    Pets?

    I have two indoor cats and have always wondered when things go bad and I need to leave what should I do with them? When I mean leave I mean as in I may not be back for months, years, maybe ever. I thought the best thing would be to set them free and hope their animal instincts take over and they can survive.

    If I had cats that's what I would do. Turn them loose. The dogs have to eat too.

    We have four furry kids and have prepared for them as best as we can. We have supplies stored for them here and at our secondary location. They are indoor cats as well, so the goal is to keep them with us as long as it is feasible, sharing our food with them if need be. If things go on for long enough, we'll see if they're as good at hunting as they think they are.

    Cats have a job . Rodent control and they do a fine job of it. The Dog, keeps the Cats on their toes and does guard duty. The Bird and fish back up cat food.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

    Provided they're not declawed I'd set them free and trust their odds of survival are better than yours.

    Plan to take the cats with you. I'm not a cat person, but I have two dogs, No way, I'd ever consider leaving them behind.

    Don't tell these people about your cats man! There are some on this board that consider skewered feline a delicacy.

    Well, duh. It goes without saying that the DOGS will go with the humans. They are very useful. They even kill and eat mice or rats!
    The only thing a cat is good for is oven mitts.

    Another example of Obama changing of America. Someone wanting something for doing nothing.
