Hurricane Planning Critter Style

Since our east coast earthquake apparently wasn't exciting enough now we have an unwanted visitor - Hurricane Irene barreling towards us.  I posted some time back about how I created emergency kits for the critters with food, water, toys, treats and supplies.  I don't think we will need them for this event - at least I hope not.  I did take stock on what supplies we have on hand to ensure everyone has enough food and treats and we do have emergency water should we need it.

Luckily its still summer so if the power goes out we wouldn't have to worry about Nigel getting too cold.  Worst case - we do have the snap and heat pads we can use should we need them.  The nice thing for the critters is that they are not nearly as impacted as the humans by a power outage - while some of them do watch TV they are not sad when its off.  They can nap in the dark just as well as when the lights are on.  Fingers crossed for minimal impacts....
