    Great article! Thanks. I’m searching for flat with my 2 cats hah. It’s really hard, you know. Totally agree with the statement, that somehow renting with pets give your landlord an opportunity to manipulate with additional fees, sometimes it comes to the point of absurdity and nonsense. From this article, I’ve understood the key problem, but the solving is still slightly unknown and complicated. Maybe some of you made so-called “pet resume”? Recently found a nice article about this feature:
    I have never had an experience writing such resume. If you did – give me a feedback, please. Really interested in the effectiveness of this method!
