JEFFERSON, Ind. — Nearly 20 years ago, Diane Kircher borrowed a Cat Fancy magazine from a friend and, inside, found just what she had been looking for.

"When I saw it, I thought 'that's exactly what I need,'" the 60-year-old Jeffersonville resident said.

Having a firefighter for a husband and being the owner of several cats, Kircher had long been looking for a way to protect her animals in the event of a fire. What she found in the magazine was an advertisement for stickers that could be placed on a home’s windows or doors and would tell responding firefighters that animals were trapped inside.
