Cat page on Reddit hosts a Halloween cat contest

People love dressing up their cats for Halloween, and if the cats let them put the costume on, the results are adorable. The r/cats page on Reddit recently held a Halloween cat contest, and all the cats are absolutely spooktacular!

The Halloween cat contest

An admin on the page posted the announcement last week, requesting everyone’s best Halloween cat submissions.

They were accepting pictures of cats in their awesome Halloween costumes, including Photoshopped costumes. They also accepted cat pictures that were generally Halloween-themed.

As soon as the contest was announced, cat owners started sharing the best pictures of their cats. The Reddit page declared its own winners, but we wanted to share some of our favorite costumes as well.

Fabulous costumes

These two cats had some pretty unique costumes. We don’t think we’ve ever seen a Marie Antoinette cat and a Sherlock Holmes cat together before.

This cat’s name is Dora? More like a-Dora-ble! We love this cute butterfly costume.

Some cat owners got extra creative, like this one who made a parrot costume for her cat, Tia.

Funny costumes

Here’s an everyday outfit that makes a funny costume for a cat: a Target delivery man. He’ll probably want to sit in all the empty cardboard boxes.

This cat pulls off this sushi costume so well. There’s something so cute and funny about cats dressed up as food.

Monster costumes

This cat went with a classic monster look and became Franken-Cheese! Extra points for the tongue out.

This cat is looking very regal in his vampire costume. Let’s just hope Count Catula isn’t out for blood!

Grumpy kitties

We love a grumpy-looking kitty, especially one dressed up like the beloved childhood TV character Oscar the Grouch, from Sesame Street. He pulls off this look flawlessly.

Say hello to this grumpy pumpkin! Cheddar doesn’t look like he appreciates the costume. We hope he didn’t have to wear it for too long.
