7 Adorable Cat Costumes for Halloween 2020

Your cat might not thank you, but your Facebook friends will!

Tags:

We love our cats, but we really love dressing them up in hilarious outfits. Thankfully, there are a plethora of cat costumes to choose from on the internet, each somehow cuter than the one before.

Your cat may not love dressing up for Halloween as much as you love seeing him or her in costume, but you can rest assured knowing these cat costumes are all soft, adjustable, and breathable (and will get tons of love from your Instagram followers). Bonus: Most of the cat outfits below size up, so your dog can dress up, too!

$17.12 (was $22.95), Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Sizes small – XL
  • Coordinating people costumes
  • For other pets too!

Just like Phoebe the cat in the review below, this slip-on cat costume will make your fluff friend embrace his inner pizza kitty. We just hope he likes thick crust!

Promising review: “[My cat] Phoebe’s true self is a pizza. Phoebe can now embrace his true self by being a pizza kitty, thanks to this well-made, nicely detailed costume. This costume was the perfect gift for Phoebe. Phoebe is a boy cat despite his name. His owner is just a huge fan of Friends (the sitcom) and did not realize that he was in fact a boy when he was rescued.”

Frisco Bread Cat Costume

$6.99, Chewy

Why we like it:

  • One size
  • Soft plushy toast
  • Easy to put on and take off

If your kitty is soft and warm like freshly baked bread, this white bread cat costume is perfect for him. It’s one-size fit’s all, but don’t worry, it will fit larger, toast-loving tabbies just fine.

Promising review: “It is very soft fabric with soft foam inside. The bread is comfortable and easy to wear for both my smaller cat and my bigger scaredy cat. The velcro doesn’t get stuck in their fur and is not too loud. I let them sniff it and gave them treats because they were bread. I love this bread!”

Frisco Taco Dog & Cat Costume

$14.99, Chewy

Why we like it:

  • Adjustable neck and belly straps
  • One piece for easy on and off
  • Loaded with tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese

It doesn’t have to be taco Tuesday for your feline to rock a loaded tortilla. Packed with all the your favorite taco toppings, this cat costume will make you hungry for Mexican food.

Promising review: “This was reasonably priced, arrived quickly and looked absolutely adorable. It’s really well made and didn’t have a head piece which made it really easy to put on. I ordered a small for my 12 pound cat. He even got used to it and ran around and played as normal. Would highly recommend it!

QBLEEV Lovely Octopus Pet Cat Cosplay Hat

$16.69, Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Easy to put on and take off
  • Adjustable
  • Soft felt

One look at the googly eyes on this cat octopus costume will instantly boost your mood. Your cat’s mood? Maybe not so much. But it will all be worth it when your count your Instagram hearts after a long day of cat selfies.

Promising review: “This ‘costume’ is so cute. [My cat] Jessica doesn’t approve, but I do! I used this to represent ‘Ursula’ from The Little Mermaid, and it definitely served its purpose. It is very durable, I highly recommend it.”

Frisco Snail Dog & Cat Costume

cat costumes

$14.99, Chewy

Why we like it:

  • Separate head and back pieces
  • Elastic for comfortable fit
  • Six sizes to choose from

Is your cat always sleeping, slowly creeping around, or just perpetually unenthused? A snail costume might be the perfect fit for her mood. The antennae are separate from the body, so you can dress your tabby in one or both pieces. (Either way, it shouldn’t be hard to catch her!)

Promising review:“I got this to match the giraffe costume (our favorite animals). It’s so cute! It has a way to keep their ears from being flattened or hurt and fits the cats well, very adjustable and easy to put on. Also not too heavy!” 

OMG Adorables Lion Mane Costume for Cat

cat costumes

$11.99, Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Pullover wig
  • Fits most cats and small dogs
  • Lightweight

With this cat costume, you won’t know where your cat’s head ends and the lion’s mane begins. Which, if your tabby thinks himself a king, is the purrfect wig for a feline that knows who’s boss.

Promising review: “This is my all time favorite amazon purchase so far. Whomever came up with this is a genius! It arrived quickly and in good condition. It was easy to put on, easy to tighten without harm and it even came with a little tuft for the tail! The mane bugged her a bit at first, but she got used to it really quickly and soon became the center of attention 🙂 This thing is amazing. BUY IT!”

Idepet Funny Pet Clothes Pirate Cat Costume

cat costumes

$10.99, Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Breathable
  • Soft for your kitty
  • Costume and hat are separate

This sassy pirate cat costume is made to look like your four-footed friend is standing tall, with arms and legs to match his outfit equipped for a battle at sea.

Promising review: “I have gotten more joy and laughs from this than I care to say. My 8.5 lb kitten was a tad too small for the medium but hopefully he should grow into it! Be sure to dole out the treats, they deserve it!
