Take a picture of your black cat in an interesting spooky scene. Get creative! Maybe it would even make a great greeting card! There are lots of ways you can decorate with pictures.

Put your black cat in costume! Maybe he'd make a great vampire, wizard, or something else dark. Halloween costumes for cats come in lots of variety nowadays. Or just a simple orange ribbon tied around his neck for a cute photo. (Under supervision, of course.)

Keep your Halloween black cats indoors, especially on this night of nights. Why? Folks are out and about, and a dark cat is more likely to be hit by a car or worse. This is a time of superstitions, and she'll be subject to unwanted attention.

Turns out, cats don't love wearing pet cat costumes. Go figure! So it's best to keep it short, take a picture or two, then let her out of her cat costume. You cat always try it on again later.

Also, take note of the Halloween costume's material and general construction. Depending on the costume style, it could have things to beware of:

  • Strings and ties, though good for chasing, pose a choking hazard
  • Velcro can attach to fur, causing panic
  • Small pieces and crinkly plastic may get chewed on
