The biggest problem with cats is moving them back and forth from old environments to new ones and how understandably neurotic they get with it. And with a storm of this size, your dog, probably all the dogs (and cats) are going to be going nuts especially if they must be transported via human means as you evacuate. I always knew a thunderstorm was coming, even though I didn't see it, when my dog would start cowering behind the toilet. And then, in would come the storm. . .
We have a cat crate, but our dog is a golden, so a crate big enough to hold her would be too big for the car.

I just looked at that, but Palast is talking about the Hamptons, which is in suburban on Long Island, about 70 miles away from me.
I'm home from work now, and we're trying to determine whether or not we're going to heed the evacuation order. It seems like lots of people are going to stick it out. We're putting our final decision off until this evening, because if we do leave, we don't want to do it in rush hour traffic.
Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes!
