23 Best Cat Costume Ideas for Halloween

Deciding on a Halloween costume is a big decision. The even bigger one is deciding how to dress your cat for the occasion — if you’re into that sort of thing.  

Whether or not to dress your cat really comes down to two things – your personal preference and your cat’s comfort.

Some cats feel their best with a shirt on, and some would rather hang out with the neighborhood dog than don that bandana you bought for them. When in doubt, the first and easiest option for a Halloween outfit is to dress your cat au natural. After all, what’s better than their built-in coat?

If your cat is cool with costumes, we’re here to help you narrow down the options to find just the right one for your fur baby. Should you opt for something spooky, or something trendy and adorable?

Keep in mind: Make sure any costume you choose has room for your cat to move comfortably and doesn’t obstruct their whiskers.

We scoured the internet to compile a list of all the BEST cat costumes we found into different categories, so you can find just what you’re looking for! PLUS, we found human-sized costumes to go with, so you can match!
