What’s the best pet to get for Orlando apartments?

Now I am not trying to start a debate over which animal is better in this article, only which animal might be the best for whichever of the Orlando apartments you are considering living in. So cat lovers and dog lovers alike can calm down.

Orlando apartments that allow pets can vary. Some complexes only allow aquariums and cats, while others also allow dogs. The types of dogs allowed can differ depending on which of the apartments in Orlando you are looking at, as some complexes do have limitations. These limitations are mostly based on size, as some Orlando apartments simply cannot accommodate really large animals. So, make sure to keep that in mind.

Aside from size being an issue, there really are no other limitations on what kind of fish, cat, or dog you can bring into pet-friendly Orlando apartments. So, what pet is the best to have when living in an apartment? Well, that is mostly going to depend on which of the Orlando apartments you are looking at moving into.

Dogs need a lot of space to move around, which can be a problem in some apartments in Orlando. If you aren't planning on moving into one of the Orlando apartments with a lot of square footage, then you may want to reconsider your choice of animal. There are some smaller Orlando apartments that may work with having a dog, but that is only because residents have access to their own yard. If the animal has plenty of space to run around the outside, having a large amount of space inside won't be as much of an issue.

Cats don't really have an issue with space, but that is not to say that they don't have their own preferences. Orlando apartments with lots of places to climb are best suited for your cat. Cats do not like being limited to the ground, and tend to feel more threatened if they do not have a place to escape to. However, you can compensate for this if you are moving into one of the Orlando apartments that doesn't have many climbing options by installing your own shelving or buying a cat-tower.

You may also want to consider looking at Orlando apartments that have wood floors if you really want a cat. Cats have a nasty habit of digging their claws into fabrics, especially carpet. If you don't want to end up paying for any potential damages caused by your cat, I suggest moving somewhere with wood floors. In addition, if you are going to live in one of the Orlando apartments that is furnished, make sure that you have plenty of scratching posts so that they do not damage the complex's furniture.

As for fish, well fish do not really have any special requirements. As long as you have a desk to set them on and water to put them in, you really shouldn't have any issue in whichever of the Orlando apartments you decide to live in. So really, fish can live just about anywhere.

In the end, the best pet to bring with you into Orlando apartments should vary based on what type of apartment you are moving into. However, the pet you end up getting should really be based off your preferences, and hopefully in choosing your apartment options you will take your animal's lifestyle into consideration as well as your own.
