Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays, a time of candy, scary movies, decorations, pumpkin carving, and costumes.

We like to think that it's a special occasion where the whole family can get involved. But sadly, that's not true. Yes, the truth of the matter is that Halloween is a time when our pets are sadly neglected and don't really get to take part in all the fun.

This is doubly true if you happen to own something small a furry, like a bunny rabbit, hamster, or a guinea pig. However, if you'd like to get your pet involved this year for real, then we have the answer for you.

PetSmart pet stores are offering sharks, pineapple, mermaid and a host of other Halloween costumes for guinea pigs this year, and from what we can make out from the pictures, they're utterly adorable!
