    SHTF essentials: What to pack in a pet preparedness kit

    Wednesday, December 07, 2022 by: Zoey Sky
    200VIEWS




    (Natural News) According to data, at least 70 percent of American households have pets. Many of these pets are also treated like family so if you’re a prepper, it makes sense to pack a pet preparedness kit or bug-out bag for your four-legged best friend.
    Before SHTF, make sure your cat, dog or other pet has supplies in their own preparedness kit. (h/t to PreparednessAdvice.com)
    Below are some items you may want to include in a pet emergency kit:
    Pet food for at least two weeks, dog bowls

    You need at least two weeks’ worth of pet food so you have enough to feed your dog if you are dealing with a long-term SHTF scenario.
    Buy folding bowls that are easy to pack. Remember that your dog also needs water to drink.
    Leash, harness, carrier and transport case

    You don’t want to lose your pet in the panic after SHTF so make sure you have a leash, harness, carrier and transport case for your dog or cat.
    Dog shoes/paw protectors, warm clothes

    If you live in a state that gets cold, get warm clothes and dog shoes or paw protectors for your pet. This will help protect them from harsh weather conditions or rough terrain.
    Extra pet medications

    An old dog or a pet with health issues will need at least two weeks to a month’s worth of extra medications. If you’re packing for a trip or an emergency, let your vet know so they can help you stock up on pet meds.
    Your pet’s tag or collar should also include notes on what medications they’re on. If you can’t get extra medications for your pets, make a list of vets nearby so you can go to them if you need more after SHTF. (Related: Do you have a first aid kit for your pets?)
    Pet first aid kit

    Did you know that you can save your dog with pet CPR? Before disaster strikes, learn how to do pet CPR properly.
    You also have to prepare a pet first aid kit with items you need to provide emergency medical aid for your pet if there’s an accident. The kit will include similar items in a first aid kit for humans, like antiseptic cream and bandages for treating wounds.
    But your pet first aid kit should also come with additional items that are pet-specific, such as:


    • Anti-worm medications


    • Flea and tick control items
    • Flea combs and tick tweezers
    • No chew bandage

    Pet bed, toys and blankets

    Like humans, pets will need comfort during a stressful disaster scenario. If you are bugging out to a safe location, bring their bed, toys and blankets so they can feel at home.
    Pack some of their old toys and items so you don’t take away their current toys.
    Poop bags or kitty litter

    When SHTF, you still need to keep things clean and sanitary to prevent sickness among your family and pets. Bring poop bags and kitty litter for pets so your campsite stays clean.
    Recent printed pet photos

    If things get too chaotic, you might lose your pet when SHTF. This is why you need recently printed pet photos so it’s easier to look for them and ask people if anyone has seen them in the area.
    The printed photos of your pet should also include any identifying marks, like unusual fur coloration or scars.
    Copies of pet medical records

    If you need to temporarily leave your pet at a shelter, you will need updated copies of your pet’s medical records.
    Copy of feeding schedules and any behavioral issues

    If you have to ask a family member or friend to keep an eye on your pet for a couple of days, give them a printed, detailed care schedule and notes to help them take care of your pet.
    Pet microchip information

    Microchip information is important and there are a lot of databases out there. Check who your animal is registered with and if your pet doesn’t have a microchip yet, get them one before SHTF so you can find them easily.
    Print out the microchip information and put a tag on your pet’s collar saying they’re microchipped.
    Regular vet/emergency vet contact information

    Get the contact information of your regular vet and an emergency vet.
    If your pet gets injured, friends, family members or boarding shelters can quickly check who to contact. Make sure emergency contacts also know that they’re your emergency contacts so they can expect a call if something happens.
    List of other emergency contact numbers

    If something happens to you, your pet documents should also include a list of family, friends, shelters and boarding centers that could take your pet in an emergency.
    You also need an updated list of shelters that take pets so you don’t waste time calling around.

    (Natural News) Familiarizing yourself with home gardening basics means improving your skill set so you can eventually start crops that are beyond those that beginners are planting.
    If you’re not sure where to start, try learning how to start tomatoes from seed.
    Starting tomato plants from seed offers several benefits. First, it gives you an early start to enable a longer harvest. It can also help prevent diseases, which means you make the most of your plants in the garden.
    Knowing how to start tomatoes from seed can help you save on groceries, especially since prices are steadily increasing store prices. If you know how to start tomatoes from seed, you no longer have to spend money on garden shop tomato plants. (Related: Home gardening 101: 5 Secrets for growing great tomatoes.)
    Get the right seeds

    The most important step is to get the right seeds for starting.
    Ideally, you should have a steady supply of tomato seeds from previous harvests. If you are new to seed starting, try new varieties.
    Here are some options to consider:
    Tomatoes that are beginner-friendly
    If this is your first time growing tomatoes, you may want to grow a variety that’s large, delicious and produces a large harvest.


    • Beefsteak
    • Celebrity
    • Italian Heirloom
    • Primo Red

    Tomatoes for fresh eating
    Cherry tomatoes are an ideal choice if you like eating fresh tomatoes. They can also be used to make sauces with a hint of sweetness.


    • Amethyst Cream
    • Sakura
    • Sungold
    • Sunsugar
    • Super Sweet 100
    • Sweet Million
    • Yellow Pear

    Low-acid or yellow tomatoes
    If you do not eat raw tomatoes, you should consider low-acid or yellow tomatoes.
    For example, Lemon Boy tomatoes grow quite large. They also ripen early and are great for tomato sauce.
    Amana Orange grows larger than Lemon Boy tomatoes. As an heirloom variety, you can save Amana Orange seeds to plant by next spring.


    • Amana Orange
    • Lemon Boy
    • Oxheart Yellow
    • Yellow Pear

    Sweet tomatoes
    Sweet tomatoes are perfect if your priority is taste.
    Some large varieties are also rather sweet, such as:


    • Brandywine
    • Costoluto Fiorentino
    • Ferris Wheel
    • Mortgage Lifter
    • Sicilian Saucer

    Tomatoes for sauces
    If your family loves pasta, choose tomatoes that are suited for pasta sauces like:


    • Amish Paste
    • Roma
    • San Marzano
    • Supremo

    Sunrise Sauce is an orange, low-acid paste tomato. It is very productive and has a long shelf life. You can store it on your counter from September to November without it going bad.
    Oxheart tomatoes are also great for sauces and they grow very big. These barely have any seeds and are so satisfying to grow for pasta sauces.
    Start early and use peat pellets

    If you want to try paste tomatoes, experiment with San Marzano Gigante. Note that if you are in an area with a shorter season, you may experience some drawbacks.
    The days to harvest San Marzano varieties is 90. If you consider the frost-free days in your area you might have trouble growing them.
    But if you have a microclimate with temperatures that are at least 20 degrees warmer, you might be able to grow San Marzano tomatoes.
    To start, calculate 90 days from the normal transplanting date of June. You will end up with Sept. 1, meaning you don’t have a lot of time to bring in a crop.
    If this is an issue, choose a smaller San Marzano variety that matures at least two to three weeks sooner.
    If you want bigger San Marzano tomatoes, you can try extending the harvest by starting your seeds early. This means starting tomato seeds six to eight weeks before you transplant them into your garden.
    Based on the calculated dates, you should start the seeds from April 1 to 15.
    For large, leafy plants with well-developed roots, you should start the tomato seeds as early as Feb. 1 to 15.
    To start tomato seeds, use peat pellets. These pellets hold the right amount of water, which can ensure that your starters do well.
    If you don’t have peat pellets or a special seed starting mix from the garden shop, you can stick with sterilized soil from your garden. Always pasteurize pots before planting to avoid introducing diseases to plants that are already established in your home garden.
    Start more seeds than you need

    Before finalizing how many seeds you want to start, add some extras if you want to give away plants to family and friends or if you plan to sell them for extra money.
    Remember that tomatoes germinate best at temperatures of 70 to 80 F, which is warmer than most people keep their homes in winter. If you’re worried, check which areas of your house have a warm spot for starting seeds.
    Gardeners often keep germinating seeds in warm areas like the top of the refrigerator. If this isn’t applicable to you, keep your starter seeds on the mantle above a wood stove insert if you have one.
    If you can’t find a warm place for germinating seeds indoors, you may need a heat mat for seedlings.
    Take notes so you don’t miss the timing for your seeds. The first set of leaves usually emerges after seven to 10 days.
    True leaves will start developing several days later. By then, the seedlings will need to be placed under grow lights or in a very sunny window in your home.
    If your windows don’t get enough sun in the winter for growing, use LED grow lights.
    Try to keep the plants about two inches under the lights for maximum light coverage and some heat from the lights. Keep the lights on for 12 to 16 hours daily and water as needed.
    Transplanting seeds

    When the plants grow two sets of true leaves, transplant them into a larger container. You can use milk cartons or washed pint-sized sour cream containers for the first transplanting. Get quart-sized yogurt containers for the second transplanting.
    Try not to touch the main stem of tomato seedlings since they have juicy tissues that are easily bruised. Bruises in the stems will act as entry points for fungi that cause seedlings to rot.
    The main stem can also be damaged if a seedling falls over, which can happen if you have a weak-stemmed tomato seedling that develops into a top-heavy seedling with new leaves. Prevent this by sprinkling additional seed starting mix around the base of leggy seedlings, then press it in.
    Add support for the seedlings until you can repot them by propping up leaners with toothpicks or a wooden skewer.
    When transplanting, try to use taller containers instead of wider ones so you can send the roots deep. Whenever you transplant, add a shallow layer of soil on the bottom to cushion the roots.
    For the first transplanting, remove the first leaves (cotyledons) carefully. Do not strip the leaf down the stem and avoid taking some of the stem with it.
    Tomatoes are unique because their stems have little hairs emanating from the stem that can develop into roots.
    Set the tomato seedling on top of the thin layer of soil and carefully fill the soil around it. Water seedlings well and fertilize lightly weekly. You can repeat this step several times before the tomatoes are eventually planted in your garden.
    Your tomatoes should also be hardened against strong winds. Like all plants, tomatoes need the wind to develop strong stalks. You can do this by gently brushing your hand over the tops of the tomato plants several times a day.
    Follow all of these stops to produce large, lush tomato plants that cost less compared to buying them. Starting tomatoes from seeds means you will have plants that are healthier and free from diseases or pests.

    If you’re reading this, you probably already know the basics: water, food storage, first aid, etc. But even hardcore survivalists can overlook items that could be important. In this post, I’m going to list 100 survival items you might have forgotten to buy.
    Originally, this was a list of 50 survival items, but since then, I’ve gotten all sorts of comments and messages from people telling me about other things preppers often forget. Once I had 50 more, I added them to the list. Now there’s a total of 100.


    To be clear, this isn’t meant to be a comprehensive list of every survival item you’ll need. It’s just a list of the ones that are often overlooked. Hopefully, it will help you fill in any gaps in your survival plan. For everything on this list that you already have, give yourself a pat on the back.

    15. Bug Spray

    There is usually a major lack of proper sanitation after a disaster, especially if there isn’t running water. That means there will be more roaches and other critters. There might also be a lot more mosquitoes.

    No need to waste batteries or wait for the sun to charge it up. This one also has a port for charging electronics.

    29. Crowbar

    30. Dental Kit

    A first aid kit is obvious, but many preppers forget that dental emergencies are also very common.

    A must-have for any prepper.

    If you get desperate for food, you might need this.
    36. Fire Blanket

    A quick and easy way to extinguish a small fire.
    37. Fire Extinguisher

    For larger fires, you’ll need one of these. We’re supposed to be preparing for emergencies and fires are a very common emergency. Don’t forget this one.
    38. Floss

    It’s even more important than your toothbrush. If you’re not flossing now, get started.
    39. French Press

    40. Frisbee

    I know this sounds silly, but there are actually several things you can do with one.

    48. Kiddie Pools

    You’re better off getting these at a flea market or yard sale. Believe it or not, there are all sorts of things you can do with them.
    49. Landline Phone

    If the power goes out, a simple landline phone will continue to work. But that’s just one type of SHTF communication.
    50. Maps of Local Areas

    Most of us have gotten used to relying on Google Maps and GPS, but those could become things of the past. Paper maps never stop working.
    51. Meat Thermometer

    Very helpful item if you want meat that is safe to eat but still nice and juicy. Here is a guide to recommended temperatures.

    52. Mesh Strainer

    Strain oil, rendered fat, herbs, etc.

    So you won’t have to waste water cleaning dishes.
    57. Paracord

    It has dozens of applications. Here’s a list of 44 fantastic uses.

    58. Pencil and Paper

    These are historic times so keep a journal. Also important for games and making lists.
    59. Pet Supplies

    Don’t forget about your pets! There’s a detailed list of pet supplies in this post.
    60. Plant Pots

    Plants are often easier to grow in pots than in the ground.
    61. Plastic Sheeting

    For repairing leaks, collecting water, keeping out contaminants, and much more.
    62. Plywood

    It can protect your windows during a hurricane, but it’s also great for many other unanticipated construction projects.

    63. Powdered Butter and Eggs

    It’s amazing how many recipes require butter and/or eggs. These are hard to store long-term, so try some of the powdered variety.
    64. Powdered Juice Mix

    Because you’re going to get sick of drinking room-temperature water.
    65. PVC Pipe

    As with plywood, this is great to have around just in case.
    66. Rem Oil Wipes

    This stuff is awesome. It’s not just for firearms. You can also use it to keep anything metal clean and protected from rust.
    67. Rubber Bands

    I use these to keep small items together and organized, and sometimes string just isn’t enough.
    68. Safety Pins

    Use as a fish hook, hang stuff to dry, fix shoelaces, attach gear to your bug out bag, connect blankets or tarps to build a shelter, etc. Your imagination is the limit.
    69. Sandbags

    Use to protect your home from flood waters. They can also be used to gather water, carry supplies, trap animals, patch tents, and much more.
    70. AxeSaw

    71. Seed Sprouter

    Sprouts are tasty and healthy, making them a great addition to your survival food.
    72. Sewing Kit

    If your clothes tear, you might not be able to afford or even get access to new ones. Learn how to sew.



    73. Shoe Laces

    Again, you might not be able to get new ones. Plus, shoelaces have several uses.
    74. Shut-off Wrench

    Very important if you have gas power. A broken gas line is extremely dangerous.
    75. Slingshots

    Another way to kill small animals for food.
    76. Socks

    In the words of Lieutenant Dan, “Take good care of your feet!” They can also be used as gloves, pouches, bandages, masks, and tinder.
    77. Solar Air Lantern

    Set these in the sun for a few hours and they will light up your home or camp all night.
    78. Song Books

    As with acoustic instruments (mentioned above), these are good for entertainment and morale-boosting.
    79. Stainless Steel Pot

    Great for boiling water, heating soup, cooking Ramen noodles, making instant rice, etc.
    80. Steel Wool

    In addition to scrubbing pots, it can be used to start fires, peel carrots and potatoes, and plug mouse holes.
    81. Super Glue

    Seal small cuts, repair water bottles, fix equipment, etc.
    82. Survival Books

    You’ll need this as a reference. Check out my post on the 100 Best Survival Books of All Time.
    83. Tarps

    Use them to keep stuff dry, provide shade, carry things, and so forth.



    84. Toys

    Another good way to keep kids entertained. Find some good toys that don’t require batteries.
    85. Treadle Sewing Machine

    With this, you can fix clothes or sew new ones without power.
    86. Umbrellas

    Do you have one? If so, does it work well? And do you have extras for your family members?
    87. Vacuum Sealer

    In addition to sealing food, you can also seal things that could corrode, things that could dry out, and you can reseal mylar bags.
    88. Vaseline

    It’s a firestarter, it prevents rust, and it’s even useful for first aid. Here are 4 reasons to buy it.



    89. Vehicle Escape Tool

    If you ever get into a major car accident and can’t get out of your car, this tool will help you cut through the seat belt and break the glass.
    90. Vet Wrap

    Self-adherent tape that holds bandages in place.
    91. Waterproof Wristwatch

    Nowadays most people check the time on their phones or computers. In a SHTF scenario you might want to have a good watch.
    92. WD-40

    Good for much more than lubricating hinges.
    93. Whistles

    These can be a lifesaver if someone is under attack or lost.
    94. Whiteboard and Markers

    My wife uses one as a calendar, to jot down notes, grocery lists, etc. Could be useful.



    95. Wind-Up Clocks

    So you don’t have to waste batteries.
    96. Window Insulator Kit

    These are essential during the winter, especially if the power is out and you want to keep the heat inside.
    97. Wonderbag

    A non-electric portable slow cooker. All you have to do is bring your food to a boil, then put it in the bag. It retains the heat and slow cooks your food for hours. This thing is awesome!
    98. Yard Bags

    Heavy duty bags will be useful for all the trash and debris that accumulates.
    99. Zip Ties

    These can be used for building shelter, repairing clothes, building snares, and more.
    100. Ziploc Bags

    Great for keeping things dry and organized.
