Only bring animals that can fend for themselves. Meaning dogs and cats for most of us. Cats can usually feed themselves, provided you put them in an
environment where they can hunt, and will usually come back to your shelter once they get the lay of the land.
Dogs, however, are the most useful companion you can bring. They make great sentries, hunting companions, morale boosters, and can eat just about
anything you feed them without too much trouble. Of course, there are some breeds of cat and dog that have been inbred into special retardation (
Dalmatians, for example. ), which probably aren't good for bringing along.
If you feel you must leave your pets, execute them yourself and give them a proper burial. This is a grim prospect, but consider the very likely
chance that they will starve, catch a disease, die of parasites, or other much less pleasant ways to die.
