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.

Please inquire about additional colors or design specifics. Our model Selani, shown in these pictures, weighs 9 lbs... armor will adjust to fit most adult cats.

***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!
