I'm considering a job opportunity within the Orlando area. One of the biggest factors in making my decision will be finding suitable housing. Most places I've looked at allow only 2 cats and/or dogs. I have 1 dog and 4 cats. Until I can afford to purchase a new home, I'll need a rental (apartment, condo, house, whatever). Are there any places within the Orlando area that will accommodate me and my pets? I'm not willing to leave any of them behind. I'd gladly pay a per pet rental fee each month.

You can find a place to stay but I recommend you rent through a private owner and not an apartment complex. Honestly, if your cats are indoor cats, who's gonna know anyhow unless they go into your place? I know people will say that they wouldn't do that but there would be no way I'd leave any of my pets behind either.

Thanks for the advice, Beckycat. They are indoor cats and I thought of doing just what you suggest - not say anything to management/landlord. I guess my fear would be someone snitching on me once I was there.

I do have 2 dogs myself, and I'm somewhat in the same boat as you (with regards to pets; I'm entertaining a potential move myself to the area.)

What I would do in your case is to get the landlord/management company to like you (your credentials, ability to pay) and then do a full disclosure on the pets. The last thing you want to do is to move to a place and then get evicted because of your cats. I am a bit annoyed with pet deposits myself, but I'll pay them if it means I'm not separated from my pets (which will never be an option to begin with.) Perhaps you can negotiate having inspections within the first 2-3 months of your stay so that the landlord gets comfortable with the pets if that's really an issue, but get them to see your ability to pay the rent and whatever deposits.
