A Prince George man has been selected from hundreds to face the fearsome five dragons featured on the televised Dragons Den show on CBC.

John Geleen has an invention he's confident the Dragons will want to invest in.

His idea is based on the location and workings of a window air conditioner unit, but his prototype is designed for a pet house cat.

Called a Cat Flat Comfort Station, Geleen's boxy invention is installed in a window with the inside being flush with the inside wall, and is fitted with a ramp that gives kitty access and acts as a scratching pole.

Emptying the litter box means simply opening the "bathroom" door, pulling out a covered tray and emptying it.

"It's perfect for anyone living with a house cat, but especially for those in smaller spaces like apartments and condos," said Geleen, who was auditioned March 11 in Prince George by a Dragon's Den producer who kept him talking for almost an hour. Read more in The Citizen.
