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, theyre embarrassed by them.
In speaking to animals over the years, shes found that many pets get stressed out when forced into costumes.
She explains, They want to maintain their dignity. The animals Ive talked to say theyre 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 theyre wearing a costume and promises to take it off after a few pictures.
