Pumpkins will walk on four legs this Halloween, according to a new survey. The National Retail Federation thinks the big orange costume will be the top pick for pet owners dressing up their cats and dogs this year.

The forecast is based on the 2008 Halloween Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, conducted by BIGresearch. Coming in at No. 10 is perhaps the easiest costume for those with ebony felines: black cat.

No matter what costume you or your clients choose for their pets, make sure it’s breathable and comfortable. (Click here to download and print a PDF of a Halloween pet safety handout for clients.) Here’s the entire top 10 list:

1. Pumpkin
2. Devil
3. Witch
4. Princess
5. Hot dog
6. Superman
7. Bee
8. Bowties, fancy collars, etc.
9. Ghost
10. Black cat
