PetSmart Is Selling Guinea Pig Costumes for Halloween
Regardless of whether or not animals enjoy it, some people can't resist dressing up their pets in wigs and sequins when October rolls around. This has become so common that it's easy to find Halloween costumes for dogs and even cats in stores and online. This year, PetSmart is making sure some of the smallest animals they cater to don't feel left out: The pet supply chain is selling a line of costumes for guinea pigs just in time for Halloween, Yahoo! reports.
PetSmart has featured outfits for guinea pigs in its Halloween collection for the past few years. The 2019 line includes a few trendy options, like a mermaid, unicorn, and superhero. There are also classic costumes, such as a witch and a pumpkin, made to fit your pet's small, stubby body. And if cuteness is your main goal, it's tough to beat the miniature pineapple costume.
It's never too early to start planning your Halloween costume, especially if you intend to match with your pet. PetSmart's seasonal guinea pig line is already available to purchase online, so you can get your pet costume shopping out of the way early this year. Prices range from $4 to $7.
PetSmart may have expanded its costume options to include guinea pigs, but there are still plenty of nontraditional pets that get ignored by retailers around Halloween. This has forced some pet owners to get creative—you can see the amazing results here.
