Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Floods. Fires.
Some natural disasters can be anticipated. Others can't, but we can prepare for them - and our emergency plans should include our pets. In the wake of large disasters in recent years, even federal, state and local emergency managers have realized the importance of providing information for pet owners and including the welfare of animals in their own plans.
Probably one thing that many pet owners don't think about with those plans are the dangers that pets are susceptible to in the hours and days immediately following the destruction from a disaster.

Both my dogs slept right through it, should I tell them about or not?
Thank-you. I will be with my cats, they may get nervous, but I will be with them.
My dog tried to warn me of the earthquake. He typed e..a...r..t..h on my keyboard before I made him get down.
Whenever we get tornado warnings here I go sit with my cat Hannah Leigh. I want to know where she is at all times in case we have to run for cover.
Odin jumped up on the windowsill and barked at it.
He was quite pleased with himself when he “scared it off”.
LOL!! Good dog, he!
Likewise my Lab. Guess I’m with you on the quandry ! >PS
Yes..he was quite..er...”helpful”....LOL
The pitiful part was that when the sofa start started shaking, I thought he was having a fit or something so just as I leaned over to touch him to make sure he was okay, he jumped up to stare me in the face to make sure *I* was okay and we both wound up getting head-bonks.
*Then* he whirled around and hit the window, barking.
When it stopped, he came back over and nose-poked me repeatedly to...uh...assess my overall general health or something?
LOL!!! Head bonk! :)
I love that dog....
You. To your room. NOW!
Yep. The economic collapse is going to be even worse. It will be like a tsunami or hurricane. Most people won’t know that they’re trapped and doomed, until they have no options for transportation. Neighbors will fight neighbors to the death over the suburban livestock. Meow! Ruff!
