What kind of BS rule is that??!! Is it in writing?
In that case, why don't they just impose a no pet rule?

They do not want cats clawing up the carpet or walls or doors or anything else. Imposing a no pet rule would exclude other pets that would not do things like that.

I understand that and I agree it's not fair to other pets. Well, in that case they should ban all cats from the complex.
Or maybe perhaps they should impose higher security deposits for cat owners.

I think this would be an ideal solution.

When I got one of my cats I was living in an apartment that had a rule (I don't recall the actual rule) about pets that would not work for me. I talked with the property manager and he allowed me to have my clawed cat even though the rule said otherwise. It may be worth talking to your property manager CC.

That is horrible! For someone to think about mutilating an animal before any other solution!

I agree with GB - it might be worth going to the property manager.

If it were me, I'd stick horrifying pictures of declaw procedures under his door.

But that's me. And this makes me angry.

I think people need to keep in mind that unless you are a cat lover and have had a cat then chances are you do not know what is involved with declawing and how horrible it really is. Just because someone suggests it does not mean they are mean evil people. They may just not know any better. People need to be educated in a kind way IMO.

Thanks gang, I'm really pissed at my apartment complex, And you want to know a kicker?

Well On top of the rulesd I have to pay $300, or 410 a month until the fee is completely paid off for the pet association fee.

Isn't that stupid as heck?


Sorry I haven't had any time for the replies but I'm always studying.

The land lord will not let me get the cat unless he is declawed, and I don't have $200 to get the cat declawed, Neither does my folks.

So answering your question, No I didn't get him :(


But we're looking for a different apartment for me that doesn't have a lot of rules.

I'm sorry that you didn't get him, Chili. Although I am happy that he will not be declawed. I hope that you find a pet friendly apartment complex! Maybe your little guy will still be waiting for you when you do. If not, then it was not meant to be, and you will find another lucky kitty to bring into your home.
