This is not a fake! :prophead:

The artist Bart Jansen from the Netherlands built a quadrocopter using a dead cat (!).

Wrong in so many ways, this guy obviously has no respect for deceased animals.

He says the cat was run over by a car. He didn't do it in disrespect, he claims.

I don't see a moral problem here. Stuffed animals can be found all over the world.

I don't like it.
The pic is ridiculously funny but then the realisation of a dead cat sets in.

As and when my cat dies, I'd be giving her a bloody good send off, the same way I did for my dad.

Hey, where'd my post go?

Sure, there was a video in it, but jesus, there's a large photo of a cat with four rotors at the top of the page. What gives??

My problem, now that you ask in a rather curt manner, is that you seem to have deleted something due to personal feelings, not due to any rule breach.

But hey, you have moderator under your avatar, do whatever the ###### you want!

It's a little entertaining, but it's also very :censored: up.

It's one thing seeing a picture of a dead cat with rotors attached to it.
Seeing a video of said dead cat in motion is a little bit too much for me. I'm sorry but I have moderator under my avatar, so I can do whatever the ###### I want!

The cat is dead, folks. Just as dead as every animal that has ever died.

And yup, it is creepy as ######. Cool copter, though.

Not every day when someone says: "There's a dead cat, lets turn it into a toy helo". I approve.

why are people making such a big deal out of this, I think it would be awesome if after I was dead someone could stuff me and make me fly around all day. It is my dream to fly after all. lol

In 1945, a young girl named katu lata kulu came over to America in a grey boat from Africa. A mysterious flying cat killed her by cutting the word "LATUALATUKA" into her back using its rotors. now that you have read this message, she will come to your house on a full moon and steal your soul unless you repost this 3 times.
