  • Publication number: 20190254253
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates in general to a pet habitat. The present disclosure describes a universal sill mountable device for mounting to a sill and a window, where the structure of windows and window systems vary. In particular, the present disclosure relates to a sill mountable device that includes selectably positionable leg for universal mounting, where the leg is affixed based at least in part on the width of the sill, so that the platform maintains a substantially horizontal posture when the device is mounted to a window.

  • Publication number: 20180249674
    Abstract: A hanging pet house has a first frame and a second frame. A fabric housing has a number of detachable sleeves that attach to the first frame and the second frame. A pair of connectors attach to a wall or window. A pair of strings attach to the pair of connectors and the second frame. Because the hanging pet house connects to a window it is out of the way and allows the cat to look outside and bask in the sun.

  • Publication number: 20180242556
    Abstract: A cat scratch toy has a housing with a truncated ellipsoid shape. The housing has a flat surface. There is a continuous track in a face of the flat surface. A ball is in the continuous track. In one case, the housing is made of cardboard. The cardboard is laminated sheets cut into different shapes. In one case, there is a bowl section and a cylindrical section affixed to an interior of the bowl section. The track is formed between the edge of the cylindrical section and a wall of the bowl section. The wobbly shape of the cat scratch toy along with the ball in the track keeps the cat endlessly entertained, while satisfying the cat's need to scratch.

  • Publication number: 20180220621
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a cat window structure that has a number of glass attachment devices. A shell is connected to the glass attachment devices. The shell and a section of a window form a housing. An opening is formed in the housing that provides access and egress for a cat. In one case, the shell is made of a fabric covered foamed plastic and the glass attachment devices are suction cups. The shell along with the window provides an enclosed structure that makes the cat feel safe. A bubble pod in the shell allows the cat to see out of the housing and the owner to see into the shell.

The shell and a section of a window form a housing. An opening is formed in the housing that provides access and egress for a cat. In one embodiment, the shell is made of a fabric covered foamed plastic and the glass attachment devices are suction cups. The shell provides a cradle to hold the cat, is inexpensive to make and ship, and the sling structure does not suffer from sliding when the cat jumps into or out of the structure.

  • Patent number: 9924697
    Abstract: A cat perch has a first set of suction cups. Each of the suction cups has a nipple with a hole extending through the nipple. A shelf has a first edge and a second edge. The first edge has a pin that extends through the hole in the nipple of one of the first set of suction cups. A set of straps extend from the second edge of the shelf to a second set of suction cups. Because the shelf is connected to the suction cups by a pin extending through the hole in the nipple of the suction cup, the shelf can be folded up and out of the way.

  • Publication number: 20130213308
    Abstract: A pet drinking bowl designed to keep water fresh has a first housing section containing a drinking bowl and a pump section. A second housing section covers the pump section. There is an inlet and an outlet between the bowl section and the pump section. A filter is adjacent to the inlet. A pump with an exit is connected to the outlet. The device may include a gravity feed water reservoir that has a conduit into the pump section. The first and second housing sections are made of dishwasher safe materials. The pet drinking bowl is a two cavity mold and the two housing sections snap fit together.

  • Patent number: 8366300
    Abstract: The invention is directed to an ornamental pond fish feeding indicator that has a housing with an indicator end. A first LED is enclosed in the housing at the indicator end of the housing. A second LED is also enclosed in the housing at the indicator end of the housing. A temperature sensing circuit is enclosed in the housing. The temperature sensing circuit transmits a signal to the first LED and the second LED. A float is attached to the housing. Using this invention, a pond owner can simply glance at his or her pond and determine whether or not to feed their fish based on the color of the light on top. The light on top of the indicator is red when pond water is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. If the pond water is 50 degrees or over, the light is green.

  • Patent number: 8197681
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a filter system for ornamental ponds and stock tanks that has a housing defining an internal chamber. A number of feet are located on a lower flat surface of the housing, which hold the housing off of the bottom of the pond. A filter slot in the lower surface holds a filter. A pump is inside the internal chamber of the housing and has an inlet inside the internal chamber and an outlet outside the internal chamber of the housing. When the filter system is submerged, the pump draws water in along the bottom of the body of water through the filter. As a result, the debris on the bottom of the body of water is drawn into the filter. Once the debris is drawn into the filter, microbes in the filter are able to break down the debris.

  • Patent number: 8028721
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a heated garden hose that has a flexible hose with an inlet and an outlet. The garden hose has an inlet coupler and an outlet coupler. A heating cable coupler is connected between the inlet and the outlet of the flexible hose. A heating cable has a first end with an electrical plug and extends through the heating cable coupler into the interior of the flexible hose. The heating cable is free floating inside the flexible hose. A thermostat, attached to the exterior portion of the heating cable, controls the heating cable and is designed to turn the heating cable off just above the freezing temperature of water. A clip is inserted into the flexible hose near the outlet to hold the heating cable inside of the flexible hose.

  • Publication number: 20100200562
    Abstract: A system for keeping a hose ice free has a flexible housing for holding a garden hose. The housing has an interior space that holds a heater. A thermostat controls the heater. The heater may be a foil heater. An insulating layer is placed between heater and the housing. The system may have two thermostats that control the heater. One thermostat measures an exterior temperature and when the temperature is just above the freezing point of water the thermostat turns off the power to the heater. A second thermostat is in series with the first thermostat. The second thermostat measures a temperature of the interior space. The second thermostat is set to turn off the power to the heater when the interior temperature reaches around room temperature, approximately eighty degrees Fahrenheit. The housing may have a drawstring or zipper to allow access to the interior space.
