"PET" Peeves

It has long been proven FACT that pets offer love, companionship, comfort and a feeling of being wanted / needed. Yet, daily, adverts for houses or apartments for rent claim 'pets not permitted'. I'd love to obtain some feedback on this pool concerning that issue, please...
Are you a pet owner?
Yes
No
Do you like pets?
Absolutely YES
NO! I can't stand them.
I don't mind them, but couldn't care less if I owned any.
Assuming you have a pet, what kind of pet is it?
Dog
Cat
Bird
Rabbit
Gerbil
Turtle
Fish
Other (as in Tarantula, snake, whatever!)
Do you have more than one pet?
Yes
No
Do you rent your dwelling place?
Yes
No
Does your landlord / landlady allow pets?
Yes
No
Assuming your response to the previous question was 'Yes' -- are you permitted to have only a cat, no dogs?
Yes
No
Still on the same vein, are you permitted to have a dog, but no cat?
Yes
No
Are you forced to have only 'small' pets?
Yes
No
Do you believe it's fair to say in a rental advert: "ABSLOLUTELY NO PETS" ?
Yes
No
Unsure
Should a landlord be compelled to permit a pet if that pet is a sole companion for a tenant?
Yes, absolutely.
No, not at all.
Unsure
When a pet dies, should a tenant ask the permission of the landlord before getting another pet?
Yes
No
Unsure
If you own your own place, do you believe a beloved pet should be allowed burial in your yard?
ABSOLUTELY ! Why not? They were a well loved part of the family.
NO WAY! They were only an animal.
Unsure
Do you think the government places too many restrictions on pets and pet owners?
Abso-BLOODY-lutely, YES.
No, not really.
Unsure
Many adds contain the phrase 'no pets allowed' . Do you think that ads should also be allowed to specify 'no children' as well?
Yes. Often, kids do more damage to a rental property than a pet ANY day!
No. Children should come first.
Unsure
Some people own cats merely for 'mousers' in the rental or owned cottage for the summer months. Do you think these individuals are justified in leaving the cat to fend for itself when they leave the cottage?
Yes-- the cat can catch wild mice to survive.
NO-- the cat is accustomed to the people and deserves to go back home with them.
Unsure
Do you think pet owners who simply abandon their cats at the end of the cottaging season should be charged with animal neglect/cruelty/abuse?
ABSOLUTELY YES
No
Unsure, considering it's hard to prove who owned the pet that was left behind.
