Other Suggestions:
Put the sky kennel together as a trial then store and transport it disassembled.
Use a towel to partially cover the sky kennel during the height of the storm for added security.
Allow the pet to become familiar with the sky kennel at home and before a disaster.
Grocery store plastic bags make excellent "pooper-scoopers".
Avoid excess bedding, as it may become soiled and difficult to clean during a disaster.
