It's Hurricane Season: Is your human prepared?

I took this one during the hurricane in 2004

Okay, it's time to make a list and send your human out the door for supplies. There's a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico and a couple more on the way. So, I lived through the hurricanes that blew through here in 2004 and 2005. I know to take them seriously. The weather channel is saying to have a plan.


I took this one after the hurricane in 2004.

So, here are some things to pass along to your humans. Don't stop meowing until they accomplish the list.

1. Be sure you know what to do in case of hurricane. Do you stay put and put up shutters etc. or do you evacuate? If you evacuate, are you taking the pets with you..... you betcha you are. If it's not safe for you to stay in the house, it's not safe for them.

2. If you're gonna hunker down at home, fill the bathtub with water for flushing etc. And, fill jugs of water for drinking.

3. Shopping....

I'm starting the list....you add to it in the comments section.

a list of phone numbers of all the humans who may be worried about you - don't count on the cell phone for this info! And 12 packages of Whiskas Temptations -- assorted flavors ( more if you think the evacuation will last longer than 24 hours!) signed: Bonkers Da Fat Cat. (twitter)

Oh now I like your attention to detail! Food food food! I'll add to the list:

-Plenty of Catnip for those stressful nights
-My favorite blanket to snuggle into
-Toys (since there won't be power, this will give your humans something to do... play with you endlessly)
-A good cattitude :)
