They say there’s more than one way to skin a cat, and this is perhaps the most creative method ever invented. Creative and…very odd.

From this story on boingboing:

Dutch artist Bart Jansen had a cat named Orville that he loved very much. When Orville died, he did what any cat-loving guy would do: transformed his deceased kitty pal’s corpse into a radio-controlled DIY taxidermy helicopter. WAIT WHAT? The Orvillecopter, half cat, half machine. Named after the famous aviator Orville Wright. He was killed by a car. After that he received his propellers posthumously.

This is Orvillecopter’s first test flight, Soon to be flying with the birds. 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. For the catlovers: it is a tanned hide, just like the shoes you’re wearing. For the RC lovers: it’s a Lotus T580


That’s right, some dude loved his cat so much that after it died he turned it into a remote-controlled kitty-copter. And so of course that begs the question: what mount would you choose to turn into such a creation? Personally, I think a bobwhite quailicopter or maybe a blue-winged tealicopter would be, pardon the pun, heli-cool. And there are some intriguing decoy possibilities, too. This thing combined with a roboduck would be awesome, until you mistook it for a real bird. And sporting clays! Don’t forget sporting clays. The mind boggles, man…
