  1. Do you have a pet disaster plan in place?  We all went through this exercise shortly after 9/11/01, but the kits we prepared got misplaced, outdated, etc.  With all the incidents this week, the one in West, TX, hitting me so close to home, I thought I'd bring this back to the surface.

Last year a tornado levelled a neighborhood just a couple miles southwest of my house.  In the aftermath, I took my 100% indoor cat to the vet and had him microchipped.  We can never be too prepared.

I'm glad you did that,,, such a relief to know there's a chance to have your pets returned in case of an emergency.

that must have been so scary,,,,

I really have no plan for an emergency.... better think on that one....  coffee is chipped  and also wears the dog tag (we pay a yearly tax on pets here, not sure if you do there) and so they each have a number which can be tracked too.
