I had one little thought...these things are so complex, but I was thinking of a scenario of a family bugging out in bad conditions, with a few pets, and there was a chance of flooding.
It might help to have life vests on the adults, kids and pets too.
It gets complicated and possibly dangerous, trying to figure out how to tether the little ones, to keep from losing them, kids and pets, if anyone has an idea please post.

Cats would need to be secured in carriers, maybe those could have a flotation underneath. Dogs could have life vests...

I had to use a wrist leash on my younger son when he was a toddler, as he liked to wander off.  However, walking with ones that young is a very slow process, so it might be best to carry them if in a real hurry to get away from somewhere:

- dogs, herbivores... lead them on a leash, no problem
- rabbits, ducks, chickens, etc.:



But one should really consider hard which animals are worth the hassle. I mean... cats?
Really; you have bigger issues [and they're not even really edible].
Pigeons, bees, quail, hell, even a donkey i could get, but cats?
There is such a thing as triage... Instead of a cat, take a few guinea pigs and you could be surviving off of cuy for generations to come!

That is so neat, but beware, ducks don't just poop, they squirt due to drinking volumes of water.  :P

Maybe an open plastic bag of hay could be placed on the bottom of your pack though, and the duck placed on that?

caves

I'm not planning on moving any animals in an emergency, except maybe a dog [and he/she can walk]. I'm just thinking aloud along the lines of bad luck and emergency [i.e. emergency within the emergency that would be TEOTWAWKI].

I believe the only way to keep animals safe is to have them inside a cave already or just outside of a (good) cave, ready to be shooed inside WTSHTF.

Am aware that there is a large survival group in the States that is planning to do that too, and it does sound like a good plan.

It has to be a good cave, though. If the Alps popped up just some 12,000 years ago, chances are they will move violently next time around, too. That means all caves in the Alps are death traps.
Similarly, great chunks of earth all over the world will not be safe.
Caves that have been around for millions of years are a different story. One must do one's research. The Alps, for instance, look solid but looks can be deceiving. And 12,000 years is like a snap of the fingers geologically speaking.

How does one check ahead of time for Sasquatch?  And if a clan of them is found, does one befriend them with gifts and attempt to move "next door?"
