Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires wreak havoc in the lives of all in their paths. While some disasters provide time to evacuate, others take victims by surprise. Prepare yourself and your cats now to give you the best possible chance for survival regardless of the type of disaster you face.

During a disaster, your cat normally is safest when you are together, but some disasters strike when you aren’t home or are unable to take your cat with you. Make sure your neighbors know how many cats you have so they can help if needed. Also keep a current rescue alert sticker (available for free from the ASPCA) on your doors. The sticker tells first responders how many and what types of pets you have in your house.
