You gotta love crazy cat people, if only for the entertainment value. You’re looking at a handmade $500 Cat Battle Armor, being sold on Etsy by a seller who goes by the name of “schnabuble”. We’re going to go out on a limb and assume this person really loves cats and gave the kitty in the picture some kitty drugs or kitty hypnosis or something, because the cats we’ve come across would’ve “battled” to keep the armour off. Anyway, here’s a description in the seller’s own words:
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.
