Cats are to Halloween what elves are to Christmas—it wouldn’t be the same holiday without ’em. So, even while your four-legged feline may never step foot outside your house, there’s no reason Catniss can’t be included in some spooky October 31 activities. Here are 40 cat Halloween costumes that are definitely more hilarious than they are scary, but Catniss never has to know that, does she?

75 Creative Halloween Costumes That Will Help You Win Fright Night

1. Lion

Pay homage to your little lion cub’s heritage—and blast The Lion King album while you’re getting ready, ya know, just to get into character.

2. Wild West Sheriff

“This house isn’t big enough for the both of us,” is something your cat has probably thought to himself. Little did Rex know you’d be putting him in this…

3. Spider Kitty

Fluffy already has nine lives, shouldn’t she have at least nine legs?

4. Unicorn

After all, Buttons is a one-of-a-kind feline. Shouldn’t his costume reflect his uniqueness?

5. Bat Cat

Na-na na-na na-na na-na—Bat Cat!!!! Wanna take this costume to the next level? Dress your toddler (or dog) up as Robin.

6. Monster

OK, this monster is a little less The Thing and a little more Monsters Inc., but either way let’s hope Bart’s attitude doesn’t change to match his outfit.

7. Devil

Marshmallow looks sweet as pie on your Instagram account, but we all know this costume is more than appropriate.

8. Sailor

Tortellini is most definitely a house cat, but Halloween’s the purr-fect occasion to test out his sea legs.

9. Pizza Slice

Remember that time Buttercup licked the cheese off your pie? Think of this as payback.

10. French Artist

Mon chat = mon amour.

11. Cowboy

“Old Town Road” on repeat is mandatory.

12. Doctor

Fuego has been looking for a way to pay homage to the brave healthcare workers on the frontlines, and this might just be it.

13. Robot

If you ask us, this looks a more like an astronaut than a robot, but it really doesn’t matter as everyone will be too busy snapping photos of Roy Donk for Instagram.

14. Snail

Because sleepy Toulouse moves about as fast as a snail anyway.

15. Jester

Got a kitty who’s resistant to wearing a full ensemble? Swap his regular collar for this court-jester version for a minimalist costume that’s still plenty festive.

16. Glow-in-the-dark Skeleton

Turn off the lights and watch brothers Milo and Otis wrestle in their glow-in-the-dark costumes.

17. Double Rainbow

Grab a camera and pretend you’re the “double rainbow” guy.

18. Octopus

Eight legs, nine lives and perfect tens across the board.

19. Stegosaurus

To match your nephew’s T-rex costume.

20. Toast Head

Some things are inexplicably funny. And a cat with her head in a piece of toast is one of those things.

21. Royalty

You always thought your little baby deserved a crown.

22. Chicken

Be sure to treat her to some gushies to go with her chicken costume.

23. Lobster

Be warned: Once Whiskers tries lobster, she may never go back to tuna.

24. Taco

Taco ’bout a statement outfit.

25. Wizard

After all, she cast a spell on your heart the moment you saw her.

26. Santa Paws

Look, if you’re going to spend the money on a costume for your feline, you might as well pick one they can wear multiple times a year.

28. Bellhop

Yes, it’s pictured here on a dog but don’t let that stop you from dressing Purrcy up as a top-notch Grand Budapest Hotel employee.

29. Pumpkin

Because we had to have one pumpkin in here.

30. Were-cat

Mittens does tend to act up on full moons…

31. Hocus Pocus Cat

Because your little Thackery Binx is going to need an outfit when you two watch Hocus Pocus 2 on All Hallow’s Eve.

32. Cow

Trade in those meows for some moos for a night, huh?

33. Bumble Bee

For your buzzy little fellow.

34. Chef

Ratatouille! (Too ironic?)

35. Prisoner

Guilty of being the sweetest kitty and best cuddle buddy ever, of course.

36. ‘80s Retro Kid

Cue up the Run DMC, Bon Jovi and Guns n’ Roses.

37. Pirate

Ahoy, matey! Little Garfield may be super grouchy while donning this number, but he will look super cute. Even if it’s only for five minutes while you snap pics for the ‘Gram.

38. Little Granny

As cute as it is devastatingly hilarious, this look will surely amuse trick-or-treaters.

39. Star Wars X-Wing Fighter

Just in case you and your boo (or friend) are planning a Star Wars-themed ensemble, don’t forget your four-legged friend too.

40. Killer Doll

For those who go all out for Halloween, get your cat involved in the spookiness too.
