Pet Strollers: Safety and Convenience in Emergencies

We've had customers tell us how handy their pet strollers were in difficult times, but we got to experience this ourselves this weekend. The Midwest has been suffering through some severe storms, and here in Milwaukee we had tornado warnings on two days over the weekend.

In the old days, we would've had to cram our cat into a carrier, bounce him around as evacuated to the basement of our condo building, and then left him in the tight quarters until returning to our home. But, things were different because we have a Jeep Wrangler Pet Stroller.

When the tornado sirens sounded, Geri and I zipped our finicky cat in the safety of his pet stroller. We were able to grab a couple sodas on the way out of our condo and placed them in the stroller's parent tray. We rolled Sassy to the elevator and got him and us down to the basement with ease. And, since we were stuck for 45 minutes waiting for the storm to pass, Sassy was comfortable in his pet stroller--he could lay down, stand up, and peer out the front and back of the pet stroller, which made his wait in the basement much more pleasant.

Sassy, we, and our condo are all fine. Unfortunately, the repeated storms have left quite a bit of flooding in our city. Hopefully, the weather will turn better and allow people to dry out soon!

It's nice to know that if and when we need to get our cat to safety, we can do so quickly and easily with our pet stroller!
