Dead Cat Becomes Helicopter
This is quite possibly the oddest animal story I've ever featured here.
Dutch artist and cat lover Bart Jansen suffered a terrible blow when his beloved cat Orville was struck by a car and killed. Orville was named after one of the Wright brothers, the fathers of aviation, a sign that Jansen might have an odd obsession with the subject of flight.
That's born out by what Jansen decided to do with Orville's body: he stuffed it and turned it into a helicopter. Orville's is now permanently in a spread-eagle position, with small propellors attached to each foot, and he's fully capable of flying.
Watch the video to see the "Orvillecopter" in action.
