This does give new meaning to "reuse".

GREAT PLAY ON WORDS, Leila!

Oh dear, the cat is definitely out of the bag.

This cat helicopter rates right up there with flying pigs...

ANd the idea for repurposing the St.Bernard for a Harley is great, too. It would give extra padding in case of a spill.

You could use the little keg around his neck as a gas tank. Lift the back leg to change the oil.

Cats are cuter than nasty photos of disasters, terrorists, bombed cities, war atrocities, rape trials, celebrity marriages and divorces...

This website is a great idea for cat lovers and news hounds. News + kitties =

I think not!

Recent news stories in Canada I like to read about but don't necessarily want the pics of-

Taliban justice- 21 yr old woman killed in front of cheering Afghani male crowd. Pics were included in the news.
Male porn star/murderer sent body parts of his victim to random politicians for maximum news exposure. Don't you love when the serial killers get facebook fan pages and the victims and their grieving families are forgotten by the media? I sure do! *sarcasm*

My point? Cats are cuter than gross photos of wars, bombings, 'honour killings', etc.

Death is a strange thing.

I guess some people might be uncomfortable with the cat helicopter, but the cat was hit by a car, not killed to create the helicopter. I think that the owner of that cat, in his own mind, was honouring him by doing that. It's not what I would have done, but maybe we all have our own ways of paying tribute to our lost friends. Who are any of us to say which is the most appropriate way to dispose of a dead body? I was raised to believe that the best thing is for a dead person to be taken to a special place to be burned, at great expense, leaving all the work to be done by professionals. Now I'm in Portugal, death is much more hands on and I've had to prepare bodies myself, and sat up and watched over them overnight, not leaving their sides until they are safely buried in the local cemetery, knowing that in seven years they will be dug up again to make room for more.

How you treat your friends in life is much more relevant, in my opinion, than any 'rights and wrongs' about what to do with a body after death. It looked to me like that cat had a decent life and was much loved by his owner. If he'd been mine I would either have buried him or put him in the compost pile, either way making sure that he would once again have become part of the cycle of life that I am creating on my land. But I also have total respect for someone doing things differently.

Let him compost away.
I understand that there's a trend toward 'greener' funeral/burial/composting coffins. Good.
The business of death should get greener too, eh? Not just greener options for babies , toddlers, etc, I mean.

I was thinking about doing something similar, I came across these interesting Carved Skulls , how about attaching one of those to a drone lol
