Traveling Companions

The Cat Fanciers Association has a primer on disaster preparedness, with emphasis on planning for what to do with your cat (or dog) if you are forced to evacuate... or even if you are just battening down the hatches and riding the storm out.

On another note, please bear in mind that many elderly folks refuse to evacuate their homes because they refuse to leave their pets. If you have an elderly neighbor who has a pet and you live in an area prone to hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or the like, please reach out and help him or her put together a plan for the future, or to get out of harms way today. You just might save more than one life this way!
