Q. how do I prepare my 3 cats and myself for disasters and emergencies?

Answered By

A. The best ways to plan for emergencies are to have your animals up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and have secure carriers in your house so that in the event of an emergency, you are prepared to move your animals. We can never know when or how an emergency will strike, so making sure that our animals are best equipped be ready to go with us, or be returned to us is a sure fire way to make sure that a happy ending is always in sight!
