So I've been thinking about getting a cat. That means I had to dig out my lease to read the fine print.

I live in a "no pet" building, but all my lease states is that all pets must be approved by the landlord and may be subject to an additional lease fee.

Okay, so my question that I will pose to my therapist tomorrow (and possibly my psychiatrist when I see him next month) is, does severe depression constitute a medical need for an animal companion?

I don't want to move. I love where I live. Heated underground parking is an anemity I have learned to love a great deal living in the frigid north.

Any thoughts?
