An emergency doesnt need to be on a large scale to seriously impact you and your pets. In fact, the odds are higher that the average emergency will affect only you and your family. However, a problem that affects only you or other family members can have huge consequences for your cat. Good examples are an owners injury in a car accident with the cat left home alone or simply a decision to spend the night somewhere else due to dangerous driving conditions while your cat is home unattended for more than one night. Heres how to prepare for those situations.
