I just lost my best friend/companion "Chris" just a mo ago;( He was a 8 1/2 yr old long coat Chiuahuah, and one sunday, I put him out in the kenel for 2 hrs along with our ****z zu "Gizmo" to get air. He seemd fine! Just a little reluctant to go in the kennel, but with a lil coaxing, he went in. 2 hrs later I went out to get them, and there he layed, dead;( He was just at vet not a mo prior for exam and his rabies shot..all was fine. A long time owner of dogs, I have no clue as to what what wrong. The other dog shows no signs at all of being sick, so I ruled out anything contageous. I miss my companion/friend dearly... and sometimes weigh heavily with guilt, wondering if I could have done something had I not put him outside that day. I didn't have an autopsy done..maybe I should of..I don't know. But it has made me rethink more on the care of "Gizzy" during a pandemic..what I will need for her ect...I thought i'd put a 6x6 ft kennel we used for camping down in the basement for her...and would change paper on the floor as needed, so she wouldnt have to go outside. And have stockpiled 3-20 lb bags of food, treats ect as well.Anyone else have any other suggestions here?

One thing I am going to do for our pets is first, they all come in.  I am collecting newspapers for one - for the dogs to go on, and also I will use shredded newspapers in place of kitty litter.   I have some kitty litter but not enough $ to stock up on it. 
 
Here's my idea of a dog/cat area outside.   I have a pool outside our back door with a high fence.  I bought bird netting to cover the top and all sides.   The main reason is I have one cat who loves to explore and brings back presents of small animals every time he goes out.    I put in the net to try and keep him contained somewhat.  It won't be easy, we'll still have to watch him carefully.   The area is mostly concrete.  It can be cleaned/hosed down and there is a small garden patch the pets can roll around in.   This is an area that is not easily visible, and will also be a place we do any cooking outside.

I'm not overly concerned about my dog getting infected. To be on the safe side, I think I will use a diluted bleach solution on her paws after being outside if BF is found in the states. If I had a cat, I would be worried about it catching an infected bird and eating it. For me, it is more the H2H2H virus I am afraid of, in which case I do not believe domestic animals will be a factor - it will be people I will fear.

In case of evacuation:
On the outside of the container list:
your pet's name
your name and address and telephone number
and out of state emergency telephone number
 
For each pet have your carrier already stocked with:
a collar
a leash
a current shot record.
1 gallon jug of water
blanket to lay on
toy
canned food
manual can opener
Separate Food and Water bowl
any special medications

For me one of the best way to do it is to take them always in veterinarian and love them.
