Image Number 10 for United States Patent #5377619.
A pet cage provided with a barrier made of a plurality of thin, flexible plastic or metal wires stretched between a cage top and base which are spaced apart by a support post. The thin wires are effective as a physical barrier and practically do not block the passage of light or airflow to and from the cage interior. Thus, the inventive pet cage barrier enhances the pet owner's enjoyment by Improving the balance between the confining and visibility functions of the cage. The flexible nature of the pet cage barrier allows the cage to be packaged in a folded, compact fashion which is easily transported, and the simple design enables quick assembly, both desirable features unavailable in existing cage designs.
