What does a cat in a box mean?

The physics idea: the cat in the box exists and doesn’t exist at the same time? Is it like isolation? No one has had perception of me today so do I not exist?

Cat in a box seems like eating cats.

A cat in a box in my home means that I’m changing the litter in the near future.

if you feel pain you definitely exist. pinch yourself.

From my understanding that applies to quantum psysics. A particle can be in every place at once but you never know where it is until you observe it, until something interacts with it, like a photon.

The cat in the box is either dead or alive, but you cannot know which without opening the box to observe, so it stays basically in a quantum superposition of both simultaneously until observed.
