Yes, you still have a responsibility to your beloved pets. It's difficult to plan for your pets in the event of a zombie infestation because no one is sure if animals can become zombies. If, in fact, our pets become blood-thirsty zombies lusting for some "human food," mankind is pretty much screwed. There are 171 million cats and dogs living in households across the
On the other hand, if the virus, contagion or whatever causes zombieism doesn't affect animals, then trusty Fido could be a great asset. He can help you hunt for food if you're surviving in the wilderness or warn you when zombies approach your campsite. He might even attack a zombie to protect you. However, if your dog's hunting experience prior to the zombie apocalypse was tracking down a potato chip in the couch cushions, and if your happy-go-lucky canine has "never met a stranger," it's doubtful he'll morph into a zombie attack dog overnight.
If you become a zombie, more likely than not, your pets are going to hate you on sight. Dogs like to roll in dead things, not be their loyal companions. Cats, on the other hand, hate people already. They probably won't care whether you're a zombie or still human as long as they are fed. Above all else, do not abandon your pets. There is a good chance that abandoned dogs will group together to form wild packs for protection. They will compete with you for food and become dangerous to humans. If you survive a zombie attack to fall at the paws of your 80-year-old neighbor's Labradoodle pair, Fluffy and Muffy, that's irony you won't have a chance to appreciate in the afterlife.
