5 Things to Consider for Cat-Friendly Apartments

When searching for a cat-friendly apartment or house, there are a few things you need to consider besides whether or not the property allows cats. Be sure to keep in mind the property’s surroundings, interior compatibility with your cat, and its proximity to pet care. The following are some things to consider when shopping for a new rental with your cat.
