Read below to get the complete guide to finding a pet-friendly apartment, as well as a list of our properties that allow animals in the Chico area!
Are you PAWndering the idea of getting a pet?
Adding a furry companion to your Chico apartment is a big deal!
It is almost as big as thinking about having a child (we said almost). You have to think through all the ways having a pet will change your life, what to expect, and how to prepare.
When you have a pet, it seems like finding a new place to live is even more difficult than usual because not all rentals in Chico California allow residents to have pets. Because of that, you're required to do even more research to find the right rental that allows your pet to move with you.
We know it can be hard to live in an apartment with a pet. As a pet owner it's important that you have things around the house to keep your little friend entertained.
Toys not only keep your pet entertained but they also give them exercise and keep them from destroying things around your apartment because they're bored.
Below are some ideas to keep your pet busy while living in Chico or Redding apartments.
With the summer heat with us, it is common to have that air conditioning running while you are at home. But what about when you aren’t at home? Do you keep your pets and their livelihood in mind when you walk out that door? Here are a six tips to implement to help your pet stay cooler in your rental while you are away.
1. Keep Air Moving
2. Set the Thermostat
Keeping your apartment clean when you live alone is a simple task. All you have to do is pick up after yourself a little bit each day. While not as simple, it’s still fairly easy to keep your apartment clean with a roommate. Just make sure to talk with them before moving in together about the apartment rules (i.e. pickup after yourself) and schedule cleaning times, like weekends.
Everyone wants an adorable pet that is fluffy and cuddly! They are loyal, offer unconditional love, and always ready to spend time with you. They become a large part of our lives and we can’t imagine living without them.
That’s why if you’re thinking about getting a pet while living in an apartment, or already have a pet and thinking about moving into a new apartment, you need to know about apartment friendly breeds.
Important Note: For Hignell Rentals apartments that accept pets, you are only allowed a dog, cat, fish, or bird and they should weigh 30lbs or under.
Outside of Hignell Rentals, each apartment complex will have their own pet policies. Make sure you talk with the apartment or rental manager before getting a pet to ensure you’ll be able to move in with your pet or get the pet you desire!
Here's a list of just some of the pets that are good for apartment living!
For those of you who live with dogs, you know that having one while in a Chico apartment makes your living situation much more enjoyable, especially during this craziness we call 2020.
This year has been full of back and forth – from working in the office to working from home to going back to working in the office and, for some of us, returning home again. Let’s face it, your dog doesn’t know if you’re coming, going, or staying put anymore.
Now that summertime is in full swing, the heat is here to stay. For folks living in the North State, it's no shock that triple digits will be around for the next few months.
We know how to keep ourselves cool during these high temps, but how do we keep our pet cool?
When living in Chico apartments, it's important to be mindful that you have others living in close proximity and that respectful pet etiquette is necessary. Especially during quarantine!
Having neighbors can be fun as it builds a sense of community and, when quarantine is over, a social benefit for apartment living.
Yet, living so close to others can sometimes be less than desirable, especially when there are unexplained noises coming from above, below, or through your bedroom wall....ahem barking puppy, quiet please!
