We’re looking find a new apartment, and of course we first check on the apartment pet policy. We’ve had cats for eight plus years now and so, yes, they’re a part of the family.
We’re also at that age where the option of a “Senior” Apartment complex is a viable option. We like where we live and so I got to looking into local senior friendly apartment complexes in our area. One recent new property in our town are the, “Wheat Ridge Town Center Apartments.”
These are recently opened and already have a waiting list. The property looks nice and from my visit to the outside of the property and looking on line the facility would fit our needs. Thus I wanted to check out their pet policy.
From their web site I find the following:
Wheat Ridge is also a fan of pointy ears and whiskers. We ask only a few slight tasks of your feline friend to ensure the comfort of present and future residents.
What made us take notice is the property requirement that our cats be “Declawed.” A quick look at both The Humane Society of the United States, and ASPCA, finds that both organizations are against such actions. Our vet’s have also let us know of the problems of declawing cats as well.
Given that Wheat Ridge Town Center Apartments has put forth such a harsh, pet requirement, we’ve crossed them off our potential list.
If you have pets and are apartment dwellers, please ensure you check out any potential residential pet policies.
