I'm being threatened by my landlord for an eviction because

Customer Question

I'm being threatened by my landlord for an eviction because I have a cat. I pay my rent two weeks before it's due every month. My question is: would a judge grant an eviction even though I always pay my rent before it is due?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: California
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: No issues. I keep my unit clean. I even keep the community laundry room and outdoor sidewalks clean. I go above and beyond my responsibilities on maintenance.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I've had a cat for the full 4 1/2 years I've lived here and they always knew it. So I don't understand why now they are giving me notice.
