The usual course of action when a pet dies is to say your last goodbyes and dig a hole in your backyard so "Mittens" can rest in eternal peace. Not the case with Dutch artist Bart Jansen. After Jansen's cat was killed by a car, the artists turned his dead cat into a remote controlled helicopter.

Yup, the flying feline has is being called the "Orvillecopter" after the American aviator Orville Wright. The tanned hide now flies by way of remote control and can be seen propelled in air at Jansen's command.
