Pet Costumes Are Undignified

MALIN, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dressing up dogs and cats in kitschy costumes on Halloween (Oct. 31) is just so undignified.

It may seem cute to stuff pets into a funny costume, but animal communicator Heidi Wright says furry friends not only find costumes itchy and uncomfortable, they’re embarrassed by them.

In speaking to animals over the years, she’s found that many pets get stressed out when forced into costumes.

She explains, “They want to maintain their dignity. The animals I’ve talked to say they’re really embarrassed. Cats hold it in, but they get so disgusted by having to wear costumes.”

Wright says putting pets in hats, stuffy get-ups, or in outfits meant for the opposite sex upsets them most.

They want to scratch their owners or hide as a result.

However, pets are willing to play nice if their master explains to them why they’re wearing a costume and promises to take it off after a few pictures.
