The Dr. Seuss Cat In The Hat Costume
Bigger than life, and great for both boys and girls.
Perhaps my favorite aspect of this kitty costume is that boys actually feel comfortable wearing it too. The Cat in the Hat is universally loved, and your little boy can have a great time dressing up like this goofy character. He's a male cat after all, and Mike Myers famous played this kitty in the movie (The Cat in the Hat, see a clip below).
See Mike Myers take on the role.

If you've got a pack of kids dressing up like superheros, this is a costume that'll fit right in. Especially since choices for girls are still limited in the superhero front. It's getting better, but still limited.
A Catwoman costume is another great choice for kids that get into the role-playing aspect of Halloween. If your little girl has a dramatic side, this is an excellent choice for her.

The Simple Black Cat Costume
Purrrty and just right for Halloween.
This cat costume idea is also fun because it gives you a chance to do some face painting. You can create whiskers and the black button nose, along with playing around with eyeliner for a dramatic effect. So while the costume itself is simple, you can have a blast with getting creative with your face!
