Hurricane Sandy Ordeal. How do I convince dad to leave his house next time?
We lost power for 5 days during Hurricane Sandy. The weather was suppose to drop down to 30 degrees. My son called and told me and my father to come to his house. He has a big home with a huge playroom with TV, two couches, blow up mattresses and a full bathroom. I told my father and he refused to go. I asked him why. He said he didn't want to leave his cat. He has a feral cat that is totally anti social. It runs and hides and is impossible to find. I told him the cat would be fine for a few days with food and water. He still refused to go and told me to go. How could I go and leave my father whose 97 in a cold house with no power? I find this totally selfish of him. Also with the winter coming this could happen again. i'm going to tell him if another emergency situation occurs, and he refuses to leave, I will be forced to call the police department and tell them how he refuses to leave.. I'm sure once they are notified they will not allow him to remain in the house and they will remove him and place him in a safe place. I know this will not go over well with him and will only be another battle. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
