Living in Japan, you might want to have pets. Almost all people who are living in Japan rent an apartment. Is it easy to have pets at your apartment?
There are a few apartments where you can have pets in Japan
In fact, there are a few apartments where you can have pets in Japan. The apartment owners think “Pets are bad.” They believe pets dirty their rooms and trouble neighbors. So if you look for an apartment where you can have pets, you’ll struggle to find it.
But there aren’t necessarily no apartments. You review your requirements. For instance, the rental fee, the distance from the station, etc. You can find an apartment where you can have pets.
About my experience
Actually, I had looked for an apartment recently. Since I have three cats, I could find only one apartment where I can live with my requirements. I realized that there are few apartments where I can have pets in Japan.
However, apartments that can have pets are increasing. I hope more and more will allow pets. The reason why…
In my opinion
There are so many stray cats in Japan. They’re suffering from hunger, sickness, and summer heat and winter cold everyday.
The feline’s average life expectancy is over 10 years. On the other hand, the stray cat’s average life expectancy is 5 years. This tells us that there is a tough environment surrounding stray cats.
I suppose if apartments that allow pets increase, stray cats will decrease since many people who want to live with cats can have pets at their apartment.
I wish for the happiness of stray cats from the bottom of my heart.
