Help! I plan on attempting my first Halloween costume for my cat, Homer.  Anyone have any suggestions for a costume? I actually wanted to dye him yellow  and make blue pants and a white shirt(After all he is named HOMER!), but have No idea how he'd feel about that! !(he's mostly all white with gray patches on his face and back.  The ones on his back are cool, they're shaped like a perfect #7!) I decided against it and need suggestions for something simpler.Any ideas?

Put a big furry collar on your cat, and dress up as a lion tamer with a hula hoop Cheesy I think that'd be adorable!

First of all, I don't suggest dying your cat. Second, there are some pictures in the pet-related craft section that might help you. Only one or two costumes there are for cats, but most of the dog ones could probably be made to fit your cat.
Good luck!

if you do decide to dye your cat, be sure to use vegetable-based food dyes so as not to damage your kitty.  i did a really lovely butterfly on my cat's white chest at easter time and he looked lovely.  and if you do go this route, it may be more recognizeable to paint a small homer on his back.  a half yellow and half blue cat would look neat, but i doubt the first thing to pop into people's heads would be, "oh, that's a homer simpson cat."

nope, nope.  the metallic dyes that are fine for our big frames are not so good for the kitty crowd.

On the pet board under "Show us your kitties!" someone dyed her cat pink with Kool Aid. She drew a bath, threw a packet in, and let her kitty splash around--not something that most cats would enjoy, but it's pretty safe from what I hear. Just make sure that you don't sweeten the Kool Aid--just Kool Aid mix and water.

I have two cats with very different personalities, so I'm making devil horns and a halo.

This morning I was thinking that I could dress my cat as a lamb and I could be mary from Mary had a little lamb. I don't plan to do this, but you could get some white fake fur or wooly material or you could knit or crochet or whatever and make a little bonnety thing with ears on it. And a little cape, but maybe not because you have a white cat. And you could wear an oldfashioned dress and a little apron and cap thingy and have a shepherds crook...
