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.

    I wonder how his cat got so aerodynamic....was it ran over....LOL

    I wonder whether the guy who designed the copter compensated for tail wind, in case the cat passed gas after passing on. With experimental aircraft you can never be too careful.

    It's not sick, it's dead. Bereft of life. The pussy has passed on to meet its maker. Gone up to join the Choir Invisible, etc. It is an ex-cat.

    When I first saw the picture I was STOKED! I thought the cat was alive and flying. Bummer that he's dead, but this is WAY better than burying him in the back yard.

    These dead and stuffed pets just lay there. flying is way cooler.

    Again, no middle option. No different than someone getting his pet mounted (stuffed).

    To each their own.

    What if the cat aspired to something loftier?

    No different than the Meat Dress or the freeze-dried cow sliced like bologna. Art has a long history of this. A Dada·ist early last century displayed a urinal as Art. It's sometimes (often?) necessary to employ Chutzpah & wake people (sheeple, hubots) out of the Spell of Denial most are obliviously in.

    The little boy who blurted "he's naked" from the 'Emperor's New Clothes' is TextBook.

    I think the cat was unhinged -- those legs look awfully stiff. I was wondering about landing gear, and then it occurred to me that the cat was probably male.

    What is wrong with this artist? I don't even believe in stuffing and preserving pets. We get too attached to ours and it would be awful to be reminded every day of its passing.We don't stuff our grandmothers so why animals? Remember grand-children it is not a good idea.

    I think you're the one who needs therapy. Don't Judge (Matthew 7:1).

    Going against the bible isn't a reason for needing therapy…
    Secondly, trust me, there are plenty of Christians going against that.
