Good news bad news (Monday's update)

Post by Steve Touchston » Wed, 02 Jul 2003 12:32:46



Mostly good news to report after today's meeting with the management, at
least for old time tenants. It seems the present tenants will be
grandfathered, but it's a case by case basis. They haven't agreed to
drop the single pet and declaw clauses of the new policy. Hopefully,
after our talk they will do a little re-thinking the policy and drop the
declawing requirement for any new tenants.

On the personal side, things worked out well. Once I told them I'd leave
before I parted with either Little Bit or Sammy, and wouldn't consider
declawing, they relented, made out a modified pet policy which we both
signed. So now I don't have to worry about having to move or finding a
new place to call home. I'm happy that I'll be able to stay here, as one
of the big concerns was making sure the neighborhood gang continued to
get enough to eat. I had already talked with the neighbor across the
street, and learned he was already putting out food, too. You know how
that goes, though, you still what to be able to keep track of them yourself.

One good thing is that this has motivated me, and I'm going to finally
get off my ***and take Whitie in to TED. He'll probably hate me for
awhile (last time I took him in he disappeared for a couple weeks), but
I've been procrastinating too long on getting him checked out and
neutered. His ESP must have kicked in, though, as he didn't show up for
dinner as usual tonight.

I'm glad the management is grandfathering tenents. I thought maybe they
would. Hope Whitey turns up soon!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for this to happen.

I hope that when you get him there he will be found to be in perfect health

Hooray! That must be a relief! I hate moving, so you would have had my
sympathies. I hope they don't pressure new tenants to have their cats
declawed. Some people don't care about it and would be willing to do it.

Wonderful news, Steve -- I'm sooo happy for you that you got them to see
things your way.

I'm glad that the new management decided to be flexible, though hiss
to their keeping their declaw policy for general tenants.

It sounds like you were down in the dumps before, but these new
concerns woke up your spirit.  Purrs for Whitie's neutering.

That is really good news for you. I hope they do rethink the declawing
requirement. Hope Whitie reappears soon.

It means if there is a rule change it doesn't affect people who have been
operating under the old rules.  Just newcomers.  Pretty common practice
for a lot of things like zoning.
