Orville is a cat. Orville was named after the aviation pioneer, Orville Wright. Orville’s owner, clearly obsessed with aviation, decided that his dying cat’s last wish would be to fly. Wish granted.
Orville the Cat, was turned into a helicopter.
From Sky News:
An artist has turned his cat into a flying helicopter after it was killed by a car.Dutchman Bart Jansen stuffed Orville before teaming up with a radio control helicopter expert to attach propellers to each of its four paws.The cat – named after pioneering aviator Orville Wright – is now a piece of artwork. The “Orvillecopter” is on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam.Jansen said his creation is “half cat, half machine”, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his pet.
And here’s the disturbing video…
Now Mr. Jansen, I’m quite sure your cat shared your love of aviation, because what cat doesn’t dream about flight, in between 23 hours of sleeping on the newspaper?
But I’m also fairly sure that upon his passing, his last request wasn’t to be transformed into Kitty Hawk Down.
