It’s almost Halloween, y’all! And as much as I do not enjoy this very day, despite an affinity for candy corn and also pumpkins, I do wait all year for it to come around so I can put Eli into costumes and thus fill him with contempt toward me over and over and over again. It never gets old! Like, it just never gets old. Have you ever dressed up your cat or dog for Halloween? I guarantee it will improve your quality of life.
To guide you and your pet through the upcoming spooky season, I’ve compiled this very post with some help from the fuzzy friends of Team Autostraddle, and also Stef, who loves putting her cat in costumes the way I love putting my dog in costumes. First, I’m gonna show you how cute all of the Team Autostraddle pets look when they’re dolled up as tiny characters, and then I’m gonna recommend some timely and also timeless costume ideas for you very own much-loved critters. Enter at your own risk! Things are about to get adorable.

Stef and Carmen’s Halloween Costume Picks for Pets
A note before we begin: Stef informed me in the process of putting this post together that she does not shop in the cat section for her cat’s costumes, because, and I quote, “these suck.” I have to agree. Most costumes that fit small dogs will fit a cat, so most of these are for dogs but really also for cats because honestly nobody is checking. As Stef so eloquently said, “the market’s fucked up but get your cat a good dog costume.”
