if it was truly a survival situation, you'd do what you could for your pets. Then eat them when you're out of food, sorry I love my dogs and cats but if I'm gonna die of starvation, so are they, might as well make is painless for them and chow down before they die horribly. I don't see us having the luxury to take care of pets.

there would be no way i would go through an 'end of the world' crisis without my dog... she is like my daughter, and my shadow... when all the rest of the rotten world didn't want to show up over the past 8 years because i had 'nothing good to offer them', she was there, how could i not be the same?

no question, plus she'd eat a bullet for me, and put out a fire for me... like for real, if i light a lighter in front of her she will smack it with her paw, of course i don't let it set her on fire, but it's fun to watch, like watching her try to eat through my windshield to get the wipers, or better, when she sees a weather reporter on tv with their wipers on and tries to attack them via cable tv

I know that regardless of what happens, my little chihuahua will be fine. It would make it a lot harder for me if she wasn't around.

Yeah, I have an English Mastiff and I think he would be good for the intimidation factor. Although that's only his size, he's the biggest baby! I couldn't imagine eating him though.

Are you guys serious? In a real survival scenario, an animal would be another tool. Use the tool while you can, dispose of it when the upkeep outweighs it's utility. That being said, I have a Sheppard/Lab mix that would be accompanying me in any such situation. There are few I trust more to watch my back, and we already hunt together.

I would think the bigger dogs would be a good tool, If, like myself, you live in a rural area, they will hunt when hungry, killing animals that you could also eat, as well as being used for protection. I know mine always know someone is around before I do.

That is my point. They are a useful survival tool. Smaller dogs and cats though? Snakes? Fish? Let's take a moment to focus on what a survival situation really means.

Like I said, I would try to keep them alive, but when food ran out I would have to choose between letting them die a horrible death or putting them down with a bullet, neither of them are good options, but the choice will have to be made if things get bad enough.

Actually...I am pretty sure you will not have to worry too long about pets. I am sure that if people are starving enough...then pets will start to disappear...sadly

I don't know how I will go on without my loyal mastiff boy. I already dread the day when his time comes, I know I will be in pieces.

He's been my friend from the second he was born. We have an incredible, unbreakable bond and life without him by my side is unthinkable for me. He is irreplacable.

People who don't have a dog don't know what they are missing.

Never mind what I will do in a crisis, I don't know what I'll do without my boy

I have cats and ferrets and would keep all of them. They can all serve a purpose. Cats help control the rodent population and ferrets are hunters. They would earn their keep but I would still take care of and love them like I do now. People need to remember that until recently, all animals were work animals and all served toward making our lives better.

I have a koi pond.
Your suggestions are?...

Sometimes, in a time of extreme stress, a thing of beauty and tranquility even for a few minutes, can be more valuable than gold. Koi are good for the soul. Assuming that you're staying put. Or maybe a food source, if you are desperate. They can always be used to feed your other pets.

A nice squeeze of lemon.

My dog is my first line of defense, and he is one scary dude. My cat is the best mouser I've ever had, another important skill in an emergency scenario. Of course I provide for them, but in an emergency, they have to pull their weight, too.

I always try to stay a bag ahead on pet food. I have 1 cat and 1 dog. If I had to make a "Sophies Choice" on them, I would leave the cat on his own. But I also think my cat would fare better on his own than my dog would.
I would bring my dog with me at all costs - for comfort, warmth, companionship , and for safety. Being female, I would just feel better to have "someone" else as a companion in a survival situation.
