Candle Balloons: An instructional YTMND
UPDATED: After further experimentation, i have found that the balloon should be at least twice as big as this one, and should have about 20 full sized candles in the engine stick

See how many balloons you'd need to carry a cat, and attach some type of steering mechanism for the cat.

Nice. Extra star for "make sure you don't burn down anything important." I'll have to find out what that dropcloth stuff is, because I have no idea what it's called over here.

Also, "attach some type of steering mechanism for the cat." wins for best comment.
