Animals in Costumes: Cute or Cruel?
It’s that time of year again, when young and old alike shed their everyday clothes and transform into someone or something new. But it’s not just humans getting in on the fun of Halloween, animals also don costumes – sometimes whether they like it or not.
Some pets certainly do like their costumes and the attention they get from them. If puppies are trained to wear clothing, they can easily adapt to it.
Pets in costumes cause many people to squeal in delight at the sight of a pug pirate or a lab police officer. Animals in costumes are adorable, and if the animal is okay with it, what’s the big deal?
But, undoubtedly, many animals can’t stand costumes. They’re itchy, uncomfortable and can even be a safety hazard.
