Last year we shared suits of metal armor designed for cats and mice and scale-mail created for guinea pigs. Today there’s a new addition to the awesome world of pet body armor. This handsome leather suit of Cat Battle Armor, modeled here by a beautiful kitty named Selani, is the work of schnabuble, skilled craftsperson and Etsy vendor. It’s an impressive way to include your cat when watching Game of Thrones, LARPing, or visiting Renaissance Fairs.

100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. 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. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit.

The complete suit of Cat Battle Armor weighs 9 lbs, adjusts to fit most adult cats, and costs $500. It’s currently available here.
