Folks, I don't live in California - but I've always been advised that small caged animals and birds are not "pets". Only dogs and cats are - and often not cats.
A bird isn't even an animal. Animals are mammalian.

I wouldn't hurt to consult a tenants' rights group or service in your city.

Mammals are one of the six main classes of animals.

Yup, there are housing entities that are rather medieval. Condominiums are one. M.U.D.'s are another. M.U.D.'s are some kind of substandard Texas municipality that exists for the sake of providing no services, but rather telling residents how to live.
I don't know if it's really confined to Texas, but here land isn't necessarily organized into townships so if no village or city then the county government is all there is - and in Texas county governments really aren't worth much.
On consulting an attorney, in many American cities the local bar associations have programs where you can consult with an attorney for $20 for a half hour or something. But I'd seriously check with tenants' rights groups - they're more likely to have the knowledge.

At risk of being kicked off newsnet -
Why do you think YOU'RE entitled to have a bird?
Honestly, I don't believe somebody had the nerve to say something like this!

Perhaps you and our inquirer could switch residences. It sounds like you're cut out for hers.

It's a condo, not an apartment. He's not a tenant, but a co-owner. X-No-Archive: yes

If there was a "no pets" clause when he bought the condo, and he signed the contract containing the "no pets" clause, then why would he think he can have a pet? Others in the building signed that contract with the assurance that there would be no pets in the building.

If, however, it's a new ordinance, he may have a case.

As for the comment that a cat isn't even considered a pet..??
I just hope there will be enough room for when *I* move over with my menagerie :0)
