It's that time of year again! Spooky season is upon us and that means participating in all the activities that make fall fun. Fortunately, that doesn't have to mean leaving your cat behind in the process! There are plenty of cat-friendly fall activities that you and your favorite feline can do together.
Fall foliage hikes, pumpkin picking, apple picking, and corn mazes are just a number of the iconic fall activities that your cat can tag along to. With safety in mind, fit them with a kitty harness and leash or into a cat backpack so they can join you in a more controlled manner. Getting some fresh air and taking in all the sights and smells of autumn is a relaxing way for you both to celebrate the season.
Your cat is the purrfect partner for a couple's costume. Not only because they are adorable as all get out, but because they'll agree with just about any outlandish costume idea you come up with. There are a number of iconic couple's costumes that you and your cat can dress up as, including, but not limited to, you as a "Cat Burglar" and your cat as a bag of money, you as a cat and your cat as a mouse, or you as a mummy and your cat as the Egyptian goddess, Bastet.
If your cat isn't too keen on dressing up, not to worry! There are a number of costumes that you can wear, and your cat will be a key part of, without requiring them to dress up at all. Some great costumes that require a cat to really tie them together include, you as a Sanderson Sister and your cat as Thackery Binx (best for black cats), you as Dr. Evil and your cat as Mr. Bigglesworth (best for Sphynx cats), or you as Alice in Wonderland and your cat as the Cheshire Cat (best for striped cats). You two will be the envy of the costume contest with any of these eerie ensembles!
Scary movie nights are one of the best ways to spend a spooky fall evening at home. Snuggle up with your cat to watch any of these great Halloween movies where cats take center-stage.
What's a spooky movie night without good food? While baking yourself some pumpkin muffins or spookily-shaped cookies, drum up some fall-themed goodies for your cat as well! There are a number of tantalizing treats that you can bake for your cat, which incorporate some classic fall flavors. Try making some spooky pumpkin salmon biscuits, eerie egg muffins, or ghoulish eyeball cake pops. You can find the recipes, here! If pumpkin is more tantalizing to your cat's taste buds, then you can find the recipes for these pumpkin under the sea balls, pumpkin pie treats, and tuna pumpkin biscotti's, here! You will be your cat's biggest fan if you make them any of these spooky and equally tasty treats to snack on.
We know you admire your cat, but now is your chance to really make them your muse! Your cat is the purrfect subject for a pumpkin carving masterpiece this Halloween. Simply print out a photo of your cat that is an appropriate size for the pumpkin of your choosing, and get to carving! Not to worry if your slicing skills are sub-par, your cat won't judge! Well... they might judge. But only a little bit.
No matter how you choose to celebrate spooky season, just don't forget to include your feline friends in on the fun! You'll be glad you did.
