THURSDAY IS NATIONAL DRESS UP YOUR PET DAY: HERE ARE COSTUME IDEAS
It’s a good thing you didn’t quite get your dog and cat’s Halloween costumes put away just yet, because Jan. 14 is a day to put them on your precious pets once again.
For National Dress Up Your Pets Day, we went to PetMD.com to find reasons to dress up the little loves.
SHOW THEIR PERSONALITY
How cute is it when a big “mean” pitbull is dressed up like a little baby? Your pet already wants to do everything you are doing, so why not wear clothes? You eat, they want to eat. You sleep, they want to sleep. You bathe, well no dog I know likes baths but you get the point.
DRESS THEM FOR WINTER
This holiday falls in a month that’s cold in many states, even the usually warm ones. It’s one more reason to snuggle your fur baby up with cute coats and hats. Pets love to be cuddled and felt loved. Dressing them up will only draw more attention to them, which in their eyes means more belly rubs.
SHOW OFF THEIR SPORTS TEAM LOYALTY
Dress your little kitty or huge dog in your fave team’s colors, or get NFL jerseys and cheerleading outfits for your pet.
Ever heard of matching outfits for moms and kids? How about matching outfits for moms and fur kids? I can’t think of a better way to bond with your animal than over a cute matching cardigan.
SHOW THEM OFF
We’ve all seen the hashtags — make sure to search for some using your pet’s breed, and share away. Look for pet photo contests to enter. And don’t forget to send one to your eldest relatives who may not be on social media. Have a postcard made at walgreens.com.
Pinterest offers hundreds of pictures of animals dressed up to give you some inspiration.
Want to make your pet’s outfit? Here are some easy costumes for your fur beauty for the upcoming holiday.
If all else fails, the costume will make an excellent chew toy.
