Cats away! Artist turns his dead pet into flying helicopter after it is killed by a car

You’ve got to read this–I was freaked out at first, but then I started to think about all the really strange things done by cats that lived with me over the years and I can’t help but think they would approve.  This post is is in honor of Amber, Squid Fishless, Eleven, Liqourish, Diamond, and LexiCat.

If I’m ever going to get reblogs, this is the ticket….(you know you want to).

UPDATE: They seem to have overcome the initial thrust and stability issues.

    1. Oh, the wonders of taxidermy….


  2. Mark Twain would’ve loved this. He seemed fascinated with cats – either dead or alive. They’re everywhere in his writings . . .


    1. They’re everywhere under my feet, too, constantly conditioning me to conform to their needs. I tried to intimidate them, intellectually, by mentioning Schrödinger, but they were not amused. Not one bit.
