Do any of you hide pets from your landlord?

Is this feasible?

It's just a cat and I really want this house!

You won't get away with it. Cats leave fur everywhere, and it'll be easily spotted.

Get a place that allows pets, if the House does not then lose the cat or choose another House.

I'd watch.

Cats stratch things. Landlord might not be too happy at the state of doors etc unless you have it well trained.

No.

Maybe see if you can work something out with the landlord rather than risk being thrown out for breach of contract?

I'm not sure these actually exist.

I'm tempted to ring the agent and come clean, maybe offer an extra tenner a month or summat.

Would be gutted if they said it wasn't acceptable and I lost the tenancy.

I'm allergic to cats, badly. There are sometimes reasons deeper than you think why someone may not allow/want it in their house. I wouldn't risk it.

it's not a good idea, is the landlord private or is it a company, might be worth asking if you're a good tenant in a private property, otherwise i wouldn't bother thinking about it!
you can spot/smell a pet friendly house a mile off...

They do we are in a rented place with a dog, then again if we hadnt of told the landlord he wouldnt know as he hasnt set foot in the place in the 8months weve been here

Our landlord didn't allow pets, I have a dog and 2 cats. The landlord was fine if I paid extra 100 deposit per pet when I moved in.

Pretty much this.

Unless, when you moved in, it was explicity stated "NO PETS", you'll find most landlords will be happy to come to an agreement as long as you're open about what kind of animal(s) you're bringing with you, and how well trained they are.

They're especially happy to come to an agreement when extra cash is waved at them.

Please read the FAQ regarding signature sizes

this tbh

mine said no till extra money was waived under his nose, there was a wee "pet damage" adjustment added to the deposit & problem solved.


I have lived with several Zen masters, all of them cats.

Do not hide the cat, whatever you do.

You will not be able to hide it. Pets leave traces - what happens if the landlord happens to drive past your house and sees the same cat in the garden repeatedly? Are you really going to hoover your house every day (or however often you'd have to do it, I'm no pet expert ) to hide the fact a cat lives there? Is your cat trained well enough? What happens when he/she invariably scratches stuff?

It will either get found or you will go insane hiding it.

Just tell your landlord and pay extra.

Don't even waste your time. Either find another place or live without a pet.

Although cats are nowhere near as bad as dogs. Cats barely scratch anything as long as you've got rugs and a scratching post.

Dogs scratch much, much more. They scratch windows, for example.

we have a cat and was no pets allowed...but I took the cat in anyway

landlord came around and I told him I had to have the cat as it's a stress reliever for me after my heart operation( total rubbish btw) and I@d leave the house the same way I got it when I moved out...he was pretty ok with me and the cat

My partners mum kept two house cats for longer than two years without problems. They went to visit a friend when an inspection was due.
