There's going to be no shortage of scaredy cats this year during the annual trick-or-treating that will be taking place over Halloween, or scardey dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, horses and even crabs (yes, crabs!) come to think of it, as more and more pet owners are dressing their animals up in some amazing Halloween costumes.
We all love our pets and i'm sure the unconditional love they give us back will stretch to them willing to put up with different levels of dressing-up nonsense from their owners, and as you can see from the amazing examples below it's more than worth the effort you put in.
So why not join in and give the family pet a loving pat on the head and look at them very closely and while they are happy for the attention you are giving them they will be totally unaware that your close scrutiny is all part of a fiendish plan to decide just what pet costume would look perfect on them.
Lastly, just think of the extra treats the kids will amass with a cute scary Halloween creature by their side as they knock on people's doors, it has to be one of the best marketing tricks out there for this time of year.
Have a great Halloween this year and remember, it simply wouldn't be complete without some cute (and terrifying) costumed pets.
