Re: Re: [Chat] bestfriends


Wonderful to hear.
You know, I realize and fully understand many people thinking, "oh, it's
another hurricane, we can ride it out" and then getting stuck.  But even so,
why wouldn't they have a stash - like the Mormons(I think) who keep a year's
supply of stuff on hand.

The first I'd think about would be my cats.  I wouldn't want to put them
through it.  And I wouldn't go anywhere without them. (which means I need to
get another carrier or two) But I would have a stock of cat food and water
for them as well as other necessities for myself, if I were undecided about
leaving.

Bless that doctor for staying with those animals.

Kitty
