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.
