Do cats and dogs need to wear special clothes during wintertime?
There are different and contradictory opinions on this subject. While a part of the cat or dog owners believe that dressing up their pets is something weird and they are totally against special animal clothing, others think it is a good thing that protects their animals in wintertime and also makes them look really cute.
We all have to admit that dressed up pets sometimes look very cute and funny. There is no harm in putting clothing on our pets, if we are concerned about them catching a cold during the cold season. It is true that they have their own natural “fur clothes”, but sometimes they are not enough.
Some dogs or cats have lighter layers of fur than others, and some are not genetically suited to the environments in which you live. Some of them were meant to live in warmer regions and they are more sensitive to cold weather than the others. So, if your pet seems to not really feel comfortable outside the house in wintertime, if your beloved furry friend is violently shivering when you take it playing in the snow, then you can consider dressing it up in warm special clothes.
There are some rules you have to take into consideration when dressing up your pet, if you want it to feel comfortable and happy. The first one is that your animal cannot wear pants. Jackets and sweaters are enough. And you can also opt for cute little hats, scarves and other accessories specially designed for animals. You’ll find all these outfits in special pet stores, but you can also create yourself personalized clothing items for your cute animal.
If your only concern is that your pet is going to look weird if you dress it up, we believe that you should not worry about that. You can buy or create for your cute friend warm clothes and accessories that will make it look extremely cute and funny. Here are some adorable pictures to get inspired from:
