Cat in a Hat
Dressing your cat in a fan-favorite character’s costume is a great way to celebrate Halloween. Here are some ideas you can try out!
Why not dress up your cat as the entertaining and mischievous cat from Dr. Seuss? This infamous feline is one of the most iconic literary characters, making him an excellent choice for a Halloween costume idea. To make this happen, all you have to do is put on your cat’s favorite hat or purchase one online. Just be sure that it fits well enough so that he won’t bat at it with his paws! The only other accessory you need would be a red and white striped tie if possible. These items will help complete the ensemble perfectly!
This is just one of a million ideas when it comes to pop culture. There are tons of costumes for your cat out there and you should dress your pet in something you like. Always make sure they are also comfortable in it so that they don’t get frustrated.
Cat with a mustache
A cat with a mustache is a playful cat, and will definitely bring some laughter to your Halloween party. All you need is a little bit of mustache wax for cats, which can be purchased at an online or local pet store. If desired, brush the cat’s eyebrow hair up towards the center of their forehead so that it looks like they have eyebrows as well!
Cat in an astronaut suit
Imagine your kitty in an astronaut cat costume that matches your, complete with the white cat spacesuit and a helmet! She’d be so cute in your dream space cat outfit. You can get this cat Halloween costume at any pet store or online through retailers.
A black cat would look amazing dressed up as an astronaut for Halloween. If you want to take things one step further I think that adding some whiskers on the mask will really make them stand out more in photos. Just draw them on with eyeliner before you head out trick or treating.
You can even give it creative names for the night like
- Space cat
- Laser cat
- Meaowateor (like Meteor)
- Neil Catstrong
Cat as a pirate wench
A cute little pirate outfit for cat lovers to dress up their cat for Halloween. Leather booties, eye patch, and pirate hat combo that is very easy to assemble!
First, you should measure the head circumference of your cat (for hats/helmets). After that, cut out the fabric in a circle shape slightly bigger than the measurements you took from your cat’s head size. A good rule of thumb is about an extra inch on all sides should work fine.
Create two leather straps using simple stitches like whip stitch or backstitch where one strap would tie around his neck and another strap will be used for tying under chin area, adjust accordingly if needed. Make sure both are at least 12 inches long so there’s room when adjusting before stitching them together with another piece of leather string.
You’ll have the most dangerous feline pirate on the seven seas with this cat Halloween costume!
Cat dressed up like Dracula’s bride
A vampire cat is a perfect choice for Halloween cat costumes. It won’t be hard to accomplish this look, too! Here are some simple steps.
Purchase a red wig for the cat at your local costume shop or online retailer. Be sure it is an appropriate size by placing it on top of its head before purchasing it. A cat’s ears should not fit inside the wig cap but rather rest upon the top of them instead. Adjustments can always be made later with safety pins if need be after you get home from buying the cat costume wigs.
Find a long black dress that would fit around your cat’s neck and waistline comfortably without constricting movement in any way (or just buy one). The length of the hemline will also depend on how far down your cat’s legs the dress needs to go.
A cat that is wearing a dress and has its hair done up nicely

It’s all about how you want to look at them on the night of Halloween. There are different styles that will make your cat into one adorable creature this Halloween.

Halloween is a fun holiday and you should include your pets as well. Giving them cute costumes that match yours is the best way to go about it. These are just a few cat costume ideas but there are plenty more. Be creative and make sure the cat is not bothered by it!
