If, however, you have to go to a shelter run by the Red Cross or some other organization, they generally will not allow animals. They say that it has to do with (a) so many people having allergies, (b) sanitation, and (c) that their limilted resources have to go to helping PEOPLE.

It sucks, I know.
Actually, there was a law passed that emergency evacuation plans had to accommodate animals; otherwise the states and local governments don't qualify for FEMA funding. The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act of 2006 was passed after the Katrina fiasco.

I just read the entire thread. I don't know how far away you are from the Lake Livingston area, Sophie, but if you need a place to stay, our doors are open. We're supposed to get hit, too, but I don't think it will be as bad as your area. We don't have a lot of extra room, but we could manage. And you can bring your furbies, too. There may be a few "hissy fights" going on b/c we have ten cats, but we could manage. Let me know what you think, and I'll PM you my phone number so we can make arrangements...

To the original OP, I'm glad to hear that you've made arrangements - including your furbies. I hope y'all well be all right!

Thank you all... I guess that the rain bands are already making landfall. I am okay with loosing what we left there. I have my hard drive out of my computer, so I wont loose stuff I care about.

Shadey stayed in the garage with 3 dogs and a cat she doesn't know. I can't find her this morning though. One big dog and the little dog were in carriers. We got in about 4am so they weren't caged too long.

Shadey's trip went well, she was in my lap for most of it. She has a soft carrier. I let her out towards the end and let her sleep in my lap where i knew she would be most comfortable. I know animals should be left in carriers on trips, but I just wanted her to know I was there.

The dogs got all bickery to each other and snappy. but...

Well i saw a picture of hat it looks like today, and hmmm.. I may be back in Wyoming before too long while things get all taken care of.

Thank you for your thoughts.

Sophie, how are you? I can't wait to hear from ya.

Be safe.

This gave me an idea of what this storm was about... WOW!!!

I am also thinking about everyone effected. This is supposed to hit A LOT of area, and effect LOTS of people.

Be safe.

Oh please take her -she will be scared by herself and may easily get lost. Remember all the lost pets after katrina! Your husband needs to know the cat is a family member!! I am shocked he would say that!

Good luck and stay safe- this does indeed look like a bad storm!

lol, she is with me in oklahoma stuck in a garage with three dogs and a cat she doesn't know. I haven't seen her since last night. I would NEVER leave her, I had trouble sleeping knowing she was in a garage without me, and with animals she is not comfortable with. I am so used to her cuddling with me, with her little arms around me, and kissing my chin. It was hard without my teddy kitty cat. She's my cuddly girl.

I'm glad you and your babies are OK, I hope everyone and their pets are safe. Seems like that storm it's going to hit a big area and they say it's a strong one. I'll be praying for all of you. God bless.
