Default Do landlords allow Hedgies?

I currently live in a duplex where pets are allowed, but this summer I will be moving into an apartment, and a few places I've seen say "No cats or dogs allowed"

Does anyone live in an apartment (or know someone who does) and is permitted to have their hedgie with them? If so, did you have to make any sort of deal or bargain with the landlord?

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

It depends on the landlords for each place. Most of the time if you ask them directly, they'l tell you whether they allow small animals as pets. Though most of the time they dont even know what a hedgehog is and assume they are rodents. And most places wont allow hamsters or mice because they fear an escape or infestation. If you explain that a hedgehog is NOT a rodent, and that you have him in a secure cage with no chance of escape, maybe they will allow you to keep him. If not, consider a different apartment or rehoming your hedgie if it comes to having no other choice.

Thanks guys I'd like to avoid having to rehome my hedgie so let's hope i'll be allowed!
*crosses fingers* I emailed the landlord asking about his pet policy, so we'll see

Tell them that it is a "caged" animal. That made the difference for us. It was a stretch of the truth, because we do let our hedgies roam, but for the most they are "caged".

Good Luck!

Hey, I live in a rented apartment and I asked my landlord if having my hedgehog would be a problem. He was fine with it and I didn't need to bargain.

The only advice I can give really is to reassure them that you keep them clean and it doesn't run around on its own unsupervised. My landlord was more concerned about there being any damage to his property.

i would look into it before hand. ask the landlord of the new place specifically, you dont want to move in and then find out you have to get rid of your hedgie or be evicted.

My landlord allows everything but dogs - cats and exotics are fine. Not sure why with the dog thing. Maybe they are worried someone will have a yappy dog who annoys the other tenants? It is a pretty small building. I agree with everyone else; ask landlords ahead of time and make sure you explain what a hedgie is. Perhaps bring some photos of the cage set-up. You might have to pay a damage deposit for having a pet, but I think that depends on the animal and landlord.

Our apartment complex allows anything in a cage without having to pay rent for them. They allow dogs and cats though with deposit.

Dogs often cause a lot more problems because they are in charge, not their owners. They can be very destructive. Even good ones can add a lot of wear and tear. I would not allow dogs.

No offense to the good, responsible dog owners, but the ratio of inconsiderate/unfit dog owners to good ones is, in my observation, pretty darn high.
