 Many conceptual difficulties of quantum mechanics can be nicely illustrated by Schrödinger'​s cat being in a superposition of dead and alive. In particular, Bohr's famous transition between quantum and classical world is challenged. The measurement problem shows up as well: Is the cat an observer or part of the (quantum mechanical) system? The recent experimental developments in quantum optics and atomic ensembles allow us nowadays to coherently control larger and larger systems. ​ The creation of Schrödinger cat states is more and more in reach, even if its size is not at all at the level of real cats. Many conceptual difficulties of quantum mechanics can be nicely illustrated by Schrödinger'​s cat being in a superposition of dead and alive.
