  • That is insane. I understand the extra pet deposit, but if they are going to have to replace the carpet when you move then I don't see the problem. A monkey, WTF. I wouldn't get a monkey b/c that is now another CHILD that YOU will have to care for.

  • i have never heard of a pet deposit being that much. i thought it was crazy that the place we live in we have to pay a $200 pet deposit

  • Your husband in a GENIUS!!!! LOL

    The carpets where we live were new when we moved in but now they have something to be desired. It gets gross when you have a child constantly puking on them.

  • yea that is what i was saying thats what we pay in rent. i can see maybe an extra 100 or something to put towards the deposit we already paid but 650.00

  • our carpets look like mr kool aid exploded on them lol but they were bad when we moved in

  • $650 is a ridiculous amount for a pet deposit! The most I have ever heard of is $250.

    What about a monkey makes it "Easy to hide?" LOL! And the cost of a monkey, monkey food, vet bills, etc, will end up bing a lot more than a $650 pet deposit anyways!

    so, to answer your question, YES they are crazy!

  • A pet deposit is pretty standard and I have often seen it as a month's rent. A monkey on the other hand is a CRAZY idea! They are wild creatures and not meant to be kept as pets. They often turn out to be biters and are not good around children.

    I fear that new TLC show about people having monkey pets is going to spark a very terrible monkey craze. Don't fall victim! They look cute, but they're terrible pets!

  • That much for a pet deposit is crazy! At our apartments, it is a 75 dollar deposit and that is it. LOL! A monkey! I would love to have a monkey. I would never get on of course but it is a nice thought!
