Blikvanger is "eye-catcher" according the google language tools translator. It's a hoop designed to catch trash thrown by passing cyclists... After using the translator, I plain googled the term and found a funny photo on the city site of Helden. I'm reposting the photo down below but first,
Cats say "miauw" in the Netherlands.
The cat behind this blikvanger did not want to be petted.
Perhaps he was wary of Dutch teenagers cycling past with one hand and foot in the air, trailed by flying soda cans.
