Everything seems to hit at once around here. Between Saturday morning cat ER visits and Monday evening child ER visits we had a storm that progressed into a tornado warning. While banished to our closet under the stairs, I began thinking about what we needed for our pets in a true emergency. We have a camp stove, first aid kit, and food put away and a few pet things. I came across this CATastrophe kit. While it may not be exactly what I had in mind, it includes several necessities.
• 2 bags of food
• 2 blankets
• 2 light sticks
• 2 food bowls
• 1 cat toy
• 1 three gallon bucket
• 1 first aid kit
• 12 water packs
• 1 fifty foot rope
• 6 poop bags
• 1 can opener
• 1 blood stopper
• 1 pet disaster guide
There are also dog kits and an option to add it to a customized household emergency kit. $59 at Shelf Reliance.

I don't like most candles. They are often too perfumey, flowery, or synthetic scented. This one is funny though, it is pizza scented! It would go great with the beer candle. The bad thing is that you'll have to wait a while for this delivery. They are out of stock but should be available in the fall. $5.95 at Hotwicks.
