I’m thrilled to announce a giveaway exclusively for readers of the Cats Meow blog!

This month, Petsmart will give away a free Halloween costume or hat to one lucky reader of the Cats Meow blog!

Petsmart has a large array of Halloween costumes for dogs and cats, including headwear costumes that are easier for costume-intolerant cats to wear. And, between Petsmarts Halloween photo contest, and Martha Stewart’s Pet Halloween Costume Contest, and youll have no shortage of occasions to wear your costume!

TO ENTER:
All you need to do is describe which Petsmart costume youd like to win and why, by leaving a comment in the comments field of this post. Make sure youve input your correct email address and blog or Catster Profile URL when you leave your comment so we can contact the winner.

EXAMPLE:

I want to win the ‘Companion Road How Now Brown Cow Costume’ because if I were a cow I could drink all the milk I wanted all day long!

WHO CAN ENTER:

PetSmart Ready to Treat Not Trick the Nearly 20 Million Pets Expected to Don Costumes this Halloween

Pets can have their devilish day in disguise with help from PetSmart this Halloween. According to a recent PetSmart survey, nearly 20 million pets (with help from their parents) will sport a costume this year.

Pets are like our children, and pet parents love to include their pets in the fun of dressing up for Halloween, said Rashell Cooper, PetSmarts fashion expert. Our unique selection of costumes this year are a combination of returning favorites, like the cow and bumble bee, and some great new choices, like the firedog, dragon and lion.

PetSmart will also carry popular Disney character costumers, like Mickey Mouse, Tigger and Tinker Bell. All pet costumes are all available for less than $20 U.S. ($22 CAN).

Cats will not be ignored this Halloween. PetSmart also has Halloween hats just for cats including a devil, witch, jester, cowboy and mouse. All cat hats are available for $6.99 U.S. ($7.99 CAN).

Adding to the Halloween fun, PetSmart gives pet parents two chances to show off their pets personality. Pet parents can enter in PetSmart’s Online Howl-O-Ween Costume Photo Contest. The contest runs through Oct. 27 and the winners will be announced Nov. 3 on www.petsmart.com.

Howl-O-Ween In-store Event

On Oct. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m., pets and their parents can show off their stylish costumes and devilish ways at PetSmart’s annual Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest and Photo Event. The event will be held in all PetSmart stores and will feature a pet parade, prizes for contest winners and a free goodie bag for the first 100 customers. A photo package is available for $4.95 with a PetPerks card and includes a digital photo and collector Halloween-themed frame.
