"Rocket-Cat" Blasts Out of Obscurity

This recent story reminds me of an old morbid joke I heard as a kid. To this day, I still feel ashamed laughing at it: 
How do you make a dog meow? You freeze it overnight and come morning, you run it through an electric saw - Meeeeeeaaaaoooooooowwww.
Now how do you get a cat to bark? You douse it with gas and light a match - Woooooof!
Now that I've gotten this black humor out of the way, you might be interested in reading up about the infamous "Medieval rocket-cat" that's been going around the internet lately... turns out that 1) Yes, this is a real picture, and 2) No, the cat was not part of some sort of medieval space program.
