You can try all you want, but finding a place around here that allows pets is darn near impossible! My house that I use to live, it said in the paper, NO PETS, we went to look at it, I asked her if she would make an exception to the rule and she did! (of course it also wreaked of dog in there from the previous tenents so I could understand why she did it)
Its a problem sometimes finding a place that allows pets! Thats when you go country house shopping though! Them things are a couple hundred bucks a month and you can do what you want with them! yeah, you got to drive to work and everywhere else and pay the extra cash, but sometimes its worth it!
I have the benefit of a family member owning my house! When my last one got broke (the front porch fell off) we had to move THAT NIGHT! So needless to say the cats couldn't go with! It was really hard, but we talked my MIL to take them till we found a house! It was 2 months without my kitties! Two long months at that, but we got a place, (my gma and gpa bought it, and now rent it to us) and got our cats back!
I really think it sucks that people are dropping there pets off like that though... on the other hand, around here, that would be the nicest thing they could do. Most people kill them, drownd them, or shoot them. Its sad, I even cought my own father doing it once. He had 100 or so cats on the farm, so they had to downsize. I about killed him!
