Calgary based artist Jeff de Boer crafts protective ensembles for cats and mice. He draws inspiration from different time periods and countries, including Edo period Japan and Medieval England. Each piece of armour can take up to 200 hours to create.
"Boer has never put a mouse in the armor, but he has put one of his cats inside and has the scars to prove it." Pieces sell for as much as $25,000. I guess I won't be buying one for Joyce.
