19. My boss lost a cat during hurricane Frances last year
They didn't take their cats with them when they evacuated. They found one, but the other was never found. When I evacuated for Frances, I had Magic, Nightmare and Smoke. I drove with them to Texas in a VW Jetta with no A/C. It was miserable, but they did OK and there was no way I would ever leave them in such a situation.
