We're both landlords and tenants, and personally I'm happy to have pets in our rental property. However, most landlords don't feel this way. When we started acquiring animals we were OOs. Now we have two cats and two tiny pomeranians in a property we are renting from friends. We have no plans on acquiring any more pets. Yes, this seems like a lot, but when you consider one of the cats is a 14 year old sleeping machine, and that the total weight of our pets is less than the average staffy, it really isn't so bad. It looks like we are probably going to be moving on the from the small town we are living in sometime soon. I'm not sure where in Australia we will end up, but I'm very worried about renting again with our "unrentable" number of pets. I have a pet resume with details such as, all desexed, housetrained, adult, flea treated, wormed, dog weighs 1.3 kg etc. However, I fear that this will not be enough. My pets are far from destructive so I am not at all concerned about them damaging anything, and we could certainly obtain references from our friends to that effect. Do any of you lovely landlords have any other ideas? Should I be saving up so we can offer extra rent? What would make you confident in renting to us? We do not have any children and are otherwise ideal tenants. Needless to say, giving away any of them or keeping them outside isn't an option.
