So far I like your ideas. I do need more pet carriers indeed.
Also, another option, (one of my friends suggested) would be for me to get a long rope with a carabiner, like they use for mountain climbing, attached at one end, this way I can rig the pet carriers together by their handles and lower them as slowly and gently as possible, down from my front or back patio... surely it would be kinda rough ride for the cats, but they would be safely evacuated.
I am surprised no one ever came up with an invention of some sort for this kind of situation...
