Cats in Costumes. Cute or Cruel?



An estimated $330 million will be spent on pet costumes this Halloween Season. This number has jumped an astonishing 65% since 2010. 

Is this trend cruel or harmless? 

It all depends on how you look at it. Here at Meowingtons we believe you should never force your cat into something they don't want and if they look distressed, to take the costume off your pet. As long as the animal is not being physically hurt, there's no harm in dressing them up for a photo that will last you a lifetime. Cats enjoy making their humans laugh (and cry), so as long as they are ok with it, then so are we!  

Here are some photos of cats who are enjoying their new looks!

    You didn’t address the danger to humans. My cat did not like the costume, and pretty much ripped me to shreds before I even got it on.

    Awww that “lazy bunny” is not enjoying his costume… like my cats the fabric wrapped around his sensitive fur is causing him to fall over. Some cats can handle clothing and/or costumes but most cannot because of sensitivity.
    Poor baby bunny.

    I think my cats are so cute in their clothes but since that can’t stand up and fall over, I simply keep them naked. I love them to much to hurt them for my own enjoyment. ❤️?
