Emergency Preparedness

a309d443c9d496c394735ec89da69641 In two days, ‘hurricane season’ officially begins. Since my philosophy is to be knowledgeable and prepared, emergency preparedness is on my mind. It seemed wise to share links to previous posts letting pet owners know what to pack, how to prepare for bad weather as well as various first aid tips.  other areas are already experiencing natural disasters like earthquakes and wild fires … of course disasters can also occur on a more personal level, but it we’re prepared, our stress is reduced and that is always a good thing.

While I hope none of you need the information in these previous posts, it’s always better to have the knowledge and not need it than vice-versa:

    1. It is very easy to forget about pets, until the last minute … I, for one, don’t like being rushed or making spur-of-the-moment decisions…. thus, I focus on being prepared for most situations.

      1. We always pray for no emergencies, too, but still have plans for what to do ‘in case’…. How many pet carriers do you have and/or how many cats actually require one? I ask this because Purr loves to go for rides and will voluntarily hop in BUT M acts like every ride is to the vet for castration…. Guess who our emergency plan designates as ‘catch first’. Yep, M. Normally, he doesn’t have much to say, but he yowls from the moment of capture until finally let out at our destination. (FYI, this was proven during our Hurricane Matthew evacuation, last year.)

      2. I have a crate for each cat. But none like traveling in the car. I have one that is extremely difficult to catch and put in a crate. I think it’s because he was hospitalized for two weeks when young and nearly died.

      3. Well, we ‘cheat’ and put bedding, toys, etc. in the crates, so everyone has their ‘private space’ … that said, M did NOT like it when the door closed and he got popped into the car. He has gotten over it, but refused to sleep in his cubby the entire time we were at our refuge.
