thanks everyone!!! I hate the idea of lying on an application... its just not who I am... and I know people do get accepted for rentals when they do have pets... and tbh… the extra stress about trying to hide the fact that we have a cat,... just seems like more of an effort then continueing to apply for houses... if that makes sense? we submitted our next application this afternoon... and included all of the extra stuff like the pet resume, the certifcates and a bit of info about the cat aswell as stating that we would clean the carpets etc every 6 months... so im hoping this will help our cause!!! will keep you posted!!!! we are bound to find somewhere soon!!! and who knows... maybe application number 6 (this one) will be our lucky one!!!!
