Default Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh!!!!!! I can't believe what I'm reading. When Hurricane Ivan was coming we packed up are 7 cats (indoor) and 5 yorkies, we took them all. I had just finished my cemo treatment a week prior to Hurricane Ivan and was unable to help get anything ready except for getting my kids out with us (I was still in a wheel chair). We came back the next day to fine everything gone Ivan decided he wanted everything and it looked like a war zone. Our neighbor up the street still had his house he let us stay with all our animals (no water/electric/etc... Couple days later when our family arrived we put up tents on our property, one for the cats, one for the dogs and one for us and my 2 brother inlaws sleeped in their truck. The situtation was very bad no clean water, food, etc.. until family arrived to help (no fema/police/no anybody). But by the time our family got to us that day I lost one yorkie that night I lost another in my arms, and against all odds I should not be here today either. We could not get to a vet (for our yorkies) or to the hospital for me (my nurse came on the 4th day with supplies for me). I would never leave my love ones behind. When your in danger/sick to death you'd be surprise what you can and should do for your loved ones.

I dont think I could handle severe crisis and having to deal with him as well. but I will have to see...i would never turn him loose to die on the streets. a cat can survive, a yorkie? no way...

We had a dog and she has her own BOB and her medicine is in the families case (a big tackle box with everything that you could want from three first aid kits then some) I have no intention of every leaving her behind.
I also watch my neighbors dog while she is away, and if the SHTF I would take her dog too, partly because its a good dog and partly because. . . well. . . protein is protein.

We have 2 declawed cats and a dog. They all come. They are all indoor pets and are family. Just having them for the calming factor that they provide us pays their way. Plus the dog barks at ANY noise that doesn't belong. Cars or people on foot (mainly hunters) barely get into the yard and he's barking bloody murder.

I couldn't vote accurately since we have some that would come and some that would stay. We only have so much room in the two trailers for hauling the "large furry animals". We could manage 3 horses, 2 donkeys, all 11 goats, all 30 chickens, and all 7 dogs. Left behind would be 2 horses, 1 donkey, 1 mule, and 5 barn cats. If the situation allowed we would come back for the rest.

I have a dog, cats, a cow, and chickens. The last two unfortunately will be on there own if we are required to shelter down. The dog and cats will be a comforting addition to any shelter, and they are in mind when planning food storage, they have there own food supply and litter essentials. Worse case scenario, I also keep a how to WOK your dogs and cats recipe book on hand.
