Adorable Animal Halloween Costumes

Jill Harness

Opinions on animal costumes are widely varied, ranging from "oh those adorable little babies" to "how could you torture an innocent animal like that?" If you're in the first group, you'll be sure to appreciate these 13 precious animal Halloween costumes that include a Native American kitty, a Lady Gaga dog and the caveman pup above.

As someone who likes to dress my dog up in costumes, I can say that some animals like it (mine will be a turtle this year), but I agree with detractors—it is torture to some pets. Does your pet like to get dressed up? And if so, what will they be for Halloween?
