Top 7 Spooky Cat Puns

Top 7 Cat Candy Puns

Since Halloween and candy go hand in hand, here are a few candy-related cat puns. Perhaps you can come up with more!

  • Cat-bury (Cadbury)
  • Kit Cat (Kit Kat)
  • Skitties (Skittles)
  • Hershey’s Hisses (Kisses)
  • Lickorice (Licorice)

How to Come Up With Your Own Cat Puns

The first thing that you need to do is list words associated with cats:

  • Cat
  • Kitty
  • Kitten
  • Feline
  • Purr
  • Meow
  • Mew
  • Tabby
  • Claws
  • Paws
  • Hiss
  • Tail
  • Fur

There are more, of course, but this is a good start. Then, find words that sound similar, like “How are you feline (feeling)?” and “Are you fur (for) real?” This technique can also be used for names like Kitty Purry (Katy Perry), or you can just randomly throw it in a sentence. All it takes is imagination and a terribly cheesy sense of humor!

Where Can You Use Cat Puns?

You can try peppering these puns into your everyday conversation, but you might lose your friends!

Considering wearing a cat costume for Halloween, and trying out these puns while out with your friends and family! The terrible humor might actually work in these circumstances.

You can also consider making homemade cards. If you also make a homemade Halloween costume for your cat, imagine how cute your cards would look with their picture and a terrible Halloween pun!

There are other holidays for which you can come up with puns, like Christmas or International Cat Day.

Finally, there’s always social media. If you use Instagram or any of the others, the occasional pun accompanied by a picture of your adorable cat might win you a few followers — or lose them.



The first thing that we need to do is apologize for our claw-ful puns. Hopefully, you got a chuckle from a few, but we’ll understand if you just rolled your eyes.

Still, we hope that you had fun! Enjoy this spooky season, pour yourself a meow-tini, and consider yourself fur-tunate that this article is done!
