The ugly sweater craze is warming up women and men this holiday season — and now the silly, ubiquitous and often uniquely artistic outerwear has gone to the dogs… and cats.

Not wanting to leave out the furry loves of their lives, many people are dressing up their pets in what was once a fashion no-no but has since taken the holiday season by storm, the Miami Herald reports.

“My non-cat lady friends definitely think I am crazy,” Catie Savage, who handles her cats’ popular Instagram site (@life-of-ziggy), said in the article. She added that she enjoys the Christmas sweaters more than the cats do, “which makes it even funnier to me.”

So in the spirit of this new holiday tradition, here are several sweater-wearing pets who now have the honor of looking every bit as ridiculous (although, definitely more adorable) as we do this Christmas. On festive patterns, on ribbon and bows! Embrace those ugly sweaters and shine from your head to your toes!

1. Eva is feeling a little “pepperminty” this holiday season.

2. “Please, my reindeer trumps your red and white any day!”

3. “Where’s the treats? You said there’d be treats.”
