Tina and Louise are lucky — in the overheated housing market of Silicon Valley, they found a studio for $1,500 a month.
Yes, it’s only 400 square feet. And yes, there’s no kitchen. But they don’t need much room and neither can cook.
Tina and Louise are house cats.
The furry felines are the pets of a young woman named Victoria Amith, who went off to college only to discover that her dorm doesn’t allow animals.
Her father, Troy Good, couldn’t house the cats as he had other pet problems — his fiancee has a dog, and the cats were felina-non grata at her house.
Who would take the cats?
David Callisch, a friend of Troy Good’s, agreed to rent the studio apartment behind his house to Tina and Louise. As he told mercurynews.com, they are decent tenants. “The only problem is they stink up the place.”
