Thankful Thursday: Under the Bed Command Center is Now Closed


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Are you prepared for an emergency? We like to thing that we are, but you never know until you need to do it.  We had the first alerts for severe weather and potential tornados all throughout the South this week.  Those things are always scary and we really worry about our friends when the scary stuff heads their way too.

We had our weather radios on, our weather apps on our smartphones active, our carriers ready in case we need to be protected in a hurry, and the dust bunnies on high alert in the Command Center. Fortunately, all is okay in our little neck of the woods, and that’s the way I like it. We know some of our pals were in the path of the storms and we hope to hear that all of you are okay too.  Even our dust bunnies were breathing a sigh of relief.

So today, we are very thankful that the storms have come and gone, but we will remain ever vigilant and keep our eyes on the sky.  Our Command Center that we set up under the bed is now closed.  Do y’all have emergency prep plans too???

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

It must be very, very frightening to deal with that kind of severe weather. We are glad that things have now calmed down.

WE are so very thankful that the storms missed us but sorry they hit some other places really hard.

Being that our mom is a tornado survivor, you can bet she has a plan! She’s pretty much a wreck all through tornado season for those in the paths of those evil tornadoes. Fortunately Chicago doesn’t get storms like the south does. Stay safe friends!

So glad to see Scuttles is having donations come in

Mom grabs me and shoves me in my PTU and grabs Dakota and goes to the basement of our condo/apt bldg. Dad never takes the warnings seriously so we leave him upstairs…Mom tells him if the roof blows up he will have to deal with it. MOL.

Pat just has to grab us and throw us in the cage and away we go, but he has to catch us first lol all we get is hurricanes and snow, so we are pretty safe.

Glad everything is quiet now. We think of you when we hear the scary weather reports. xxoo

We alwasy feel bad for the animals who have to go through vishus weather. Of course, our mom doesn’t have a full plan! But of course she should, but part of the reason is depending on the emergency it might need to be altered. The hardest part would be catching us.

We are so grateful that the storms passed you by. Our friends in Alabama weren’t so fortunate. Truly is a Thankful Thursday Brian!

We’re really glad you’re okay, Brian.

We have a cart in our garage filled with necessities for a few days (which the human has to go through and check/update), but without a vehicle and without family in the region, if we had to evacuate we’d be up a creek with no paddle, as the expression goes.

It is almost time for us to start our hurricane season preparations, Brian. We will need to organize the Command Center as I am sure it is in disarray since we left it last year. Everybody should have a Command Center…the weather has been so crazy! You just never know what is going to hit where anymore.

Glad you all are okay. I’m sure you kitties don’t mind being under the bed too much. Seems like cats like it under there.

Glad those storms passed you by and you all are safe. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by them.

We sure are glad that things are OK in your neck of the woods for now. It’s been some wild weather all over. Still purring for Scuttles.

We are glad you are all OK! We have a ‘mergency spot unner the stairs. It is surrounded by the stairs, heavy plywood panels, and a cinder block wall with the concrete stair outside of that.

Oh yes, especially since we live in that Tornado Alley. Mom always has our leashes ready to put on so she can get us all in the basement. We have a nice big closet down there where we can all fit. It surely is a very scary time of the year for so many, and sadly so many have suffered. We hope the rest of this troublesome season is better.

Pee Ess, we don’t think the Under the Bed Command Center would work for us:)

Scary weather stuff is just that….scary! I’m so glad your nasty weather has passed by without any harm. We are in an earthquake zone and the BIG one is supposed to hit sometime. We have done what we can, but….

Yes, Mr. Brian, we have emergency plans and necessary supplies stored away. But, just in case we keep our Under the Bed Command Center available incase we need to reactivate it. We also have a secondary location behind the toilet.
Hugs you guys!
