My husband and I have a little bit of a zoo in our rental house: We have a cat, a little dog and a big dog. As Halloween quickly approaches, I was thinking about how to get my furbabies involved in the fun, so naturally, I went to Pinterest to find DIY pet costumes for Halloween.

If you can get your cat to wear a Halloween costume, I am impressed. My cat definitely won’t wear anything … but she does love to get inside boxes, so whoever came up with that idea is a total genius. Here are some of my favorite DIY cat costumes:
