Watch: Dressing up your pet for Carnival, a cat-astrophe or very a-moo-sing?

Carnival is upon us once again and children – and adults – of all ages will be out in droves in their costumes, having a jolly good time with their friends.

Some pets will also get in on the action, with their owners ‘subjecting’ them to be dressed up in cutesy costumes – dogs dressed as dinosaurs and cats as witches and so on.

What do you think of this trend? Is it just a bit of fun or do you think animals should be left in peace during this holiday?
