Is it difficult to find pet friendly apartments? I'm moving out at the end of the year and will likely be living alone cause it's difficult to find roommates that understand and respect illnesses but I'm scared about getting isolated so was considering adopting a cat (or dog but idk if I could keep up with that energy lol unless I got an old one) and your post just made that a far more serious option for me
I just went on Zillow and was able to select “allows pets” as an option and it was super helpful! Also, if you are chronically ill (mentally or physically), you can get your doctor to sign a note saying that you need a pet as a companion animal (different than a service animal btw). That’s what my last roommate did and she was able to keep her cat in a complex that didn’t normally allow pets (legally they have to let you because of disability accommodations.) Hope this helps!
