Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but the cat is dead, it is incapable of having any feelings.

It is a great idea though.

If I can throw a can of tomato juice and some paint buckets on a white canvas and call it art, then I suppose this could be called art too. :rolleyes: Kinda sick though.

what a sicko... imagine your dead grandmother being turned into a toy like that. disgusting. reminds me of Gunter von Hagens (he kind of tries to make art with corpses), i once visited an exhibition of his, some stuff was really interesting (especially if you work in medicine, which i don't), some stuff was just plain desecration of corpses. the crossection of the bowels of a guy who died of constipation was a sight to behold though.:eek:
some of his "art" (nsfw i guess):

Why so serious Tix mate, humans do way, way sicker stuff to our furry and feathery friends on a daily basis in the name of efficient food production.

I dont think anyone would consider doing the same to a human, excepting the "art" of von Hagens. There is definitely a line to be crossed somewhere in the name of art, but this is far from doing that.

Cat surely don't mind... :D

sure, the cat doesn't mind. but still it's pretty sick... it's unethical and stating it's a tribute to the dead cat is just ridiculous. this "event" doesn't deserve the media attention it has drawn (stuff like this on the internet can be considered normal, but seeing a 3-minute report on so-called "news" on a less reputable tv station made me rage).

Honestly I'm agreeing with tixhal here. And how does anyone come up with an idea to make a helicopter out of a cat? I did think about making a fur cap or mittens out of my dead cats fur, but not turn it into a helicopter!

Should have just skinned it and made a winter over coat for the next family cat.

^^ that would be useful, compared to a goddamn remote controlled helicopter.
since i was young our family had at least one cat (+ some half wild ones that chose to give birth to their young on our property and stuck around), i consider them part of the family. stuff like this is no way to honor a dead "family member" even if it is "just a pet".
