But not Dutch artist Bart Jansen. Nope - when his beloved cat Orville was run over by a car, Jansen chose to... turn him into a remote controlled helicopter.
Oh, I wish I was joking. The contraption, known as the 'Orvillecopter', is currently on display at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam.
Jansen, who thankfully placed Orville's propellers posthumously, apparently said that he was paying tribute to his deceased pet by allowing him to finally play with the birds.
Still don't believe me? Here is the cinematic proof...
"Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it's a dead cat..."
