Petco Says Don't Forget About Pets When Preparing For Zombie Apocalypse

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Petco, headquartered in San Diego, is celebrating Halloween by encouraging pet owners to include their `fur kids` in any zombie survival plan.


`Although the predicted zombie apocalypse is most likely unfounded, if it is indeed fact and not fiction, it can`t hurt for parents to prepare on behalf of their fur kids as well,` the company said.

The company said pet owners should pack survival gear, including both human food and pet food, in a Bison Pet Scamper Dog Pack that a dog can easily carry out of the house in the event of a zombie attack. The store said to make sure dogs own a Petco ghoul or skeleton costume to get away in disguise."


The Zombie Apocalypse may be myth, but a prudent person won`t let the snickers of his friends and family, dissuade him from preparing for such a catastrophe.

I know apocalyptic-minded folks who have tons of freeze-dried food, hundreds of bottles of water, and enough ammunition to fend off zombies for weeks.

But none of these survivalists, some of whom are animal rights activists, have made provisions for their pets. I wouldn`t want to survive the Zombie Apocalypse without my dog by my side and my cat on my lap. A Zombie Apocalypse survival gear should include both human food and pet food.

Dear friends prepare for Halloween by buying a costume for your cat or dog, and prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse by stocking up on pet food.
