I've been thinking about getting a cat for months now, and finally remembered to ask my landlord about the policy.

$400, $200 of which is nonrefundable. Sheesh.

Guess I'm starting Coriander's Kitty Fund. I'm horrible at saving money. Maybe by Christmas I'll have that much saved.

I hate high pet fees. I totally understand them, since pets can cause extensive damage and no doubt many people do not properly care for or clean up after their pets, but I wish landlords were more lenient and did background checks to be more fair. The new place we are moving into said "no pets" and then I negotiated a pet agreement whereby the landlord contacted ALL of my previous landlords and two references to check up on their experiences with my pets and then was comfortable offering me a $300 refundable deposit for 3 cats and 1 dog. So far, that's been the cheapest for me - 300 refundable for 4 animals - and all because the landlord was willing to make sure I was responsible. My first landlord required a $300 non-refundable payment for cats. The $300 itself wasn't too bad, but just having to pay that (and not get it back) at the same time as adopting the cat and paying for all of those expenses kinda sucked. Luckily, my housemate adopted cats and then paid me back for half of it to be fair. One of her cats had UTI and peed on her carpet, so we actually replaced ALL of the carpet in her bedroom ourselves and treated the subflooring with an enzyme remover. That landlord cannot claim we are irresponsible! I just wish more deposits were refundable.

That's not too bad. I had to pay $500
But, I think its refunded if I move out and there's no damage (which there isnt).

My Dad is my landlord so he doesn't mind that we have 2 cats. He even built an enclosed "cat land" outside so they can't get out onto the road. Dad's rule

I wish I could say that I wouldn't have spent that much money on a cat if my wife wasn't involved, but I know I would have ...

Huh, I didn't know landlords could charge extra for having pets...good to know for when I eventually move out (which will hopefully be in 2-3 years *crosses fingers*)

Wow! It must depend on where you live, because the most we ever paid for a cat deposit was $100 a year.

My sister swandiver recently got two new kitty boys, Smokey Joe, and Jack. They were adopted from a shelter--they had another brother and a sister, and all of them have homes now. Being their proud auntie, I think it's okay if I post their picture.

That's Patches. She's my socialized feral cat.

And yeah, I just spent about $600 on her after she got beat up twice by another cat.

OK, so when Chloe gets fed in the morning and evening, she gobbles it up right away and then continues to act hungry. She's been on the same serving for months now, she should be used to it...and I'm afraid the way she eats so fast could be contributing to her anal glands becoming impacted. She gets 1/3 in the morning and 1/3 in the evening, plus occasional food from the table and treats.

Thoughts?
