4. This Lion Is So Incredibly Fluffy

Rawr! This costume sure does pack a seriously cute punch. The set comes with the lion mane and little fluff of hair for the end of your pet's tail — simple, but effective. (I'd be lion if I said that I didn't want you put it on your cat and get your cat to yawn so it looks like they're roaring.)
