Halloween Fun for Cats: 20-Pack Furry Mouse Toys

Halloween Costumes for Cats

While we admit that most cats probably wouldn't tolerate wearing a full costume for more than a few minutes, let alone all of Halloween, the outfits and costume pieces featured here are perfect in short bursts and make fun props for holiday photos. Here are some of our favorite Halloween and cosplay looks for kitty:

1 Adorable Cat Halloween Lion Mane Photo Prop

2 Cute Peacock Cat Costume With Hat

This is a cute two-piece costume outfit. A blue harness-style top comes with a large peacock tail. The separate headpiece has a peacock head on top.

3 Santa Hat With Beard For Cats

7 Super Cute Bat Wings Costume Accessory for Cats

Found on Amazon

This simple piece is among the most likely to be tolerated by kitty for the longest amount of time -- especially if kitty is already used to wearing a collar or harness. Like a typical harness, this bat wing costume piece has a strap around the neck and an additional strap across the chest for added security. Both straps are adjustable with Velcro -- be sure to keep kitty supervised when wearing this costume. Looks awesome especially on black or tuxedo cats.

Great Variety of Cat Carrier Backpack Styles

Back in 2016, we highlighted a great hands-free cat carrier in the shape of a backpack that made bringing kitty to vet appointments, on vacation, or other outings an easy affair. Today the market is full of several different styles of cat carrier backpacks for a variety of uses, cat sizes, and levels of comfort for both kitty and backpack-wearer. Here are some of the different styles of backpacks available for transporting cats.

Full-View Plastic Bubble Cat Carrier Backpack

Found on Amazon

This unique pet carrier includes a full transparent window at the back to give your cat the most open view possible. Air holes on the sides and along the bottom provide plenty of ventilation. The backpack portion of the pack includes comfortable wide straps and an additional strap to secure the pack across the top of the chest for a less bumpy rider. Note the size of the pack to be sure your cat will be comfortable in this unique carrier style.

Bubble-View Secure Pet Carrier Backpack

Found on Amazon

This style of backpack cat carrier might give some cats a more secure feeling, with a small port-hole "space capsule" bubble viewing area. Air holes along the sides and bottom are ample for good air flow, and the backpack straps are comfortably wide and adjustable. This bubble view pack is made of stylish-looking faux leather. 

Convertible Cat Backpack & Rolling Case

Found on Amazon

This versatile case can be carried on a person's back, or as a piece of rolling luggage. Having this option is great for airline travel and other times when switching from a backpack to rolling luggage would be handy. A full mesh panel in the back allows ample airflow and viewing pleasure for your pet. Reviewers praise this carrier in particular as being ideal for air travel.

Horizonal Orientation Pet Carrier Backpack

Found on Amazon

This wide-body pet carrier is different from other backpacks because it has a wider, more traditional pet carrying case profile. It's still comfortable to carry on the back, with adjustable straps. This carrying case also has a suitcase strap on the back to secure to a rolling luggage handle for another easy way to transport your pet. Several vented windows allow for great air flow and viewing ports for kitty.

Comfortable Cat Backpack with Expansion Back

Found on Amazon

Carry kitty where you need to go with this comfortable backpack carrier. The wide adjustable arm straps, waist strap, and chest strap allow for a secure ride for kitty. This carrier is shaped like a traditional backpack cat crate, but has another great feature: an expanding back! While waiting at the vet, resting between flights, or other times of pause during travel, expand this case out with the folded mesh extension for even more room for kitty to move around. This great feature allows kitty to be extra comfy when not on the move.

Fun Cardboard Cat Playhouses

A cardboard cat playhouse can be a fun and temporary addition to your home, offering a novel piece of furniture for hiding, napping, and play. Cardboard furniture may not last forever, but it is usually affordable, and may have a fun theme using unique printing or shapes. Because they aren't meant to be durable, some cats have fun eventually destroying their cardboard cave by scratching or biting. Here are some funny novelty cardboard cat houses.

Fish Kiosk Cardboard Cat Playhouse
