I'm ready! Why not take a couple hours to prepare and rest assured that you're ready for an emergency situation? And as Mom always said, *If'n you're ready, probly ain't gonna happen*.

Great information. Every time I read one of these, I get an emergency kit a little more pulled together. I have all the carriers stacked in the garage and ready to go. I copied the list, I just need to finish it off and I'll be done.

Always a good idea to be ready just in case. Having lived through the 1998 Ice Storm without power in January for 13 days and two provinces with many cities, towns and villages blacked out and covered in heavy ice, being prepared certainly makes life easier. The army brought us water and we lived on a small hobby farm but had a wood stove to keep warm. I couldn't drive to work because of the ice, but that gave the pets more time with me (the farm was hobby, not a working farm).

If there is a fire or other troubles, flooding in the home from outside or an appliance, things worked out in advance, good planning makes things run more smoothly for you and the pets that own you. Cats especially dislike a change in their regular routines.

All good things to know. ---But---remember if YOU panic, your pet(s) will probably panic also.
