We had a cat named SAMMY.
Sammy did not go outside. Sammy definitely did not stay out at night.
We lived on a very a quiet street with little traffic, no predators and animal-loving neighbors.
One unfortunate night, Sammy got out when friends who were visiting left.
Around 3 am in the morning, I heard noises that didn’t sound right. I woke my husband who went outside looking for Sammy.
Two dogs belonging to a neighbor had escaped their backyard. That day, their lawn care people did not latch the gate properly.
The 2 dogs behaved in a pack-like manner. They critically injured Sammy.
We desperately searched for the nearest 24-7 emergency vet clinic to help Sammy.
Sadly, he took his last breath on our kitchen floor.
I swore that would NEVER, ever happen on my watch again.
What we did to keep this from happening in the future
We got prepared by getting to know our pets.
We did this by creating pet profiles for each of our pets. Our pet profiles are detailed and personalized with their needs, care instructions, how to keep them safe, what to do if they get lost and much more. Profiles have lots of fun stuff about our pets as well as safety tips and “did you know” fun facts.
Our pet sitters have our pet’s profile on their smart phone too. They get to know our pets as well as we do and can care for them like we do. So, when we’re away we know our pets are OK!
Pet profiles are most handy and helpful when kept on a smart phone. However, pet profiles can be accessed from a computer and tablet too. Profiles are also available in a printable PDF as well.
Our pet’s profile is always with us. If we are at work, traveling with our pets or leave them with a sitter, we are prepared!
