How to Find a Cat-friendly Apartment
Moving with Kitty
One of the biggest challenges cat owners face when relocating is finding a landlord who hasn’t had a bad experience with destructive or malodorous pets. But before you cross out any listing in the paper that reads “NO PETS!”, consider these tips for improving your chances of you and your feline finding a new apartment.
• Ask your current landlord or rental association to provide a letter of reference explaining how your pet was never a problem to any of the tenants and that your cat caused no damage to the property.
•Supply documentation that your pet has been spayed or neutered and has had rabies vaccinations. Landlords see spayed or neutered cats as less likely to be a nuisance to neighbors or exhibit problem behavior.
