For those of you that worry about this, I’ve recently started to use Dead Man’s Switch, a website solution that holds a (final) email message in storage until preset queries from the site go unanswered.
It makes me crazy to think that if I die, my pets might suffer too.
Here’s the email message that I composed:
*This message was sent from an internet software program that I set up called “Dead Man’s Switch.”
This software is designed to notify you in case I am incapacitated (or worse). The software requires that I check in daily. If I miss a check in, the software will send this message.
If you have received this message, there’s a good chance that I AM incapacitated (or worse), and that (Pet 1) and (Pet 2) are alone and in danger.
PLEASE make an effort to contact me ASAP.
A Lifetime Premium Upgrade of $20 allows up to 100 recipients, 100 messages and custom interval setting.
I’m not alone very often, but when I am, this gives me a little peace of mind.
