British Shorthairs

Though there were fewer dogs in costume than at the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade across town, the American Kennel Club's annual Meet the Breeds event was no less adorable. More than 200 types of cats and dogs were showcased during the event, which raises awareness for the AKC. And—because you can't have an event like this without shoehorning a small, furry animal into a ridiculous outfit—there was a cat fashion show. Photographer Nadia Chaudhury was on the scene to capture these ridiculously adorable pets; click through for more shots.
