The only clothes Zoe wears are her sweaters when we walk in cold weather.

This is for human amusement and the humans are fooling themselves if they think their pets or any animals are enjoying costumes. Just because they tolerate it, doesn't mean they like it.

Each to their own but I can think of better uses for the time and money

You see cute, I see unhappy. Most of those pets do not look happy.

omg! #1 Tuxedo Cat & #2 Dinosaur are way adorable, however, it has to be said that none of the 'costumed' pets look particularly happy. my cat would definitely not speak to me for days if I dressed him up no matter how cute he looked!

Some dogs love costumes and coats and the like.. Some hate it. We've had both. Some pranced and preened. Same with cats, though less like it. If yours is one of those that hate it, don't do it.
