To keep it short and simple, MARKETING is why having a halloween costume can help your foster cat get adopted! Around Autumn, many fosters have kittens and cats that they are trying to get into warm, cozy homes before winter. One way to make your foster cats stand out to adopters is to having fun, eye catching images that display their personalities.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that putting a cat in a Halloween costume of your choosing is showing more of your personality than theirs. And you want to be CERTAIN that your cat is comfortable in the costume. Only dress the cat up for a photo session or a short event during which it might get your kitty more attention from potential adopters. This way, you can have fun while respecting your foster’s needs and dignity.
