Yes I would very much like to know how pet rent started
To me people are getting greedy. Owners have to consider people
who live on fixed incomes

I've been in the same apartment 10 years. Over that time I have paid an addition $5000 for 2 small shih tzus, whose feet I wash every time they go out. I always pick up after them. they never bark, and every one loves them. I have paid to replace cheap carpet/which is what they put in 3 times over, and they have never had to paint my apartment in 10 years. People with children who cook curried foods, they have to compeltely gut the apartment every 2 years, including all appliances and the kitchen cabinets. No extra rent for them.

If you are on a fixed income, get rid of your pet and save thousands.

Actually, owners have to consider the best interests of their asset.

It's best to buy your own house if you have pets. But if a renter truly wants to have a pet, they should make sure they are able to afford it before acquiring one.

Also, especially for dogs, being trapped inside causes them great anxiety. They need a place to run and do their business. It's selfish to put an animal that needs lots of space, yard, and fresh air into a small apartment environment.

We all have to live within our means, even if on a fixed income. For many years I could not afford to have a pet, but I love animals dearly, so I took it upon myself to acquire the ability to provide for one.
