Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and I’m just hanging around the living room today, but I wasn’t hanging around right here yesterday. Nope, yesterday was an early day of practice and I asked Brother Simon and Sister Dolly to help me out and make sure all was as it should be. Practice is important, but you’ve got to have a plan and then practice that plan.
Of course I’m talking about having an emergency plan ready to go. It’s severe weather season here in the South and we live in an area known as Dixie Ally. We had the threat of severe weather yesterday so it was time for a refresher session. I know y’all know the drill about emergencies, things like having meds, medical history, food, water, etc. all set to go on a moments notice. But once you have an emergency plan, it’s really important to practice that plan so that all will go smoothly in case you need it.
Part of our emergency plan for severe weather is having all of our carriers ready so we can get in them and then go in our small interior bathroom with the Mom and the Dad to protect us. So, Dad got the carriers ready for inspection.
That silly Brother Simon thought it was a photo session so he brought a toy along with him so he could play. I quickly reminded him that this was serious business and that he needed to help me inspect the carriers.
We made sure to check them all and everything seemed in order and ready to go. Brother Simon gave them all a good once over.
After Brother Simon and I were finished with our inspection I asked Sister Dolly what she thought. She gave her nod of approval so we were all set. By the way, we did have to put our plan into place. We had a Tornado Warning at 9:30 PM and were put in our carriers. The all clear happened at 10:15 PM so we came out and had our evening tuna juice.
Don’t forget, have an emergency plan and practice, it’s mighty important. Oh and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
