I am sorry to hear this.

Where is the building located?

Do you have a written lease or rental agreement? If so, does it say anything about pets?

What if any notice did they give you that they wanted to limit the number of cats you can have?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
