I am moving to Tampa FL. I have ALWAYS wanted to live near the ocean/blue water. I am finally getting my chance and I cannot find ANYONE to rent me a room/apartment because of my cat. I am not leaving her or abandoning her; she is 10 1/2 years old and what a LOVER. I am also moving so I can dive, dive, dive! Can ANYONE help me?? Tell me who will rent to me with a cat? I am also a non-smoker, non-drinker.

Hi Diverdeb77,

Boy, can I relate to YOUR situation!!! I am contemplating a similar move to FL or HI or maybe even Thailand. However, I will not leave my cat behind unless it is with a trusted pet sitter, like perhaps my niece, and even that would only be for a limited time. I would miss my Tigger too much and I think he would miss me too.

Anyway, I hope you find your rental and happy diving!

Thank you David; WOW Thailand what a super place to dive!

best regards,

Isn’t it funny how our lives sometimes revolve around our animals. I’m doing the same thing for our dog. Can’t move somewhere unless they accept German Shepherds.

Yes, I COMPLETELY understand! It is funny but I think I am more attached to my "Abigail" than I have ever been to a human.

Deb - My dogs have been my children - so I understand completely. BTW, when you get to Tampa, let me know. I live in Brandon - just east of Tampa.
