A few weeks ago I bought one of those tiny remote control helicopters for a friend's birthday present. I figured he'd get a kick out of it, and I was kind of hoping his dog would too.
It turns out it's kind of tricky to control, but still fun to use. His dog, however couldn't have seemed much less interested. Cats, on the other hand, seem to be fascinated.
Unfortunately my friend is allergic to cats, but I'm seriously pondering spending $30 on a helicopter now. I'm sure our cat would kill it within a few days, but the images of our little kitty acting like King Kong atop the Empire State Building, swatting at flying machines would be priceless.
Random Good Stuff dug up a few more videos of cats n copters.
Update: I'd just like to point out that this video is not actually our cat. Some readers seemed to think it was, but I want to give credit where it's due, which in this case means to some person on YouTube. All I'm saying is I think our cat would show at least as much interest in a helicopter as this one.
