Does anyone else find this disturbing? lol...

Cats may get nine lives, but not quite like this.A Dutch artist, upset over losing his beloved pet, Orville, had the animal stuffed and transformed its body into a remote-controlled helicopter, Sky News reported Monday (http://news.sky.com/home/strange-news/article/16240998).The “half cat, half machine” piece of art was dubbed the “Orvillecopter.” The cat, who was killed when it was hit by a car, was named after famed American aviator Orville Wright.“After a period of mourning, he received his propellers posthumously,” Jansen said.

Just like Orville Wright was a pioneer of early human aviation, Orville is the pioneer of feline aviation.

Man, could you imagine if that magnotta character had taken his time to come up with this? Instead of mailing out body parts just fly the body around the city....

too soon?

I don't see how this is any worse than wearing a fur coat or putting dead animal heads on the wall...lol I laughed.

Well, I believe his cat died of natural causes and was not killed solely for the purpose of stuffing it and using it as a helicopter lol

The expression on the cat-copter's face is priceless. The thing looks genuinely freaked out.

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first dronecat. Fluffy will be that cat. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."

Turns out this cat is more elusive than your llama.

This article has got my mind all broken. On one hand I find it disturbing, on the other hand I find the idea of having a cat on a RC helicopter amusing. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
