Those are some good points, Barkingdog. Thankfully, I think a lot of shelters are getting better about allowing pets.

Our biggest threat here is forest fire. In case of fire we pack the following 6 Ps into the cars and bug out to farm country:

1. Pets (or Pack, as is the case here)
2. Provisions (food for the pets, mostly )
3. Prescriptions (yep, mostly for the Pack, too )
4. Pictures (nothing more precious than memories)
5. Papers (legal documents--most importantly, insurance documents)
6. Plastic (as in credit cards)

After that, we're sorta on our own, though, unless someone opens a shelter that allows lots of pets. At least fire season usually means warmer weather and if we have to, we can find a campground till things settle back down...
