I knew someone who had the problem with cats that you have with dogs. Of course, the cats were hers. There was no way to get the smell out of that house. Then she blamed the guy with the dog who had rented the house, but the smell was definitely cat.

I was looking for apartments to rent, and I was up front about my four cats, and I also added that I was a veterinary assistant and all my cats were litter boxed trained, vaccinated, microchipped and strictly indoors. Most places made exceptions. But one place told me, okay, it's a hundred bucks deposit per cat. Fine. But then she said her manager told her that three cats was the limit. So I said thanks and didn't pursue it. I got a call a couple weeks later from the complex asking if I got rid of one of my cats and would I like to resubmit my application. Oh, sure.

I am now a landlord, and even though we have dogs, we do not allow dogs. In the beginning we did, but the very first tenant we had in one of the units had a small dog that did over $5,000 in damage when they left him in the garage or the house alone. We never saw the money. We did try to make exceptions a few times, all were disastrous. However, we do accept therapy animals (we have disabled adult children ourselves) and cats and other caged "critters" as we haven't had problems with them. Most people looking for apartments get ticked off when they try to talk you into taking their dog when you say no dogs, no exceptions.

As for not allowing kittens, that sounds fishy. It almost sounds like they're making up the rules as they go. I'm glad you found another place to live, and I do hope you'll be happy there. If you ever move to Alaska, we'd be more than happy to rent to you.

I have nothing constructive to add. Your landlord is clearly an idiot, and I'm glad you're moving.

I've been in your boat before. I had to buy a second home before I could sell my first, due to my condo board threatening to sue me over my cats. People can be such jerks!

Good luck with your move. I wouldn't even waste any energy fighting this.

Oh, I think I understand if it is a subsidized. In the Denver area they don't allow any pets at all in subsidized housing no matter what. There are a couple places downtown that are through some other groups (one is through Catholic Services, I think) and they allow pets. I don't think those others will even let you have a bird or fish. I hope that you can find a new place and get moved in really soon so you can get your kitten back. It is great that you have someone to foster her in the meantime.

Yes the cat is wonderful about the litter box. And she is sweet and non destructive. Shes had her shots and theres no reason I shouldnt have her. My therapist wrote a letter explaining that she is a companion pet for my therapy...and I am also a disabled senior. They are just miserable people who want to make good people suffer. Im moving into another apartment on Dec.6-7. What theyre doing is unjust and illegal. I dont have . Time or money to hire an attorney. Im just moving out asap.This is a HUD subsidized high rise in Rochester NY.Too bad they arent concerned about the presence of bedbugs as much as my kitten! Another reason I am moving out. But thank you all for caring about my beautiful kitten...I miss her and cant wait to be reunited. Shes being fostered by a rescue person...God bless her. At least she cares enough to help. Thanks....Scott

Does the kitten use the litter box? When I got April as an 8-week-old she used the litter box most all the time. The only times she started not to was when she went where my dog had (Annie did after trauma) and I only had to get after her once. I don't understand why they would discriminate against the kitten for age only if it is using the litter box. I suppose if a kitten or cat wouldn't use the litter box (and that wouldn't be age for a reason) that might be a reason to not allow you to have a cat. In that case I would think it would be a "no pets" policy, not a "no kittens under this age" policy.

As the cat is a companion animal or otherwise a service animal, what they are doing is against the federal law about service animals!

Either she has wood floors and is afraid of cats that aren't litter box trained yet, or she is afraid of teething problems. I've never had a litter box problem with a kitten over about 2 months and as for teething problems, unless the house is furnished where the kitten might chew on the furniture never had a problem. I've rented houses and never had a restriction on cats. But then even my destruction on dogs was strange. The dog had to have passed the good citizen test or my test. If the dog messed it up you fixed it. The biggest problem I ever had was with a fish tank.

I wonder if that "small print" is actually legal. You might take the issue to one of the attorneys who answer questions of that nature for free. It would be the same as saying you can't have a pet over "X" years of age, too. Would she expect a tenant to abandon an older pet?

If your cat is part of a therapy, you might get your doctor(s) to write an exclusionary letter on your behalf.

I suspect your landlord foresees the same sort of troubles as you'd get with an unhousetrained puppy... but as we know, kittens don't have puppy issues. Anything a kitten might do would be limited to your property, not hers.

You should inspect your lease. Your kitten is definitely "under 30 pounds". Sounds like there's a contradiction of terms there which might be worthy of pursuit. Only the attorney can tell you that.

I don't know of any suggestions, but I find this appalling. If you pay a pet deposit, it should not matter the age of the pet. Before I bought houses, I always had a couple & there was never an age limit. I guess the only way to be sure is to ask upfront if it is allowed...Goiod luck!

I was told when I moved in that cats and dogs under 30lbs were allowed in my apt building. Soni rescued a beautiful female torti from a horse trailer in the country. Her siblings were all killed by foxes. She wouldve been next but I rescued her and the mother just in time. The Apartment Manager saw the kitten during an "emergency" inspection. She informed me that the "small print" in rhe lease doesnt allow cats under a year old! Ughh! So I had my therapist write a letter saying this was a companion pet and that it should be allowed as part of my therapy. This manager had a bad attitude and said either I get rid if my pet or "They would Remove it!" I have to move....just to keep her! I found a sweet rescue lady with 7 cats who is fostering her till I move on Dec6. How uncompassionate is this person. This will cost me hundreds...plus I cant be with my cat for two more weeks. Everyone I told is shocked but it should be illegal to unlock the door and take my pet! Im disgusted. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks, Scott
