SUPER HOT --> THUNDER/LIGHTNING --> RAIN --> CLOUDY
So that was the weather for the past week. It's freaking me out a bit because... isn't that the pattern before some sort of natural disaster? Like an earthquake, perhaps? Maybe...
I've been sick & it gave me time to think (and sleep). Having Yuki in my life now makes me worried if something did occur. I don't know what I would do if Yuki were to run away... or something worse. It's something I hate to think about, but if I don't take care of it now, I'll regret it later.
Yuki happens to have a duffle bag right by the door with items we use often such as: toys, grooming brushes, a few treats, toothpaste, nail file and flea/bedding spray. I need to add a few more items...
If you feel the same way as I do, here are a few ways to help you & your pet... just in case.
PET FOOD: Always keep a weeks worth of extra food on hand for each of your pet. There may not be chances of running to the pet-store to get them food. They have expiration dates, so keep checking it. I know this by experience of the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Powers went out, everyone dashed to the market & everything was SOLD OUT! It was a learning experience.
EMERGENCY KIT: Collect the following items & keep them safely in a duffle bag:
- First aid guide & kit (you can get it from your vet), Medical history, Photo of you & your pet(s), PET TAGS, Pet medication, Poop bags, Leash, Collar/Harness, Capped/Collapsable bowl, Pet food, Can-opener, Gloves, Muzzle, Plastic bags, Grooming supplies, Toys, Splinting materials, blanket, disinfectants, Paper towels.

I just added her sweater, poopy bags, dog license, muzzle & extra leash, collar and harness that we have. Still need to get a few more things.
Good luck everyone... & if you have any suggestions on this, please let me know!
