Dutch artist Bart Jansen says he loved his cat, Orville.
So when Orville lost the last of his nine lives, Jansen decided that a fitting tribute would be to turn his pet into a "permanent piece of artwork," as The Daily Mail says.
A flying piece of artwork, that is.
To let Orville soar with the birds he apparently loved, Jansen had the cat's body stuffed and attached to a radio control helicopter. (Side note: that's not a sentence we ever imagined writing.)
Orville, by the way, was named after — of course — Orville Wright.
