ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the *Kittens* of war… ?
It’s not nearly so swank, but my cat looks quite distinguished in her feline-sized pickelhaube – the old Prussian spiked helmet –
Lozenge-camo sneakers? Oh, my. And your cat looks plenty swank – perhaps a feline C-93 or C96?
INVISIBL CAT IS HUNG LIEK HORSE
CHEK OUT DONG ARMER
When the lady of the house called me to the computer with the words “I just found armor for my cat!”, horrific images of chastity belts ran through my head.
Oh, my lozenge camouflage sneakers are fabulous, Dr. Hypercube:
I’m not sure I’d trust Nutmeg around firearms – though a Mouser would be an appropriate variant on the Mauser.
Also awesome and not immediately obvious from link – Ro-Cat: The 1934 Twin Rocket Flying Suit. I think not naming this Ro-Cat-Teer was a lost opportunity.
That may be armor for a cat, but it’s not cat armor.
There’s an anime series titled El-Hazard. In it, there is a cat which literally wraps itself around the main character to form a protective covering. That’s what I call cat armor.
Sorry I can’t find an image or video right now.
Has anybody tried dressing a live cat in such armour? I can see that going wrong in a number of ways.
I totally agree. My cat almost tortures itself to death trying to remove a collar with a bell. I can’t imagine what would happen if I dressed it in this (yet a dark & deeply repressed part of me wants to try).
I can haz matchen hooman armer fer when we tri too put thiz on ar kittehz?
Even better than the Squirrel Armor from Pitbull Armory http://www.pitbullarmory.com/Squirrel-armor.html (who also made several for dogs as the name implies)
I can hardly express how awesome that is.
I’m still waiting for Thracian mouse greaves for the
Screwed up the 2nd link – Batrachomyomachia.
I believe that may have been worn by Miowara Tomokato – Samurai Cat
I can has sum holez drilld for heering?
Just imagine the sounds from the alley at night if this becomes a trend!
I’m kind of disappointing that it’s not an actual relic.
just caught my cat downloading images from that website, and am now hearing metalworking sounds emanating from the cat’s ‘fortress of solitude’.
should I be worried?
