Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Party Marty back on the scene, the cool cat who avoids the cold elements! I don’t know about all of you, but this cold weather is for the birds! Hate it! Would rather be on a warm beach somewhere. However, because I live in the Midwest, I have to suffer the elements along with everyone else around here.
If you have pets, perhaps you can benefit from this quick checklist of pet supplies to have on hand in the event you get snowed in one day and cannot get out. I am confident you make sure to have all of the necessities you need in such an event, but don’t forget about your lovable pets!
You should have at least the following on hand if Old Man Winter decides you are locked in for a day or two:
- Pet food
- Fresh water supply
- Soft warm bedding
- Any medications your pet may need on a regular basis
Now, throw in a couple of DVDs, some treats, a warm blanket, and I’m good to go….or stay in, if you will!
Also, do not leave your pet outdoors for an extended period of time in freezing temperatures. Just like humans, they can suffer from hypothermia and frostbite and….oh, crud! Where’s Jessie? That dang dog…where the heck is she? (Marty looks towards the front door) Uh….I’ll be right back. Do as I say, not as I do! (Yelling towards the door) I’m coming, Jessie!
