A Glendale, Arizona tenant reportedly paid her rent on time and didn't bother her neighbors. But it was her efforts to help feral cats that have given her landlord justification under the lease to order her to move out.
Since she moved into her apartment in July 2009, the tenant has put food and water outside her apartment to help eight neighborhood cats. Although her city doesn't ban the feeding of feral cats, the tenant's apartment complex is one of many in the area that does, citing health and safety concerns of fellow tenants, according to a report from The Arizona Republic.
After reportedly giving the tenant warnings, the landlord finally told her to vacate by this past Thursday.
Do you think a rule barring tenants from feeding feral cats is important for health and safety reasons? Or should a tenant be allowed to put out food and water if she wishes?
