cream is an unknown quantity at this point

First, that link doesnt like me - it shows up as a 404 (page not found).

Second, without hesitation. We have three doors for our home, and already plan for ER type issues to happen. I get the kids, and the husband gets the inside cat. Since we have 3 outside animals the dogs area is far enough from the house that it would not be affected (unless the house blew up, normal fire no), the cats both that are outside would leave on their own so we would only need to grab the newest kitty.

For us it would depend. I'd like to say, yes, without hesitation, but you never know what the emergency would entail. I would never happily leave them, it would be heartbreaking, but if I had to do it, I would. I would try everything I could to be able to take them.

I have said to my boyfriend on many occasions, if there was ever a fire and I couldn't get the animals out then i wouldn't go. I'd stay with them and die with them. Or try to protect them.
