    Default Preparedness for your pets?

    I'm curious how much much food and water everyone keeps on hand/stocked up for all your pets?

    I always have about a 1 month supply of food on hand for the dog and 4 cats. I keep a few gallons of water downstairs too for the fish tank, but if anything ever happened, I could use them.

    (I go to Walmart once a month and stock up)

    I keep about 3 months supply of cat food for the indoor cats; I stock up when I get coupons. And I try to keep at least a 1 month supply of cat litter which I want to increase to 2 months but haven't figured out where to store it all yet.

    About a 1 month supply for the outside cats but I want to get this up to at least 2 months if I can figure out a good place to store it. A 1 month supply used to be enough for 2 months until we had two strays adopt this as their home so now I need to start buying more.

    And about 2 months supply for the chickens.

    We don't store water for the critters because we have a pond nearby and a creek at the bottom of the driveway so we can always haul water from one of those if we have to.

    We have three adult kitties and I get a six week supply of food for them each time I go to the pet store, once every six weeks. I also keep a small bag (8 lb.) of unopened food as their emergency stash in case of a snowstorm or something where we wouldn't be able to get out of the house and they already had gone through the regular food stash.
