Blessing a Cat - A Protection Spell for a Cat

Hold your cat’s face in your hands so you can look he/she in the eyes and say these kind words:

Bast of beauty and of grace,
Protectress of the feline race,
Shield (name) from all hurt and harm
And keep him/her always safe and warm.
Watch over (name) from day to day
And guide him/her home, if he/she should stray.
And grant him/her much happiness
And a good life free of strife and stress.

Thank you!

Say what you like. I am not ashamed of my
walls. My boundaries are my own and
purposed for my shelter while I am in healing
and vulnerable. I am regrouping. Life can wait.
When I am good and ready I will climb them.
Until then, let me be.

About the only way I can think of to help the Ferguson protesters is to design protection that can be made en masse with little skill, time or resources. I’m not comfortable designing weapons but a means to protect people from batons, rubber bullets and attack dogs would be ideal. Its a pipe dream to build anything that will stand up to small arms fire but I do think this could slow down a bullet enough to prevent death. There will still be penetration but hopefully it would stop before the organs are compromised. The suit should be stabproof.

I got the idea after building a pure foam suit for paintballing. Just using two layers of foam glued together was able to significantly halt impact when I tested it. There is a youtube tutorial for making quite thick foam mats conform to shape and make basic plates. This would be a good first step to make a mold for the rest of the armour. In my research I’ve found medieval recreators cutting up plastic food grade barrels, heating the plates up and conforming it to their body shapes. The plastic can withstand a huge amount of abuse in the full contact battles. This will make up a good main layer to provide protection and can be found cheaply online.

Polyurethane bedliner has proven itself time and time again for impact resistance. Its easily applied and can be bought in large quantities for relatively low cost. There is a wide array of options. Fire resistant mixes, blast resistant mixes, anti spall for bulletproofing too. The straps can be made out of basically anything. Old belts, rope, velcro or even strong duct tape if applied enough. Having a solid plate over centre mass and along the spine of the limb plates would be ideal but possibly expensive. Sheet metal would be costly and harder to work with. Wood is cheap but heavy. Both would be ideal for stopping blades, batons and rubber bullets. Finally the flexible plating over the shoulder would need to be fashioned with smaller overlapping plates to allow flex without compromising protection.

I’m not willing to design helmets due to them being readily available off the shelf and being far superior to homemade gear. The suit should be able to be constructed in 4 hours and cost about 80 dollars per person. Granted not everyone can do this or afford it but its better than nothing. The suit could also be helpful in a shtf scenario for a multitude of reasons. Hopefully I’ll have a prototype built soon.
