So far, nothing that tragic has gone wrong in my own life, but I have had to move from my nice, safe brick house in the city to a mobile home which, as far as I can tell, is made out of cardboard and plastic.  These horrid death traps are usually gone with the wind if the wind is above 50 miles

Yes, I have tried, and it goes better than stuffing them into a carrier.it's like dropping a towel over them to catch them to go to the vet..then you tie the pillowcase. BTW - at our house, there's no way I could stuff all of them into pillowcases.I have no idea what I would do. And they would

Having actually been burned out of one house I now give wings to my paranoia. At night before going to bed and in the morning before leaving for work I walk through the house turning things off and unplugging what I can. We have LOTS of smoke detectors, including one in the garage.  And I want

My parent's house burned due to faulty electrical something. My mother remembers that the same evening, a few cats were sitting at the top of the stairs to the basement, and kept staring at something. She believed that they must have been watching some kind of a short already... From:
