It'd be good to know what's good to feed them in the wild too!

Cats keep mice and other vermin away. Should a makeshift community form, they would almost be essential to have.
If the SHTF scenario happens and we need to abandon the cities, Where do you think all the rats are going to go?
right along with us. They follow the trash.
I would also like to pint out, that if we are really tanked, and need to get out of dodge and never go back, pets are a hindrance to travel with, unless the afore mentioned canines are with you.
I have 4 cats, and I love them all, but if they went tsar bomba nearby, I would leave the door open. They can survive better on their own.
I have 3 cats,who have spent their entire lives indoors.I have been
wondering what to do with them,they wouldn't survive on their own.
I have decided to take a chance and will take them along.I just bought
a bag for them,my version of a B.O.B. for cats.
I am packing the following...
1.Stainless steel bowls for food and water
2.Litter pans and scoop (2 pans and 1 stainless steel scoop)
3.Blankies and towels
4.A couple of toys
5.Hair brushes and combs
6.Packets of cat food
8.Carriers(won't fit into bags)
9.Litter(won't fit into bags)
10.Water,I saved some of the jugs their litter came in to use for this
11.Flea and tick shampoo
12.Neosporin cream for cuts,not the ointment
13.Stridex,alcohol free&sensitive skin,for feline acne

Dog's get to eat all the squirrels, rabbits and other such animals as they can catch.
Cat get's all the mice and birds she can get her paws on.
Hell, this is essentially their diet now.
In the heat of disaster all too often the other members of our families, our pets, are often left behind or forgotten about. In addition to survival supplies for your family, our pet's supplies should be kept up to date and easily accessible. Your pets count on you for protection and safety don’t forget about them!
