Every cat owner knows that one day they’ll have to say good-bye to their cat for the last time. When Dutch artist Bart Jansen found that his beloved cat Orville got hit by a car, he teamed up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the stuffed cat’s body.

Dubbed the Orvillecopter, the device is ‘half cat, half machine’, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his cat Orville who loved birds. While the idea of turning a dead cat into an art project may seem a bit strange, it’s definitely one way to remember a beloved cat.
