    Flying Cats...

    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.



    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 love my cats but I definitely don't think I'll be turning them into RC aircraft after they're dead.

    I can just see how much fun that would be to watch Ocat and the dog.
