For many, Halloween is one of the best times of the year, full of wicked frights, tasty treats, and lots of fun. And, when you’re a pet parent, your haunted holiday can become even more special as you celebrate Halloween with your pets. Check out our “purrrfectly” spooky activities and more that are sure to leave you and your furry companions howling with delight.
If you’re like a lot of avid Halloween fans, then you start planning out your costume months in advance. But, what about your feline friend or canine companion? Finding the perfect costume for both of you can really help you stand out from the crowd.
The best part is, you don’t have to spend tons of dollars either. You can DIY some fantastic pet owner and pet costume combos. Here are a few ideas to help get your creative juices flowing and motivate you to get a little crafty:
If your pet isn’t a fan of being dressed up, no problem. They can still take part in the fun without having to wear an outfit. For example, get creative based on your pup’s breed. You can be Dorothy and Toto, a firefighter with a Dalmatian, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, or any other famous duo with a dog.
If you can’t get your kitty to keep on their costume, go with an idea that allows them to participate without dressing up. You can be Hermione Granger with her pet Crookshanks, Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers’ movie franchise (holding his villainous cat, Mr. Bigglesworth), or the classic witch with a black cat (just don’t switch things up).
Of course, if going the DIY route just isn’t for you, you can always purchase some excellent pet costumes. It’s all about finding what works best for you and your furry friend.
Once you’ve got your costumes perfected, it’s time to mix in some tasty Halloween treats. A quick and easy way to give your pet a themed snack is to spread canned pumpkin onto the Neat-Lik Mat or stuff it inside the Rolly Cannoli. Both dogs and cats can enjoy pureed pumpkin, but make sure it is plain. Don’t use pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with extra ingredients and tons of sugar.
You can also whip up some yummy DIY dog treats or fillup a DIY black cat goody bag with delicious tidbits for your kitty.
You can make Halloween extra fun by engaging in some fun activities with your pet. Watch a scary movie with your dog or cat, create a DIY haunted dog house or cat condo like this idea from Chewy, or take your pal trick-or-treating. But, no matter how you choose to spend the time with your fur baby, always be safe.
Spending Halloween with pets is loads of fun, and you’re only limited by your imagination. For more great ideas on how to get more involved with your fur friends, check out the rest of our blog. It’s loaded with ideas about Halloween, other holidays, and just everyday fun and safety tips for you and your pets. Have a pet-tastic Halloween, and don’t forget to take lots of pictures.
