Outrage and disgust are some of the reactions to a Dutch artist's attempt to honor his dead cat by turning him into a helicopter. Bart Jansen considers it a tribute. The cat's name was Orville. He and his brother, Wilbur, were named after the Wright brothers. But when Orville was hit by a car, Jansen took the cat to a taxidermist where they crafted the body into an ultra-light frame. Each paw has a propeller and the entire aircraft is remote controlled. CNN's Jeanne Moos reports.
