Dr's slip will not help you. You have to either find the kitty a new home be it temporary or permanent pay the security deposit or break your lease. Rules are rules.

OP- I know where you're going with this. You're looking into having your cat declared an emotional support pet.

That might be possible. Your housing has to qualify and your doctor has to write a letter stating that you need the cat for emotional support.

The landlord cannot charge you a pet deposit if you have an emotional support pet.

Read here and there is a lot more info on the internet for this.

Check your lease. Get the doctor's note. Discuss with them the option of paying out the deposit over the remaining 6 months rather than a lump sum.

If you need help negotiating, look into mediation. Perhaps your psychiatrist can recommend a mediator.

Congratulations on the rescue. I hope it all works out for you and kitty.
