rabbit in apt.

Posted by J. Stenzel on September 18, 1996 at 14:38:16:

I live in an apartment building that does not allow dogs,
but does allow cats. The lease is the standard NY lease which
says "no pets," but the management assured me when I moved in that
cats were OK. Since that time, I've gotten involved with people
who take rabbits in from shelters, have them neutered, litter-train
them, and find homes for them. I very much want to adopt one of these
rabbits. Trying to do the right thing, I asked my landlord first, although
I hardly thought it would be a problem since they allow cats, and the
rabbit would be in a cage unless supervised (AND it would be litter-trained).
But the answer was NO. When I asked why, after explaining everything,
the answer was they "don't want it to turn into a menagerie." I find
this reasoning to not make sense. Is there anything I can do? If I
go ahead and get one of these homeless rabbits, could they throw me out?
Thanks for any leads.
