Evacuation Plans for Your Cat
Putting together an evacuation plan ahead of an actual evacuation can help save time and stress. If you’re a new cat owner you may not realize that you need to make some additional evacuation plans for your cat. For instance, make sure designated shelters for your area allow cats. If not, find a place that you can send your cat while you stay at the shelter or find a shelter that does allow cats. If you plan to evacuate to a hotel, call ahead and make sure cats are welcome. Some hotel chains will lift the ‘no pet’ policy for special circumstances. In addition, prepare your cat a ‘Go’ bag with extra food, water, bowls, leashes, harnesses, blankets, toys, and grooming supplies. Make sure you have cat carrier available for your cat to use. Also ask your pet clinic Burlington ON for a copy of your cat’s medical records.
