Yeah, I need a Samurai cat for my next throwdown with the Yakuza up the street.

The armor is beautiful and cool but in an essentially useless kind of way. Bummer about the links at first, thanks for fixing them inside.

The Question and Answer section is pretty interesting. It doesn't go into too much detail about the processes or theories behind specific armors, but that's more than made up for with this mental image:

I have not put a mouse into a suit of armour. I have, however, tried it with one of my cats, and have the scars to prove it. Yes, it can be done, but that's not the point. I think the fact that this question keeps being asked has more to do with a wish to fulfil the image in some way.

FYI, If you use a browser that throws dead domain results to google, you'll find that Microsoft is the first result in a search for "http". So poorly formatted (http//http) links will often send you to MS.

Catt&Whitney - I can see Kitty soaring to Die Walk├╝re/Ride of the Valkyries now!

My dog would almost wear that mask. For about half a second. *heh*

Wow. I was just expecting a cuteness factor but that stuff looks quite impressive.

I have, however, tried it with one of my cats, and have the scars to prove it.

I was just thinking, where's the armor to wear while fitting your cat. My cat wouldn't stand for it. And my dog wouldn't wear his armor unless the cat was wearing his.
