If you rent your home you want to feel settled and secure. If you’re a landlord, you want to know that your property is being well looked after.
That’s where cats come in. The purring heart of the home, a pet cat helps tenants feel happier and more likely to stay for longer, which is good news for landlords.
It’s common for tenancies to contain blanket ‘no pets’ policies but with more and more people now renting, this means landlords are missing out on a huge pool of responsible tenants who would treat properties as a valued home.
Whether you’re a tenant, a private landlord or a social housing provider, there’s plenty of reasons why cats make the perfect pets for rented homes.
The charity wants to encourage more landlords to introduce cat-friendly policies. We hope this campaign will help tenants to avoid having to rehome their cats and make it easier for them to find accommodation where they can own a cat.
