Dressing up your pup for Halloween is almost a societal expectation these days, and TBH it makes total sense — although the average dog simply can't stand the feeling of those $30 Target costumes (Doug the Pug is an outlier), they never fail to look straight-up adorable.

Is this a panda? Or is it a cat? To be honest it's pretty hard to tell if this is a costume, or if it's really just part of his body. But we'll worry about that later.

6. A Devilish Kitty

Don't get me wrong — we love our furry friends more than anything in the whole world. But sometimes your beloved feline is quite literally the devil, whether they're smashing your belongings, waking you up in the middle of the night, or simply wreaking havoc left and right.

So it's safe to say this is a lovingly ironic costume for any cat owner out there.

We usually try to avoid bees at all costs (for obvious reasons), but giving love to this bee is simply inevitable. Between those giant eyes, adorable antennas, and most importantly, no stingers, it's the bee of our wildest dreams.

Truly sweeter than honey.

It pretty much goes without saying that a cat in a Halloween costume is vastly underrated. There is truly nothing cuter than a cat attempting to be spooky, so if your cat isn't dressing up for Halloween, please change that ASAP — we need more costume-wearing-cats in our lives, y'all.
