Question Cat-a-copter??

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...illed-car.html

Many animal lovers find it hard to part with their pets when they die. So when cat Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, was run over by a car, his artist owner decided to turn him into a permanent piece of artwork as the ultimate tribute by transforming him into a flying helicopter. Dutch artist Bart Jansen first stuffed Orville before teaming up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the cat.

he end result, named the Orvillecopter, is now on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam where visitors can watch Orville flying for themselves.

I love my cat and I laughed. They need to add a Go-Pro camera and go after birds.

Disturbing and funny in a very warped way at the same time . . .

My brain went straight to Looney Tunes of course . . . Sylvester and Tweety.

I lol'd.... Then showed my OH as he hates cats. He lol'd.

I was speechless for some time though. I hope they turn me into something cool after I'm gone. A kite maybe... Or a trampoline lol.

That's kinda creepy. I LOVE my cats but when they pass I wouldn't do something like that. Nor would I do something like that for my dogs and I love them dearly too. Reminds me of the new show Stuffed on Animal Planet...really creepy.
