Description

Love this? Check out our other cool stuff at www.savagepunk.com!

**This should go without saying, but this is not meant to protect your cat. It will not protect your cat against predators, so please do not purchase it for that purpose.**

Custom made to fit your cat's measurements! This is a custom piece made to order. If you'd like any changes, please contact us, and we can work with you and set up a separate listing.

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.

Available as shown, or with optional d-ring attachment at the torso for use with a leash (leash not included) as a harness.

We will reach out to get your cat's measurements. Otherwise, you'll receive armor meant to fit an average 10 pound house cat. Please inquire about additional colors or design specifics.

***UPDATED*** Wow. Apparently the internet likes cats! Thanks, everyone, for your interest and awesome commentary on the Cat Battle Armor. To answer some common questions I've received about this creation, I'm making this list of FAQ's that I hope is informative.

"Did you make this?"

-Yes. The armor is entirely handmade with leather, waxed cord, and nickel silver hardware, with a little elastic.

"What kind of cat is that?"

-Selani is a female Savannah Cat, a breed combining a domestic cat with an African wildcat called a Serval: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savannah_(cat) Yes, she does look a bit like a Bengal. She is our beloved rescue kitty, adopted from a family she couldn't stay with due to her dominance issues with other cats. She has a ton of personality and we care for her very much. She has her own Facebook page, for those of you interested in following her exploits and seeing her latest costumes: www.facebook.com/selanithecat

"How did you get your cat to wear that? My cat would KILL me."

-It's all about how you approach it. Selani isn't really inherently more receptive to wearing armor than any other cat. We just took it slowly and carefully with her. While we were constructing the armor, we made sure Selani was around to get used to the look, feel, and smell of it, and gave her positive reinforcement through extra petting and treats when she approached. When we put it on her, we did it gently and over a long period of time, cuddling her in our laps and letting her move away whenever she wanted. Using force or physically restraining her would have been very counterproductive- we just had to be patient, and reward her when she helped out. We put it on her for frequent short periods of time, always lavishly rewarding her when doing so. Now she seems to genuinely enjoy wearing it- purring and actively modeling. I think she also appreciates the extra insulation the leather offers, because she is a total heat-whore and likes being very warm. It was designed first and foremost to be comfortable for her. The leather is flexible and lightweight. She can walk, scurry, jump up on things, and has fallen asleep while wearing it.


"Do you make armor for (dogs, ferrets, hamsters, squid, hedgehogs, ligers, etc)?"

-Most emphatically yes, all of those things. Give us a reason. Seriously. Custom order inquiries are welcome!

Returns and exchange details
Refunds for some off-the-shelf items such as bracelets and hair barrettes will be honored if the request is received within 7 days of receipt. Shipping will not be refunded.

Orders are non-refundable for a few reasons:

1.) Once an order is slated in our production schedule, we reserve your spot and do not take other orders. Due to the nature of our business, we do not keep a lot of stock on hand and are often making things to order despite it not being "custom."
2.) Once your payment is received, it is immediately reinvested into the business.


We will, however, be happy to work with you depending on the circumstances. There is rarely an issue as you can probably tell from our 5 star reviews. :)
