Is Turning Your Dead Cat Into a Helicopter Cool or Creepy?

File this under "something we'd never even think of doing... ever!" Dutch Artist Bart Jansen turned his dead cat into a helicopter! Upset after losing his cat, Orville, after it was hit by a car, Jansen decided to stuff his pet and transform his body into a remote-controlled helicopter.



Aptly named the "Orvillecopter," the half-cat, half machine even made its debut at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam last weekend. But he doesn't fly perfectly quite yet. But Jensen plans to fix that problem as soon as he can. "He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday,” Jansen said. Do you think turning your dead cat into a helicopter is a cool way to keep him around -- or is it just plain creepy?

    Strikes me as a little disrespectful, it's a carcass, put him in the ground, let him decompose and give back to the earth.

    Hey, get over it. It's a cat and it's HIS cat. Think about how we treat veal calves and minks. At least he cared for the cat it's whole life. This shows real creativity and a unique sense of humor. Also I think it may be hard to find places in Amsterdam to bury cats. But I hear the Chinese restaurants will take them.

    It is sad to lose a beloved pet. It might be useful to stuff certain animals for museums, but not this way.

    LOL! His cat must've been into yoga, I've never seen one do the splits like that. Do the paws come down for landing gear? Maybe it looks a little furrier than most helicopters, but if it flies it flies, right? I hope I can buy one at a reasonable cost -- I need to defend my home from flying squirrels, and old cat flying cat stopped working, now it only levitates a few feet off the ground (see photo below).

    On the other hand I'm tempted to wait for the pet piglet model, as I think it would be good for winning bets and would look really cute flying around wearing a little police officer's cap and dark glasses.

    And I am sure that you dogs wont either..... By the way. I actually wrote what I did, solely on the look that guy was giving his cat... Well, that and the rest of it pertained to the lack of being anybody's business but his....Just a thought...
