Apparently, Cats Need Suits of Armor

People like to laugh and act like I am being silly when I say the animals are plotting against us.  Well, once again, I am here with proof.  The animals now have armor.  I haven’t found any proof of WMDs, so we don’t need to invade any countries or anything, but clearly something is brewing.

There has been horse armor forever.  I think this is where the cats got the idea (I think the cats are masterminding the whole thing).  Horses wore their armor so they would be protected when we forced them to help us fight against other people.  Nobody is riding a cat or a mouse into battle now, are they?  Exactly.

Artist Jeff de Boer has created armor for the cats and mice.  He has also created a ton of other super cool artwork (totally go check it out).  You all see it, right?  Jeff is using his other work as a cover for his subversive animal activities.  I can only assume the animals are blackmailing him.

Anyway, click through to see the animal armor and appreciate the amazing craftsmanship (try to ignore the underlying threat).

    Laugh at me now, but when all the pets in your neighborhood come walking down the street wearing armor, it won't be so funny.

    I can't imagine the horses loved wearing this. But, I guess they liked it better than getting stabbed and cut.

    This suit seems more for show than for actual battle. Plus, I think that tail part is going to start to chaff after a bit.

    Since the Persian Cat just gets a helmet, I assume he's like the guy in charge, keeping away from the real fighting. More of a supervisor.

    I'm sure there is nothing to worry about that these mice are running dress rehearsals.

    It's no Samurat, but still very regal.

    This appears to be the armour for the regular troops, the grunts, if you will.

    Hands-free weapons, all the best suits of armor have them.

    I guess if there was bat armor then they could have a Dark Knight.
