Fellini’s Cat Litter Tray: Abstract
Hubert Fellini has invented a collapsible litter tray made of corrugated cardboard that he believes could replace conventional litter boxes and solve many problems, including the spread of bacteria, dust, and the smell of urine and feces. He patented his invention in 2004 in Canada and the United States. Unfortunately, he has had trouble penetrating the North American market. In 2014, frustrated by his many unsuccessful marketing attempts, he wondered: “What should I do to successfully launch my innovative, user-friendly product?”.
