PHOTOS: Dogs & Cats All Decked Up Like the Pope

Instagram has been blowing up with adorable photos of pets dressed as the Pope for the past few days, so we decided to create a slideshow for you showing you how hilarious these photos are.

We’re used to seeing dogs and cats dressed up as celebrities but never did we think we’d see this!

Yes, it’s almost Halloween, but that’s not why these dogs and cats are dressed like the Pope. Apparently, many pet owners were inspired by the Pope’s visit to New York City so they dressed up their critters like the Holy man himself.

That doesn’t mean that you can’t borrow the inspiration next month when you take your dog (or cat) trick or treating.

Yes, Fido makes a great Pope Francis. Why not!?
