With the upcoming release of the new Bond film, Skyfall, there is no better time to dress your favourite feline companion as the iconic 007. Needing only a classic bow-tie, this costume is easy, sophisticated, ~trendy~ and affordable all at the same time. Your cat will love its Bond persona so much that pretty soon it will be asking to have its meow mix shaken, not stirred.

A vampire is a classic Halloween costume that never goes out of style. Luckily for you and your cat, it is a simple yet ~SpOoKy~ outfit to pull off. All you need is a black cape (supplied by you) and a stunned stare (supplied by your cat) to complete this ensemble. A hiss here and there won’t hurt either.

Dressing your cat as a hipster will not only be ironic, but incredibly easy as you most likely will need to look no further than your closet for the costume components. With a pair of plastic rimmed glasses and a beanie, your cat will look effortlessly cool while handing out candy. Make your cat listen to some Joy Division before trick-or-treating if you really want your meowster to get into character.
Princess/Honey Boo Boo
Channel your feline’s inner cattitude by dressing your pet in apparel fit for a beauty queen. A princess costume doubles as a Honey Boo Boo outfit, so if your cat has more than one Halloween party to attend, there is no need to buy another look. By reusing this costume you will be saving a dolla’, which in true Mama Bear fashion, will make you holla’.
The Village People
If you are a person who has more than one cat (no judgment), it can be even harder to develop original and creative kitty costumes. Dressing your cat clan as The Village People will not only allow for each pet to feel a sense of individuality, but will also make for hilarious photo ops. All you need is six cats, a sewing machine and a neighbour who won’t call the SPCA.
And… if all else fails, meme it up with Nyan Cat.
