"Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear?"

A quoted description on a charity auction by eBay user mightys0x -- for a hand-made guinea pig helmet and scale-mail.
Since Sunday morning, the guinea pig armor has gotten 75 bids, taking its present value to $1, 350.

With 3 days left in the auction, that amount is likely to go up. The item description states 100 % of the earnings go to Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue, a non-profit firm in Virginia committed to rehabilitating, rescuing  and acquiring fresh homes for unwanted guinea pigs. Based on its website, MGPR additionally aims to teach many people regarding the right way of looking after guinea pigs.
