    Default Our morning started off a little scarey!!

    Joe my husband gets up at 5 for work our house was freezing, he immediately came and woke me up and told me to come smell, we could smell like an electrical smoke in our home. Last night in Florida. we dipped down to 31 and had to turn on our central air/HEAT.

    We found the source, the fuse box beside our unit in the closet was smoldering and melting!!! , He pulled the fuse box out and turned the main fuse off in the garage. Of course the coldest day in Florida, Sunday it is suppose to be 77* again, and this happens.

    WHAT would have happened if I had left for work? My house would have caught on fire with Vegas inside!!! My Question....Where do I find one of those stickers you put in your front window alerting the fire department you have a pet inside?

    I have never thought about putting one of those stickers up and it just dawned on me to do so!!! We are very fortunate that it happened at the same time, well a little before 5 and not while we were at work!! Counting my blessings today.

    I'd say you can count your blessings this morning!
    For the stickers..... Call the fire department and ask them.

    That is so scary. I am so glad it didn't turn into anything worse. I think I got my sticker from my vet, check the fire dept like Bruce said. Also I am sure you can purchase one at a pet store.

    Always with me

    Oh my that is scary! That is just crazy scary! Let us know when you find out about the stickers and are you supposed to put them in a certain place on the window? I need to get some of those too. Glad all is okay but not a great way to start out your morning.

    And how do we determine that the fire dept sees those stickers? This scares me also. I've thought about flooding. We have a river that runs right behind us and a river that runs in front of us...across the highway. What if I was at work and there was a breech in the levy? Both Vegas and Orion are in their kennels downstairs...they wouldn't even be able to run up to the top level. I'm going to look into those stickers...but I have some questions also.

    aspca also has those stickers. I think if you look online maybe they can send them out? They automatically sent them to me this year I guess since I was on their mailing list. Good question tho, where is the best place to put them?

    You are so lucky @KMARINO I wouldnt even want to think what could have happened. WOW!

    Awww I'm so sorry kmarino! Definitely a scary morning!

    Protection One alarm had a promotion online giving those stickers out for free and thats how I got mine. I have also seen them at the check out area of pet stores. I have one on my front door and one on my back slider. That is one of my worst nightmares, be it fire, flood, something happening at home and I am not able to get there to save my babies Even with the stickers though I am with Libra, I still fear that they won't be seen in time to save them. I am a huge worry wort!

    I went on ASPCA website and @cali~jenn is right you can order them. I hope the safety pack indicates where to place them or I will have them everywhere! I have thought about that all morning! I have Brodie, when were gone, locked up in my bathroom until potty trained, etc. Lola is out in the house, but wow I am also, like @TessaAndSamson a huge worry wort! I am also going to contact my alarm service and make sure they know because I don't know if I told them or if they asked.

    I am a big worrier as well, and I always worry about the house catching fire and whether or not the fire dept. will save butler. the fire dept. is on the same block as my neighborhood, so i know they would get here in time to save him, but i put a combination lock on butler's crate to prevent some thugs from stealing him in the event someone burglarizes our home. i have the combination set to the fire and police code for "animal" so i hope they would be able to figure that out. even if they couldn't, they do carry bolt cutters and are supposed to save animals. I would sue the hell out of the city if they didn't make every effort to save butler. There is a sign on both entrances to the house and his crate is highly visible in the living room, no excuses fire department! if they will perform acrobatic feats and spend hours and hours to save an angry cat, they better do anything necessary to save my dog!

    Wow! That is crazy! In Canada we sell them at Petsmart, walmart. One of my clients made one with a picture and all the information and laminated it and put it on her door but I didnt think that would be too smart for robbers with bullies! Thank God everything turned out okay!
