Nine outstandingly irked cats in costume for Dress Up Your Pet Day

Guys, it’s been a very special day.

A day of delight for internet animal enthusiasts and overbearing pet owners, and the bane of existence for actual pets. It’s Dress Up Your Pet Day — an actual, genuine thing.

Apparently started by U.S. animal advocate Colleen Paige, Dress Up Your Pet Day was designed to promote pet adoption and generally showcase pets for the delightful, dress-upable creatures they are.

Falling this year on Jan. 14, the day saw hundreds of social media posts featuring four-legged critters in tiny costumes.

We laughed, we cried, we picked out our favourites, including these very annoyed cats and one very disgruntled chug (pug-chihuahua).

These cats do not want to save the day.

These little jaws will end your summer.

Jaws who?

Ollie does not want to participate in any fiesta, anywhere, anytime.

Midnight will likely use an Unforgivable Curse for this.

This little kitty just can’t wait to be king so it can seriously banish its owner.
