Prepare Your Cat For Battle With This Epic Suit Of Armor

The Etsy description for this “cat battle armor” is just too good not to post in its entirety:

“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.”

Convinced your fierce feline is ready for some armor of her own? It will cost you $500, but when it comes to outfitting your pet for the zombie apocalypse, spare no expense! [Etsy]

MIND. BLOWN.

Unless you live under a rock, you have probably heard that the Midwest and Northeast were blanketed under a snowstorm last night. Everyone is pissy because they had to dig their car out from eight inches of snow this morning. But a cat named Oreo is having the hardest day of them all. You see, when Oreo woke up today his entire world had TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, thus leading him to question everything he believed about reality. This is a video of Oreo discovering snow for the first time. He doesn’t seem too happy about it. [YouTube]

It's The Ciiiiiiircle Of Life!

Kittens are basically useless at everything, which makes them perfect stand-ins for Disney movie reenactments. Some grownups with a lot of time on their hands corralled a small child and a bunch of behbeh kittehs for a somewhat comprehensive reenactment of “The Lion King,” songs included. They’re no Jonathan Taylor Thomas, but they’ll do! [Mashable]

Keeping Cats As Pets Began 5,000 Years Ago

lil bub

It might be hard to believe, but cats weren’t always domesticated pets. Once upon a time, someone actually invited these tyrants into the house and the rest, as they say, is history.

According to recent findings, the first wild cat (or what we now call a stray) began hanging out with humans maybe over 5,000 years ago. While excavating a Stone Age village in China, researchers have found the earliest evidence of cats and humans — their first step in becoming the pets (and Internet stars) we love today.

Baby Jesus Nativity Scene Is Taken Over By Cats

Gold, frankincense, myrrh … and kitties? A snuggly bunch of feral cats have taken over a nativity scene in Brooklyn, laying in the manger between Mary and Joseph like they belong there instead of baby Jesus. The two sisters who display the nativity every year told People magazine that the kitties always knock Jesus off his bed of hay. What would you expect? They’re cats. That’s their hay now. But in all seriously, this gives me a big case of the Awwwwwws. Nothing says the Christmas spirit quite like giving a warm, dry place to sleep for some homeless animals. I think Jesus would approve.
