Unfortunately, some apartment complexes I have lived in had strict requirments on animals too. They have restricted the #/ medical history/ and declaw. I have always found a way to get around it though. My cat Bella has a very compromised immune system so I had the vet write a letter saying that she has had all the recommended (key word!) vaccinations- even though, it was no vaccinations at all because of her sickness...lol. They are not vet techs or veterinarians so I knew they wouldn't know(:guilty
. But I had to move somewhere and there was no way I was giving my kitty up.
As for the declaw thing...I had one apartment that required it. I told them that I would not get my cat declawed under any circumstances unless her own health was at risk! I did, however, make a counter offer to them. I told them that I would keep Soft Paws on her at all times to prevent her from scratching the carpet, etc. They accepted this and never followed up on it. I did keep the Soft Paws on her most of the time, when she didn't pull them off after a month or two. I suggest that you bring up an alternative to declawing to the landlords.
Good luck! You shouldn't have to get your kitties declawed if you don't want to!
