    I didn't believe this at first but yea it's true and I was just hit by this too.


    First Papa (grandpa) dies, then the stuff with bro-in-law and sis-in-law, and NOW...talked to my cousin who is helping us to look for a place to move in to (condo or townhouse for now) and he is telling me that I'll have to give up one of my 3 cats. sad So do not need all of this at once!

    I will not give up any of my cats and will be doing more research about the pet restrictions on those places. Last resort will be giving one cat to our best friends. But come on universe STOP PICKING ON ME!!!!

      Okay....One cat, three cats....who's gonna know.  Tell 'em you have two....unless your third cat can bark...I doubt they'd find out.  Just a thought. 

      Just understand you are not alone.  Alot of people are on the rollercoaster...if not yours, some other one and it sucks everywhere right now.

        lol no my cat can't bark but he doesn't run when ppl come so he would be seen most definitely. so if I said I had an all black cat and a tortie...and they see a tabby? lol i can say we're pet sitting but doubt that would work. And seriously places should be more accimdating for ppl with pets. not everyone has just 1 or 2 pets. sad I hate it!

        Ive been going through bad luck for about 5 months, I had lots of good luck before that, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. My issues have not been things that I can share on a public domain using my real name, but hopefully are all negatives which can be turned into some great positives. I sympathise with the cat thing, you know my cat got run over wink I am sure that you can find a way of keeping, or staying close to, your cat - the most important thing is that he enjoys a high quality of life.

          aaa ryan I am sorry you are dealing with a lot of bad luck and do hope that it gets better for you soon like TODAY would be nice! big_smile and sorry about your kitty. that is horrible.
          You are right...I already know who to give him too if I asolutely HAVE to. But it's hard...he's my baby.

    Don't give up your cats. Chances are, if you bring all of them, no one will even notice. Cats are usually so quiet.... we had cats in our last place and they technically weren't allowed, but no one cared.

      true but if we are caught we will have to pay a daily fine until we get rid of one...$50-250 fine sad I can't give up my baby sad

    Crazd, think of the time when all this will end and you will get a good news every single day, you have had your quota of bad news.
    I know its easy to tell others to see the light at the end of the tunnel and hard to do it yourself, but still, you got to cheer up and go through all this like a brave girl, which you are!

    Oh man so sorry CW and I don't even think a "that's nice" would fix this one.

    It's true though seems to come in three and we are just waiting for the third one here. Three died before or shortly there after Thanksgiving here, then a family issue, and another most disturbing death so we are waiting to see what the third thing will be.

    The last death was insane. My 2nd cousin was getting the Christmas tree out of the attic. He lost his footing, tried to brace himself and fell breaking his neck in the fall and died instantly at his granddaughters feet. It was very traumatic and hard for everyone to take.

    I hope things get better for you real soon as I do everyone else that is feeling the karma bus overload right now.

    Thanks guys it has been a tough couple of weeks. It all but stopped my writing because I haven't really been home all that much.

    You will find a place that doesn't charge extra for the cat I'm sure of it. I know you are feeling the pinch right now but something will turn up. Christmas will come and go without a hitch and you will be able to sit back and reflect on Papa the day after in quiet bliss.

    I hope you can find a more pet-friendly building. A friend at work has a chihuahua and she had such trouble finding a place even though her dog is litter trained. It is so unfair. In my opinion and experience, pets cause far less trouble than children smile

      As much as I love children, UW is correct. Pets don't draw on walls - unless they're really, really gifted. lol

      yep UW pets are definitely less trouble than kids lol and they lower stress and blood pressure. so why can't more ppl be open to pets? it's not fair! I hope your friend found a good place to live.
