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.

    You should always hide your pussy from the landord.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I'm envisaging a "Mr Shickadance" situation.

    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.

    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.
