We discuss the construction of bulk operators in asymptotically AdS spacetimes, including the interiors of AdS black holes. We use this to address the question "If Schrodinger's cat were behind the horizon of an AdS black hole, could we determine its state by a measurement in the dual CFT?" We argue that the answer is affirmative, but this assumes a complete knowledge of both the bulk and boundary dynamics. © 2012 SISSA.
