There’s no way around it: Fourth of July will look a bit different for most people this year. But if you’re stuck at home with your pet, why not dress him up? 

Pets tend to look even better than people in red, white and blue. So we rounded up some of the most unique items to help your cat or dog feel like the life of the party — even if that party’s postponed ’til 2021. 

(Remember, the most important thing is making sure your dog or cat is safe and comfortable on the Fourth of July, especially around fireworks — check out our tips for cats or dogs.)
