HELI-KITTEN

Taxidermy Cat Takes to the Air

I can haz propellers? Dutch artist Bart Jansen stuffed his cat Orville and affixed propellers to his paws after the kitty—named after Orville Wright—was hit by a car. Perhaps we should just be happy Jansen allowed all nine of Pussum’s lives to expire before he made the cat airworthy. “After a period of mourning, he received his propellers posthumously,” Jansen told reporters. Now a remote-controlled terror to all mouse-kind, a YouTube video shows the Orvillecopter hovering about head height off the ground. Jansen unveiled his macabre creation at the Kunstrai Art Festival in Amsterdam.
