BQ: My second cold of the autumn (fall to you) has just started. Since January 1st I've had four or five colds. I don't know why this year has been so bad for colds - maybe I should shelter from those storms. I like them though..
Go to the vet were they were seen and get a health guarantee (I have to do this when I ship my kittens nation wide or world wide). No airline will accept them without this health guarantee. They are trying to prevent sick cats from infecting any other pets traveling on the plane, which is only fair. Europe, from what I've seen is more picky than the states about immunizations and require more than we do. If you've given the shots yourself you may be out of luck because the health guarantee vets sign is a legally binding contract and most won't sign off on shots that they didn't verify themselves (I know my vet won't!). Unfortunately it isn't cheap to ship a cat internationally...and if you have invested that much time, money and effort into the kittens they why not provide them a good home yourself? If you put them into a shelter there is a good chance one or two of them will be euthanized before they find a home! But, if you can't then search for a no-kill shelter (humane society) or post in the local paper, or craig's list. Call an airline and ask them about their requirments and they will give you all the details. Then contact your vet. Good luck!!
Would an animal shelter take treats that have been opened?
why dont you call them and ask? theyll be opened soon once its not christmas/weekend... they might, but they won't think much of it (if they take it at all), maybe just give you a friendly thanks.
buttt you might make some kittens happy : P
Where can I take shelter from a Tornado in Georgetown Tx?
Go to whichever one is closer or that you think you'll feel safer in! The hospital sounds like the better option. Go quick the storm is on you.
For all those in the way of the huge storm, Marble Falls, Georgetown, Leander, Cedar Park, Austin...etc...Stay safe tonight, take precautions, and be prepared for the worst. I'll be praying. God Bless.
During WWII, did the Germans take shelter in the homes of Polish women, did the women kill the germans sometim?
Unfortunately, these things happen in wartime in every country and by any army. German soldiers raped women in all countries they invaded and occupied, So did Russians, Americans, and soldiers of all countries on all sides. And yes, sometimes the victims react and fight back.
How do I catch a stray cat that adopted me? Want to take it to animal shelter for adoption!?
poor cat your probably its only hope, and the only one its starting to trust, if it doesn't get tamed they will just put it to sleep its not adoptable if its wild , but if you really feel you need to get rid of it you can get a trap from the animal shelter to catch it.
Where in my basement should I take shelter if there's a tornado?
Tornados rarely collapse basements so you need to watch items that can fall on your head.
Stay under a heavy beam that can support any falling debris. The south wall is fine as long as nothing heavy is on the floor above it. Imagine the floor falling in and what would be on it. Stay in the areas that are clear and cover yourself. The best is keeping a metal bathtub in your basement that you can turn upside down and get under. These are very safe.
Is a highway overpass a good place to take shelter from a tornado.?
Absolutely not! Stopping under a bridge to take shelter from a tornado is a very dangerous idea, for several reasons:
1. Deadly flying debris can still be blasted into the spaces between bridge and grade -- and impaled in any people hiding there.
2. Even when strongly gripping the girders (if they exist), people may be blown loose, out from under the bridge and into the open -- possibly well up into the tornado itself. Chances for survival are not good if that happens.
3. The bridge itself may fail, peeling apart and creating large flying objects, or even collapsing down onto people underneath. The structural integrity of many bridges in tornado winds is unknown -- even for those which may look sturdy.
4. Whether or not the tornado hits, parking on traffic lanes is illegal and dangerous to yourself and others. It creates a potentially deadly hazard for others, who may plow into your vehicle at full highway speeds in the rain, hail, and/or dust. Also, it can trap people in the storm's path against their will, or block emergency vehicles from saving lives.
The people in that infamous video were extremely fortunate not to have been hurt or killed. They were actually not inside the tornado vortex itself, but instead in a surface inflow jet -- a small belt of intense wind flowing into the base of the tornado a few dozen yards to their south. Even then, flying debris could have caused serious injury or death. More recently, on 3 May 1999, two people were killed and several others injured outdoors in Newcastle and Moore OK, when a violent tornado blew them out from under bridges on I-44 and I-35. Another person was killed that night in his truck, which was parked under a bridge.
Where is the best place to take shelter in a tornado warning?
No, do not take shelter in either one of your bathrooms considering that they are connected to an outside wall. This is among the worst places you could be. Your hallway would be the best place because it is in the middle of the house, far away from any windows or outer walls. If you have a closet in the hallway, it can also be a good room to go to. Take blankets, pillows or a small enough mattress to cover yourself while you take shelter.
