I’m thinking of everyone in Hurricane Isaac territory. And, by everyone, I also mean your pets. Remember to get their ID tags ready, and to have an emergency kit that includes some food, water, and any required medication. Take it from Maru, who is always (and fashionably) prepared for natural disasters.
According to Florida’s Treasure Coast Palm newspaper:
If You Go, They Go! Disaster Planning for Pet Owners: This brochure covers topics including pet identification, determining whether you and your pets live in a surge zone, pet supplies needed if you must evacuate with your animals and how to create a pet first-aid kit. The information is also available at www.hsvb.org/emergency.asp.
Stay well, animals: human and otherwise!
