A Landlord Is Renting Out A Home To Two Cats

It's been dubbed the 'kitty crib'.

David Callisch owns a 425-square-foot studio apartment in San Jose, California and said he couldn't be happier with his two new tenants.

"They don't drink,"  he told ABC 7 News. "They don't smoke, they don't play loud music."

The fancy felines actually belong to a good friend's daughter.

Victoria Amith, 18, left for college but tough dorm rules meant she had to leave her cats behind. 

Unable to stay with the teenager's father, Troy Good, because they clashed with his dog, he turned to Callisch.

Instead of renting the property out on Airbnb, Callisch allowed the girls to stay for $US1,500 a month ($AU2,084). It's a steal considering the average studio apartment in the area rents out for around $US1,900 ($AU2,640)

It's a quirky place fitted with a cat tree. While there's no kitchen, there's a sink and plenty of storage space for kibble.

While the lovable kitties have free range of the place most of the time, Amith and Good often visit to keep them company.

Callisch confirmed it's not a long term solution but said it was a good arrangement in the meantime.

"This wasn't my life long vision or dream to have cats as tenants," he said. "It just worked out that way."

It seems not everyone is a fan of the Kitty Crib, it's copped a lot of criticism on social media with many locals claiming it was irresponsible considering the current housing crisis gripping the area.

But for now, it seems the cats will continue to live their new quiet and relaxed life.
