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.
He's only short haired though and I have a vacuum!
Get a place that allows pets, if the House does not then lose the cat or choose another House.
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.
No - you dont live in the world of American sitcoms...
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.
I'm envisaging a "Mr Shickadance" situation.
We just asked!
Unfurnished house, so the only thing to worry about is carpets, which he has has a scratch at in a few places.
He more than makes up for any cost tho, love our kitteh!
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.
you asked and still have the Kitty - i assume the landlord said it was okay then?
mine said no till extra money was waived under his nose, there was a wee "pet damage" adjustment added to the deposit & problem solved.
