Denver's been having almost nightly tornado warnings. It really got me thinking about emergency situations in which Cooper might be alone in the apartment while I'm trapped downtown. Being me, I worry a little too much, but I think this is legitimate.
I had a nightmare a few weeks ago that a tornado hit downtown and I was trying to get home to save Cooper. Of course, I woke up before I even got to my place, but I don't know, what would I do? What would Cooper do? I'd like to think that some of his instincts are still strong enough to help keep him semi-safe. At least make him hide under the bed or even somewhere safer.
Yesterday was really scary; the tornado sirens were going off every 15 minutes or so. Cooper started pacing around and jumped into my lap and stayed there for about half an hour. I got really scared seeing him act that way; he doesn't ever sit in my lap for anything. I thought for sure the tornado will touch down but luckily, it blew to the north and we were ok. I guess yesterday made me think that I should have an emergency pack made up specifically for Cooper. Just in case.
