PATENTED OUTDOOR CAT ENCLOSURE EARNS NATIONAL AWARD FOR NEVADA COUPLE; CAT FENCE-IN PRODUCTS LET FELINES FROLIC FREELY AND FEARLESSLY

 SPARKS, Nev., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- What began three years ago as a quest by two cat lovers to find a safe way for their feline friends to play in the fresh air and bright sunshine of their home has grown into a flourishing, award-winning business for a Sparks couple. Bud and Georgia Heath's patented Cat Fence-In products, a line of barriers that prevent capricious kitties from escaping the confines of their fenced yard, and other four-legged wanderers from getting in, received Cat Fancy magazine's 1992 Editor's Choice Award as one of the 10 best cat products of the year. The results of the competition were published in the February 1993 edition of the largest national cat fanciers publication.
 A panel of cat experts, including a veterinarian, freelance writers, and animal behavior experts deemed Cat Fence-In an exceptional, innovative product. Other winners include Arco Chemical Co. and Wysong Foods, a national manufacturer of premium pet foods.
 Cat Fence-In manufactures a variety of expandable barriers that prevent cats from climbing or jumping over fences or into trees. Designed by former building contractor Bud Heath, the Cat Fence-In system easily attaches just below the top of any wood, chain link or masonry fencing. The narrow mesh, non-electric netting and bracket fence attachments keep cats in and unwanted animal visitors out. The sheer materials used make the system entirely unobtrusive.
 Since founding the company three years ago, Bud and his wife Georgia, who serves as president of the company, have manufactured and sold nearly 1,000 units throughout the country. Demand for the product is so great that the Heaths now operate the business on a full-time basis from their Sparks home.
 "Ours is really a case of necessity being the mother of invention," said Bud, general manager of the company. "We wanted to allow our cats out in the yard to play, but there was no way to prevent them from getting over the fence." Bud experimented with a few different designs before developing the present system.
 All Cat Fence-In products are backed by a guarantee of 100-percent satisfaction. And the stacks of letters from appreciative cat owners attest to Cat Fence-In's effectiveness. "We've only had one customer return our merchandise," remarks Georgia, "He is a man on the East Coast who was using Cat Fence-In to create an enclosure for a bobcat." Since then, the Heaths specify that their products are for "domestic cats" only.
