When planning your Halloween costumes, consider including your feline friends. Some cats tolerate dressing up better than others, so don’t force your animal into wearing something that makes them uncomfortable. They might only be content wearing a costume for a short amount of time, so have a camera ready to capture the moment.
Here are 15 Halloween costume ideas for cats.

Harry Potter Cat
You don’t need polyjuice potion to transform your cat into a feline Harry Potter. All you need is a baby’s sweater, some felt (for the collar and tie), a pipe cleaner shaped into a lightning bolt, and wire bent into glasses.
