I really want to buy a pet for me and my woman. Right now I have a chameleon but that's more decoration than a pet. She's a cute lizard who's fat and happy but I would like a dog or cat. I've decided on getting either a mini pincher or chiuaha or a burmese cat. Now, my apartment complex wants 500 non-refundable dollars to have a pet. I think this is a bit much seeing how they have an extra months rent from me for a deposit. I think in reality that they would rather have a paying tennant than to kick him or her out for having a rat sized dog that could only do damage to my puppy chow budget. Has anyone gone through this? Is there really a risk of getting evicted over a cute little dog?
