Man turns his dead cat into a remote controlled Helicopter

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.

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

Jansen said the Orvillecopter is ‘half cat, half machine’, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his cat Orville.

Jansen, part of the art cooperative Generaal Pardon, said: ‘After a period of mourning he received his propellers posthumously.’

He added that Orville will soon be ‘flying with the birds’ stating: ‘Oh how he loved birds. He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.’

I think this is a better mechanical way to pay tribute to a beloved cat.

I find this both weirdly funny, and sick & disturbing, at the same time. :scratch:

Is it a hoax source?

I would be to sad to see my kitties everyday like this after they died

I don't find it anymore "sick" than burning someone after they die and keeping them in a jar.

It's all just weird.

Interesting analogy but I think this is no different than doing the same to a human being, weird.
