Fluffy Goes to Battle

The battle between two age-old enemies just got tougher. Canadian artist Jeff de Boer has created specially designed suits of armor for both mice and their deadly foes--cats. Boy do I wish I had some pets right now. How hilarious would it be to have your cat wandering around in a full set of armor?

Check out more pictures (and learn how to make a Samurai Cat) here.

I like the mouse armor better that the sat armor. It just seems more...fantasy-ish.

Let's hope the rats of the Shadow City don't get their hands on those!

Sameanonymous: Why does your teacher refuse to read it?

IM: Great point! I hadn't thought of that.

Great find, those are awesome. I'd be afraid to kit out cat out, though, she already rules the house, she'd probably take over the world and humanity would be relegated to a supporting role involving rodent breeding, dairy gathering, and toast making (yes, she likes toast...a lot).

Today's just been a great day for art altogether. Check out this from the BBC... the top one has reignited my desire to go on some kind of steampunk airship trip (tomorrow's reading list: The Twenty-one Balloons, The Big Chunk of Ice, The Airship Ladyship Adventure, and a large amount of Jules Verne).

cooool! I want a pet :( I agree with everbody above--the mouse is more mystic new ageish, but the cat has a romance/anciect fighter look--I can see Tom and Jerry going at it in them :)

Gamma, can you tell me how you put in that link? Because whenever I put in links they run of the edge of the page and then nobody can use them.

To put in an HTML link:


Make sure you only change the things that are in capitals (for example, you need to leave the ""s in for it to work), and make sure you use the full address, like instead of just . Oh and use preview to make sure it works right!
