IT is an EXPESSION - no SMOKE ,no PETS!
But after 2 weeks of no ACTIVITY on RENTAL property homeowner MAY wisper- SMALL PETS OK and TELL them SMOKE only OUTSIDE !
So, its always a HOPE- we will be rent a NEW place soon.
P.S. NEVER SMOKE toward loved ones...

Thank you, I was hoping that is the case. I see many apartments which would work great for me when I am ready to move, EXCept those saying no pets allowed and I know I can't be happy without my cat.

Yes, there are exceptions. Landlords must make reasonable accommodations for the disabled, including allowing a guide dog in a no pets building.

Some landlords would make an exception but others will not.

From my experience, sometimes landlords will accept small "toy dogs"

A call to the rental agent or management is strongly recommended. In my experience some landlaws might consider smaller pets.

I would recommend you check with the agent or owner of the particular place. Don't assume one way or the other to avoid misunderstandings.

Thank you very much. I noticed a few specifying that a cat would be ok but I am hoping I'm not too limited when I actually go to look.

Typically the only animals that would be allowed are assistive animals. Landlords can't prohibit assistive animals. You may want to call the apartment's leasing agent and confirm their policy.
