Emergency

Are you prepared in case of an emergency for your cat such as a fire, flood, and other natural disasters?

I’m sure your cat will appreciate an evacuation plan in place so that her owner knows exactly what to do when in an emergency – take your feline friend with you!!!

Make sure of the following:

  • All your family members know where your cat’s carrier is.
  • Place a tag on your cat’s carrier with your contact information
  • Your cat is wearing a collar with your contact information.
  • If you haven’t done it yet, it is good to have your cat micro-chipped at your vet.

 

What do we need to prepare for an emergency?

  • Cat Food – at least 3 days worth of food (canned or dried)
  • Bottled Water
  • Can Opener
  • Plastic Bags for poops, etc.
  • Baby Wipes
  • Disposable Gloves
  • Blankets with your scent on it
  • Food Bowl
