Did you know . . .

. . .that you can buy Battle Armour For Your Cat ?????

Image

To quote the designer:
Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor’

Image

The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines.

Image

Warning
Do not mess with this fully armed and operational Battle Cat!!!
