Preparing Cats for Flood, Fire and Other Disasters

Seven Cats Survive Tornado

Cat Saved after Tornado

What with tornadoes, floods and fires, the news has been filled with stories of pet rescues.  In Massachusetts a “family whose home was destroyed by the tornadoes that struck the state on June 1 has found all seven of its cats alive,”  Huffington Post.   Michael Roescher says that he’s “thrilled and “shocked because he didn’t think there was any way the cats could have survived the devastation.   All were in good shape, except for bruised paws from trying to dig out.”  The family took refuge in their basement and he “says it was like being in a blender.”

Below is a short list copied from the Buda web page, for the complete list go to the Buda web page: Buda Animal Control

To have in your emergency kit:

  • At least three days of food, water, and any medications your pet may need
  • Vet / vaccination records, etc.
  • Collars /ID’s, harness and leash
  • Pictures  of yourself and other family members with your pet(s)
  • Sanitation  kit: pet litter, litter box, plastic trash bags, household chlorine bleach
  • Have a  carrier or crate ready that your pet has been adapted to for safe
    transportation purposes. The carrier should be large enough to allow your
    pet to stand, turn around, and lie down.
