Ugh..... - RasZoBai
Well. Let me tell you a story.......
Last week our kitchen suffered not one, but TWO floods. After spending the bulk of our Monday with buckets, mops and every towel we own, we called in a plumber. Apparently our pipes had leaked, which caused the water anyone above us used to empty onto our floor. And so, when said plumber was called and came over for a visit we learned that a leaky pipe was the least of our problems. After cutting a hole in the wall (you know. The only red accent wall in the entire place) they discovered that there are vast amounts of mold growing.
On Monday morning we were dealing with a leak, and by Tuesday afternoon we were packing up our clothes to vacate the premises for at least two weeks!
Because of all of this, we had to figure out an immediate game plan for the furry family. Sadly, our cats cannot come with us to my parents house, as their cat is somewhat CRAZY and wouldn't be able to deal with others in his house. Thankfully my bestest friend in the entire world graciously offered up her apartment for the cats.
This is Rascal and Zoe on their way to Auntie Kimmy's. Bailey, Scott and myself are camping out at my parents place. While I know this is temporary, the idea of being seperated from my cats is killing me. Yes, I'm aware this might make me a crazy lady, but I don't care.
Zoe and Bailey are great- barely even notice they're not at their home right now. Rascal however is NOT doing well. Usually he's pretty laid back, social and lovey. I thought that Zoe would have been more upset about the move before Rascal. But he's not eating, drinking or socializing at all. He crept into the farthest point of a closet and wouldn't come out. I arrived at my friends last night to sleep over and try to coax Rascal out of his depression. I managed to get him to come out, but he refuses to eat :( I've put some of my clothes around the apartment for some familiar smells....but I don't think my Scooner is going to last long in such a different environment.

So if anyone out there knows of a short term, pet friendly, furnished rental space....please let me know. I'm on the hunt for a place where WE (and I mean pets) can stay together.

I hate mold........

What a horrible thing to have happen. Poor Rascal! I hope you find a place soon.

Check out places like extended stay hotel. My dad has stayed there for business and I have seen dogs in the halls.

We've opted to just stay with the rents until we can move again. The cats are getting better with the bunny. Bailey is LOVING living with my parents, as she gets spoiled rotten!

Sorry we have been MIA for the last while! This is very terrible! Our last place had mold and no one did anything about it, so we just moved.

Good luck!

Yes, mold is no fun! Thankfully we all had somewhere to go in the meantime. We just found a new apartment, so things are looking up :)

I hope you found a pet friendly place to stay! It is so hard to be away from your pets and I know it is hard for them also :) Hope things work out and you get back to your home soon!

Thank you so much! We JUST found a new place for June, so hopefully we will be reunited with the furry family :)
