I totally understand. I wasn't trying to insult you. When you said, "You just don't tell them you have any pets," I assumed you meant that I should lie, considering the rental applications have you state yes or no to the question 'do you have any pets?' I understand why you do that but I cannot. If they do ever have to fix something, I'm not going to be able to hide them off site when they'll get there in 15 minutes, you know. I appreciate your advice though.

nktigger99 Most landlords aren't jerks...if you are honest and talk to them they usually will work with you. We are landlords due to the crappy housing market....we can't afford to have a house on the market for months while paying two mortgages....maybe try to find someone like that.

Which is why I was asking here about housing. I don't want to be the person who lies to the landlord. Besides, it's too big of a risk, imo.

If/when they do, you can just put away all signs of pets, and while the repair work is being done, just take your pets in a vehicle and go out for the day, or hide them in rooms the repairman doens't need to access. If you have barking dogs, then yeah, drive them to a park for a few hours, and hide their water and food bowls, cat litter boxes, etc. We are living in a place now that only allows for 2 pets, and we have 5 cats, 4 big dogs, and 3 kiddos. Ha! Good luck.

Oh, and we are in the process of closing on our house in SE Portland (Mount Scott near the Clackamas Town Center) in the next week or so. If anything falls through and we're forced to rent it out, I could always contact you. It has nearly .5 acre fenced-in back yard that backs up to acres of forest of the Willamette National Cemetery. Nice view of Mt. Saint Helens from the kitchen window and wrap around porch.
Wow! Yes. Let me know!

SummerGSDLover I thought about taking pictures of our current house (all rooms) to show prospective landlords but Idk. That way they can see there was no damage done and I keep it clean.

SummerGSDLover How do you keep 8 pets a secret?

Zeeva I don't suggest it...but I kept my pets a secret from the landlord. It was just too difficult finding a place that allowed 8 pets...and I couldn't rehome that many or take them to the shelter...

Hoping things work out for you...
