Now … getting them in it
Cute as these Easter costumes for cats are, dressing up isn’t something most felines are particularly fond of. If your cat absolutely despises having anything put on their heads or bodies, it’s best to just leave them alone and leave dress-ups for the internet cats. However, if they’ve a forgiving nature and you think they may not mind, here are a few tips on how to do it:
The right fit
Always make sure your cat isn’t being constricted or their breathing impaired by the chosen outfit. They must be able to breathe normally, see, communicate, eat, move, jump, and go to the bathroom safely. Never leave them in their costume for too long or unattended, so they don’t get stuck in it or hurt themselves.
Let them get used to it
If you’re planning a photoshoot or a particular dress-up day, get them used to the costume well before the time. Leave it in their favourite spots so they get to see it often and get used to the smell and look of it.
Dress them up a few times beforehand in the chosen costume using plenty of positive reinforcement, treats and a calm, soothing voice so it’s a happy experience.
When they’re in their outfit, try to distract them from it by playing with them or offering them treats. This will buy you time to snap those cute pictures wearing Easter costumes for cats before they wriggle out of it.
Insure your furball
We know you love that precious ball of fur of yours, which is why comprehensive cat insurance is so important. That way, you never have to worry about paying their vet bills if they do happen to swallow a chocolate Easter egg or get into a similarly hairy situation with injury or illness.
