So, as you all know, we are getting closer to the date that the Mayans predicted....."THE END OF THE WORLD!!..I happen to live with a Mesoamerican Archaeologist, so I can tell you that when you wake up on December 22...with a epic hangover...you will feel just a little silly for believing this hype..but hey, it was a good excuse to get together with friends right?
In all seriousness though, there are many reasons to be prepared for disasters. Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Wild Fires, Hurricanes, Civil Unrest, Zombies, Alien Invasions ect....are are possibilities in your area, well maybe not so much the zombies and aliens, but who knows? The important thing is to be prepared.
As a professional pet sitter, I ask that all my clients provide me with a Disaster Plan and Disaster Kit in case there is need to evacuate their pet to safety. It provides peace of mind for the owner and me during what can be a very stressful situation if not prepared.
We all saw what happened when Hurricane Katrina hit. Many people and their pets lost their lives because they refused to leave without their beloved animals. The ASPCA and other other organizations were quick to act to help rescue those pets left behind, so before the next big disaster hits, please consider a donation to these organizations.
