Pets Celebrate Halloween too!

I’m here to tell you that us Cats like to celebrate Halloween and I’m sure dogs do to. Petco took a survey that showed human are not the only ones who celebrate Halloween . The survey said 59% pet parents celebrate this holiday with their pets.

Pet parents pick out Halloween costumes from Petco that fit their pet’s personality,  but I think they just pick out what they think will be cute or spooky on us.

I could look spooky in this caterpillar costume if I would I charged at you really fast. He he…

But really the caterpillar costume is to look adorable on me, but I think I’m just bringing a friend on my back to go trick or treating so I don’t have to go alone.

Details on the Caterpillar costume.

  • Caterpillar cat costume
  • Features a plush, ultra-soft multi-colored body, six legs and caterpillar character details
  • Uses two adjustable Velcro closures so you can provide the perfect fit for your pet

Make sure you measure your pet for other costumes before heading to the store or bring your pet to get the right fit. 

Petco has even a Chewbacca from Star Wars and other characters from the movies too. What do you think about my Chewbacca costume?  Purrfect fit? Can you believe they have a taco and hotdog costume for dogs?  Well believe it!

If you would like to see what I’m talking about on Petco on their Halloween costumes. Follow the link below, but don’t forget to leave me a message before you go.. Remember no candy for us pets only Pet treats!

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll see you next Thursday, 

Happy Halloween!

Cat Naps Winners – The story of Squibby

‘Squibby’ photographed by Phil Croucher, UK – 2016 iCatCare Cat Naps photography competition winner

“This cat is a stray called Squibby who lives with my parents on their small holding in France. She turned up one morning, about two years ago, a scruffy bundle of grey fluff, hungry and wary, but soon settled in and became a great companion for my Dad – often following him around as he worked. She is a prolific hunter and after a night in the fields she loves to catch the warmth of the morning sun through the barn window, which is also directly above my Dad’s favourite perch, where he would sit and read the mail each morning.”

Phil unfortunately lost his father in May after a long battle with cancer. This picture will appear in October of the Cat Naps calendar – his Dad’s birthday month – as a tribute to this kind and very missed man.


The judges loved the fact that Squibby’s coat matches the colours of the wood and stone in this photograph.
