As those of us on the East Coast brace for the worst of Hurricane Sandy, it begs the question what professional pet sitters do to keep their furry clients safe and sound?

Running to the super market yesterday (as most news people instructed) for batteries, candles, food and water was a sight to see!
It was packed and crowded with many patrons in ‘fight or flight’ mode. And all the D batteries were sold out!
In any case, I feel very confident with my location and with the amenities I have should power go out. I also have a full tank of gas (again, as suggested by the pros) but aren’t sure where I’d be required to drive in a completely flooded area.
How Do You Prepare For the Worst?
Here is a short 90-second video I just shot out the front door of the apartment in Brooklyn.
Things are just starting to pick up with the worst of it slated for later tonight.
Please share in the comments below: How do you as a professional pet sitter prepare for disaster, emergency or evacuation?
What do your current clients expect and/or receive from you in such situations?
Bottom Line: Be Safe!
I hope everyone in an affected area stays safe and sound, and that all furry creatures are properly cared for!
