My husband and I may be relocating to the Minneapolis area next spring and it seems like the majority of apartments that I have seen online require that your cats be declawed. This is extremely uncommon where I currently live. Are apartments at all flexible on this issue? Does anyone know if they would allow us to pay a larger security deposit for our cats with claws? Thanks!

I'm going to guess that the big complexes won't give on the issue but some private landlords might. Depending on the situation we would probably require an extra, non-refundable security deposit, for example.

The apartment complex where I used to live allowed clawed cats if they had something like SoftPaws covering their claws.

I had the same reaction when I moved here a few months ago. Declawing cats is incredibly uncommon where I'm from as well and I really did not want to for several reasons. I am now renting a condo in Minneapolis through a leasing agent and when I contacted them about this issue, they had to get the owner to waive the requirement which the owners did. No extra security deposit needed (above and beyond the regular pet deposit). So I wouldn't immediately strike a place off of your list that advertising as requiring cats be declawed, it doesn't hurt to ask about exceptions.

Perhaps it's based on location or budget, but nothing I've ever seriously looked at has had a requirement that cats be declawed.

my only comment is that if cats are going to be declawed, it should be done at the vets office and not inside someone's apartment
