Please be safe! If you are being evacuated, never leave your cat behind. There is no way of knowing what may happen to your home while you are away, and you may not be able to return for days or even weeks. Never assume that you will be able to return home soon, despite any assurances to the contrary. Animal companions left behind may become malnourished, dehydrated, or crushed by collapsing walls. They may drown or escape in panic and become lost.
Not all emergency shelters accept animals, but many hotels takes animals. Keep a list of hotels that always accept companion animals just in case (most Motel 6s accept animals), and be ready to cajole and beg hotels to make exceptions (most loosen ‘no pet’ policies during disasters, thankfully). Offer a “pet deposit” if you can afford it. Include your local animal shelter’s number in your list of emergency numbers—it might be able to provide information during a disaster. Consider including a list of hotels in your disaster kit.
yes, definitely don’t leave muchie behind! (lol thats a really cute name) your cat might get frightened and run away if a window or something breaks, and if you have to go to the school its def not safe for you to stay home. Also if something happens to your house and you left your cat there…uh oh…
thheres absoloutly no animals????? Omg terrible!!! I hope you don’t have to, maybe if you left the city and went to stay with relatives/friends who would allow you to take your pet? Or even if you just give your cat to your friends and you go to the highschool…good luvk, your in my thoughts 🙂
