I find this Dutch museum display unpleasant and misleading. It is a stuffed tabby cat and stuffed birds together with what appears to be a picked fish (in formaldehyde). The idea is to tell the story of domestic cat predation. Not only is it unpleasand it also misleads. Humans directly or indirectly kill far more birds and destroy far more wildlife. And bird predation by cats are rather vague estimates.
