Some of us are “dog people” and some of us are “cat people.” I myself happen to be both. I hate the idea of my pets getting hurt or starving during a disaster, so I put together a pet survival kit.
However, doing this is not for everyone. Although there are pros to having a pet during a disaster (particularly dogs), there are also several cons. You need to decided for yourself whether having a pet is worth the cost.
Geek Prepper recently wrote a post listing all the pros and cons of having a pet during a disaster, along with a short list of pet prepping supplies.
