Video: Dead cat turned into a helicopter

No, really.

A DUTCH ARTIST has turned his dead cat into a radio control flying helicopter.

In a move that is sure to disturb cat lovers and cat owners, Bart Jansen decided to make use of the cat after it was knocked down by a car, giving a new meaning to the belief that a cat has nine lives.

He stuffed the cat before teaming up with a radio control helicopter expert to stick propellers to each of its four paws, Sky News reports.

The cat, named Orville after the pioneering aviator Orville Wright, is known as The Orvillecopter.

The Orvillecopter is currently on display at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam, Holland.

On the YouTube information, it says: “After the cat was killed by a car, and followed by a period of mourning, visual artist Bart Jansen transformed him into the Orvillecopter: Now he is finally flying with the birds. The greatest goal a cat could ever reach!”

Indeed.
