I know! I would never leave Zissou behind unless I was unconscious and they dragged me out, and even then the first thing I would say when I woke up is "Where's my cat?!?!?" It's unfair to expect that you could be in, say, the astrodome(?) with your pet just running loose, but there should have been SOME thing done for them and not just no pets anywhere at all.
Then again, in this most recent prominent disaster, there wasn't much thought about human life either.
Anytime there's a tornado watch here, I get out Zissou's carrier and get ready to put her in it and take her downstairs with me. There's even a towel kept with it to throw over her because the safest spot in a tornado has glass windows.
