My philosophy is that it is wise to be knowledgeable and prepared, yet I hope that everything works out well. ย Hurricane season will begin in a few weeks, other areas are already experiencing natural disasters like earthquakes and wild fires โ€ฆ of course disasters can also occur on a more personal level, but it weโ€™re prepared, our stress is reduced and that is always a good thing.

Lastly, you might find this chart of common household medication, which can and canNOT be used for pets (and the dosage) helpful:

  1. If a new earthquake occur here, on the opposite side of that ocean, I will not be prepared because cats react in a very strange way and I am not sure I can capture them, all four I mean, on time to escape from the house ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Yes, Halo is very good looking, but I have never seen an animal that loved fighting so much! Fortunately, me only fights with Gunner, but his behavior is as embarrassing as the way some humans behave! >^.^<

  2. Thanks Miss Foguth for those tips! Mom it seems is delinquent in disaster preparedness at our house. This will get her with the program! We live 2 hours from Mount St. Helens & other area volcanoes. So that is a potential risk along with fire danger & flooding. I so appreciate your post! Mew Mew!

    1. Thank you. I’ve gotten away from writing informative posts because I began to feel as if I was repeating myself. But some things need to be mentioned more than once, so I decided to periodically share previously posted information via links, so IF someone needed it, they knew where to find it.

      1. Last year, Matthew, a CAT 2, came ashore near us. I believe it had been 38 years prior to that. Fortunately, our building codes take hurricanes into account, so the only damage we had was to some of the plants. (https://purrseidon.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/matthew-update/ tells about the storm, about a week before) (https://purrseidon.wordpress.com/2016/10/09/sunday-selfies-24/ tells about it after the fact… we had planned to stay put, until Jim Cantori, weatherman, who is a dare-devil, started setting up his cameras about 3 miles from us.) We do NOT want to be anywhere that man wants to be (a.k.a. the middle of a storm.) Thus, we all took off for a couple days … poor M became the love interest for a friend’s dog…
