25 Cat Costumes for Halloween

Posted on Oct 14 2015 - 6:37pm by Susan Bewley

How many of you struggle trying to find the perfect Halloween costume for your cat? When my kitty Lucie was younger, I tried finding a Halloween costume for her that was not only cute, but she wouldn’t mind wearing. After awhile, I eventually gave up and went with a little jester collar with bells, which really wasn’t too amazing. It was cute, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t what we were looking for – at all. Today, many more companies are starting to come out with costumes for cats, making life even easier for pet parents like us.

Knowing that some of you are looking for some adorable costumes for your favorite cat, I thought I would share with you some of the cutest cat costumes I have seen this year. Some of these Halloween costumes for cats are simple DIY projects, while others are costumes that can be purchased on Amazon. Best of all, all of these costumes are super cute! Make sure to tell us what you think of our list of 25 Halloween Costumes for cats below. As well, feel free to tell us what you cat is doing this Halloween!

    Very cute costumes. When I had a cat she would not STAND to have anything on her.

    I am definitely a dog person. I feel cats have an evil look to them, but I did have a friend who had a super sweet and soft cat that for some reason did take a liking to me. That being said some cats are cute especially when I am looking at their pictures be in online or on a calendar. The groovy rasta cat did make me chuckle.

    I love the lion the best. These are just adorable and I know my cats or dog would never let me do this.

    My cats say ‘thats just adorable but after the costume comes off they will make sure wet cat hack is stepped on in the middle of the night’
    Someow I dont think this would be a hut and the cat would have to be asleep, or sedated to wear these bit it is cute.

    Lol…some of these are just too cute it makes me giggle when seeing cats in costumes. I tried dressing my cat up well lets just say it didn’t go as planned and I was left with a scratch on my hand. But apparently my dog loves to get dressed up and nails painted. My pets are weirdos lol

    Haha these are so fun!! Sharing them with my cat loving sister in law!! Although her cat would probably rip her face off if she put a costumer on it!! Love the spider!! Could you imagine the reaction of seeing a huge spider run down the hall lol?!!?!

    those are so cute but there is no way my almost 30 lb cat would let anybody put anything like that on him,the 5lb dog yes but not that cat

    These are adorable,but my cat would kill me if I tried to put a costume on her.

    These are so cute but the lion mane is my favorite—My cat goes crazy just with a collar on I could never get her to wear anything such as these. Thanks for sharing the fun, I love them

    These are all TOO cute! I wish my cat would let me dress her up!!!!

    I was really surprised there are so many cat costumes out there. I have never seen a cat that let you put a costume on them!

  27. Kristyn October 16, 2015 at 2:07 pm - Reply

    This is absolutely hilarious and adorable. You always see and hear about people dressing up their dogs but not their cats. I strongly doubt my cat would even let me try to put her in a costume lol!!

  28. Debbie Welchert October 16, 2015 at 2:32 pm - Reply

    What cute costumes. I don’t have a cat but I have a dog that is about the size of a cat. She would really look so cute in the Lion’s Mane costume.

    too cute ,i wonder what the cat is thinking

  30. Anita Duvall October 16, 2015 at 6:53 pm - Reply

    These are the cutest things. Wish we could have a costume for all of ours, but since we take in rescues, we now have 7 cats!

    Cat torturers!! LOL Put it on them, quick, take a pic. That’s all you will get. They won’t move.

  32. Jodi Hoppe Wresh October 16, 2015 at 8:05 pm - Reply

    All these are so cute and I definitely want to try some for my two cats, but getting them to keep something on is a whole other story, they do not like it. Lol

    These photographs are so beautiful, they belong, collected together, in a coffee table-style book! Animals in costumes make everyone smile. These would even make for cute YouTube videos! Cats are the perfect subjects for Halloween costumes, being witch’s sidekicks and all (wink!)

    Even though I like dogs better, these costumes are pretty cute!

    Some of these are so cute and would suit several of my cat’s personalities, but I don’t think I could get them to wear any of them.

    They are all so cute but I like the Sunflower the best. My cat Lucy would not let me near her with any of this stuff, I have a hard time getting a flea collar on her,

    So adorable in their costumes, but pretty sure I would be killed in my sleep if I tried this.

    These are really cute. I love the kitty with antlers! I can’t imagine mine being still long enough to put them on.

    I love the cat costumes! I know some cats that have no problem wearing costumes, while other cats won’t have any part of it! (my kitty was one of the latter group! :P)

    omg, how cute! The lion costume fits some of the cats well! I have to show my friends with cats, thanks.

    Oh my goodness….those are the cutest cat Halloween costumes ever!!! My only other thought is how they got those cats to sit still and not tear off the costumes. My cats and dog have been wildly uncooperative with my costume efforts.

    my cat’s would never stand it! they don’t let me but anything on them.

    These are adorable and these cat’s must be more tolerant than mine! I love the Moose costume, and it’s so perfect for New Hampshire Halloweens. Now who wants to come put that on my cat? lol

    None of these cats look happy. I get that it’s cute but cats don’t like wearing funny outfits. Stop people. Just stop.

    There are so many cute costumes. I really like the Super Mario costume, The bat wings for a black cat and the lion wig.

    Hahahah! Love the totoro cat bus. We have two cats and I would just love to dress them up in these. Adorable.

    OMG… these are adorable. My cat would be moving around and I wouldn’t ever get one on her.

    These are great. I love the Sunflower Hat with Glasses, the Cat Elk Costume, the Peacock Costume with Hat, and the Lion Mane Wig. Thank you for sharing this post.

    Bahahaha!! The fez is too cute! I don’t know what is funnier the look on the cats face or the hat. ^-^ My cat would take off a limb if I did this too him. But since I put up with a lot from him it might be worth it for one hilarious pic. ^-^

    These are fantastic costumes! Now, how to get kitty in one without him killing me?

    OMGoodness, so cute. Leonardo would never submit to having anything put on his head though. He would bite me first.

    I love the Lion Mane costume! That is absolutely my favorite. Now…I wonder how many scratches I end up with trying to put it on my cat. lol But somehow, if I succeeded and could get his picture…I think it would be worth the scratches. lol

    LOL> I dressed my Momma cat up once and she did not like it at all. These are cute but there is no way she would have anything to do with it.
