FEMA's furry family teaches emergency preparedness

The "Ready Kids" web site of the US Federal Emergency Management Agency enlists a family of mountain lions to teach kids about preparing for emergencies:

Rex the dad is an explorer who loves taking his family on adventures. Purrcilla is the energetic and wise mom. And Rory is the strong-willed daughter who loves helping her parents plan for the family's many adventures.

The site includes three one-page comics on aspects of preparedness, as well as games, coloring pages and other activities. Illustrations by former Disney artist Betsy Baytos, who worked on The Rescuers, Pete's Dragon, Fox & The Hound, Mickey's Christmas Carol & The Black Cauldron.
