We are well into October right now, which means that Halloween 2020 is definitely upon us. While it’s very cute and fun to find costumes for your kids, it’s just as cute and fun to find the best pet costumes for Halloween!

Luckily, the world of pet holiday wear only continues to grow and become more creative with each passing day, and there are an abundance of options that pets in 2020 just have to try.

It’s a fine line to walk, but if you try hard enough, it’s not impossible to find a costume that you love and that your pet will wear happily.

3. Cowboy

I am forever a fan of a front-walking cowboy costume for a dog or cat because it’s just so funny to see four-legged creatures acting like they have two legs instead.

4. Avocado

Granted, this probably ranked as the best pet costume a few years ago, but it doesn’t look like avocados are going anywhere (well, unless they do because of … environmental concerns). Happily, many a 30-something is still munching on avocado toast, and now you can dress your favorite critter up like your favorite snack!

At first glance, one would think that this is a beige-colored Wolverine costume (no? just me?), but in fact, it’s a beige-colored sloth costume because HELLO: What does the world need more of? Cats and dogs in sloth costumes!
