Aww that sucks!
Just please whatever you do- if the landlord says you can get one but it has to be declawed.. PLEASE dont declaw! Maybe adopt a declawed one from a shelter? The procedure is much more than removing claws.. and i dont want to explain it xD

I used to be allergic too when I was younger, but luckily grew out of it having volunteered at a no kill shelter with 80 cats and coming home to two of my own

The only animals I seem to be allergic to are cockatiels and budgies...They have this weird dander called "powder feathers" and it's basically just that.

No I hate altering animals in any way except spaying/neutering. The landlord says no cats at all anyway. I think he just has something against cats because he allows dogs lol.

Haha okay :D Its sad that landlords support something like that often requiring people to do so just to keep their cat.
My cousin's landlord hated cats too. They brought a dog but had to rehome their cat! Its ridiculous.

My dogs have been more of a nuisance than the cats at my house!

You would think they usually would be! But maybe he just doesn't like that cats like to climb on/in stuff...

My neighbors have three cats they adopted one is de clawed because someone took him to the Vet had him de clawed and left him there The cat is lucky PETA didn't find him all there cats are adopted and only one was adopted as a kitten. I love my dog but our parents refused to adopt they had to get a Labrador with field blood. The lady was a farmer and did small breeding she seemed nice our dog came with a tracking chip corn food and paperwork I wish we had an adopted dog but our dog is great.

That is horrible that someone put their cat through declawing and then left it behind. Grrrrrrrr!!!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yes it is but he has a great life now although I might be remembering it wrong I know for sure he was de clawed and he was left at a vet but he is a little lazy and fat.

Im sure he has a great life despite the fact that he has bones, tendons and claws missing from his paws.
I hope his new owners love him lots!
