by Angela Andaloro

October is here, and that means the countdown to Halloween has officially begun! Halloween can be a lot of fun for families as they explore different costume possibilities and decorate for the occasion.

Many families even get their pets in on the holiday fun. When it comes to buying costumes for your pets, it’s been pretty limited to costumes for cats and dogs. PetSmart has decided to expand its pet line for Halloween, adding costumes for guinea pigs to the mix. Because why not?

Now, some guinea pigs are not strangers to dressing up for Halloween. Some very crafty owners have custom-made their pet costumes for years. For the less creatively inclined of us, PetSmart is offering nine different costume options for the little critters.

Of course, the costumes match today’s trends, so your kids can theoretically match their pets’ costumes to their own. The costumes range from $3.99 to $6.99 and are available in stores and online.

Some people love Christmastime. Others live for Thanksgiving. For a growing amount of families around the country, Halloween has become the holiday of choice. It’s fun to take on a new personality, if only for a day.

Dressing up can be a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. Some families go all in on Halloween, getting the family pets in on the fun. Halloween costumes for pets can be seriously adorable, but the selection is pretty narrow.

Costumes that are available for purchase are usually reserved for dogs and cats. We love our four-legged friends dearly, but they aren’t the only pets a family might have. That’s where PetSmart has stepped in to close the gap.

Dressing up a guinea pig for Halloween isn’t completely new (at least for some pet parents). For years, crafty owners have been making their own creative costumes for their rodents when no commercial costumes were available. Now these guinea pigs have options.
