Orville certainly isn't the first cat to fly, but he may be the first cat to do so under his own power.

I have a dark sense of humor, but this seems pretty disrespectful — and chasing cows with the thing just makes it worse. This is in bad taste.

without even bothering with the video (which I trust will ruin it) this is, at this point, probably the funniest thread I’ve ever seen.

“omg it’s already getting better!”

And the narration is in Dutch.

I am so doing that to Sky when he passes on. Cayanne is way too fat and lazy to be honored that way. But Sky would appreciate it.

FUBO. If we hadn’t flushed Bin Laden, just think of the effect that being strafed by his corpse would have on the cave dwellers. The ‘Airwolf’ theme would add to the moment as well.

As a cat-lover I tried to be shocked and dismayed but I was laughing too hard. I wish I understood Dutch -- they've gotta be saying some weird stuff. My favorite part is when he's chasing the cows.

Yeah, this thread has potential. :)

LOL, I thought it was AWESOME, then again, I'm like a Jedi Master of bad taste.

I think this thing should be combined with with the "taco drone" that was in the news a couple months ago.

Just imagine the reaction if someone's cat passed away and you surprised them with the "quadcopter" version of kitty.

"Look honey, he's new and improved!"
