MEOW's about that then? A wacky artist has turned his dead cat into a toy helicopter.
Dutchman Bart Jansen had his pet tabby Orville stuffed after he was accidentally run over by a car. Then he teamed up with radio controlled helicopter expert Arjen Beltman to attach propellers to each of Orville's four paws. The moggy — named after pioneering aviator Orville Wright — is now a piece of art. 
Tribute ... Jansen with his pet
Named the Orvillecopter, the piece is on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam. Jansen said his creation is "half cat, half machine", and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his pet.

Lift-off ... the Orvillecopter in flight
He revealed: "He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday."So this hopping will soon change into steady flight."


  1. We need to make Luna into a submarine and Liam into a plane!!!! LOL just kidding.

    I don't know how I feel about this, wouldn't JUST stuffing it be enough? Making your furry dead friend into a play thing is morbid.....

  2. I dont know its to weird for me. I think Luna and Liam would be best suited to be buried like a normal animal should. lol
