Best Pets for Apartment Living
Pets do more than pose for funny online videos. They provide companionship and fun. But before you run out and buy the first pet you see, consider finding one of the best pets for apartments.
As many as one in three households own a dog, but these furry friends often need plenty of space to run, and their barking is disturbing to other renters. If you’re a dog person, consider a pug. They’re quiet and don’t need much exercise.
Felines are small and quiet with no cage requirements. As long as you have room for a litter box, cats make good apartment pets.
Watching fish swim for just a few minutes can reduce stress, according to pets.webmd.com. That’s as good a reason as any to have fish for pets! Plus, you only need a small aquarium.
Feathered pets sing and chatter all day. They love attention, but they can be too noisy for some neighbors. They also may require bulky cages that take up precious space in your apartment.
Hamsters, guinea pigs & rats
While these friendly rodents may get a bad reputation, small and quiet, a hamster requires little space. They are nocturnal, though, so they only make good apartment pets if your hamster’s nighttime noises won’t wake you or the neighbors.
Guinea pigs love human attention, and they thrive in pairs. You’ll need at least a four square foot cage to house your guinea pigs pets.
Social animals, rats live best in pairs too. They need a cage that’s at least two square foot, according to the ASPCA, and you’ll need plenty of free time to play with your rats.
Most property managers won’t approve poisonous snakes, but non-poisonous snakes make for quiet companions. You will need a locking cage that’s large enough for an adult snake to stretch out to two-thirds of its length. That means a six-foot long adult snake will need a four-foot long cage. (Center Square Towers does not permit snakes or any other exotic animals.)
Compact, hermit crabs need only a small aquarium filled with spare shells, water dishes and climbing toys. You can’t cuddle a hermit crab, but it doesn’t require much interaction or space.
Look at your lease
You might have your heart set on pet ownership, but check your lease before you bring a pet home. It will outline the type, number and size of pets you can have, and it will list any annual pet ownership fees.
You will want to follow the lease, even if that means you can’t adopt a pet pig or a golden retriever. You can always get your pet fix as a volunteer at a local animal shelter or as a pet sitter for coworkers and friends.
If your lease does allow pets, decide which pet is right for you. Then have fun with your new furry friend!

We were very lucky that the Blizzard did not a bigger or more devastating impact by causing any power outages. But if it had, we would have been ready for it. Prior to the Storm, our Community Manager had sent out a notice to all Residents informing them of the protocol should the property loose power. In response to this notice, one of our Residents was kind enough to share with us her appreciation for our preparedness and had gone as far as sending a copy of her letter of appreciation to The Intelligencer Newspaper. This is what she wrote:
“Good work during the storm; Posted Tuesday, February 2, 2016
I would like to extend my appreciation to Zencorr and all of its associates and the staff of Center Square Towers for the exemplary care they provided during the recent snowstorm.
Each of us was informed of the detailed preparations, especially in case of a power outage.
Center Square Towers is now an apartment complex for all ages, so it certainly gave us and our families and friends peach of mind.
Another note of gratitude: Because the driveway was accessible by Sunday morning, Paul Mulholland was able to deliver my Intelligence. Thank you, Paul”
Esther Welch-Doylestown, PA

Avoid Becoming A Victim of a Faceless Crime!
According to the Experian credit bureau, there are two types of identity theft are rising faster than any others: those involving tax returns and medical care. These types of identity theft tend to target seniors more than any other groups. Why? Seniors tend to have great credit history. An identity thief would rather steal the identity of someone who is credit worthy than someone who is not. A senior’s application is more likely to be approved, making it very attractive for a thief to steal. Seniors are also less likely to monitor their credit history and credit reports because they not applying for auto loans, mortgages and store credit cards at this stage in their life.
How can a senior protect themselves from becoming victims of identity theft? Here are some helpful tips:
- Avoid calls about your personal information. Anyone calling about your personal information should be considered suspicious. This includes questions about your finances and medical information, too. What do you do? Hang up on them. Your are not being rude! You are only protecting yourself.
- Monitor your credit report. You can get a free credit report from each of the credit bureaus each year. Mark it on your calendar to remind you to do this annual chore. Visit www.annualcreditreport.com and remember that the reports are absolutely free to you.
- Don’t carry more than you need. Leave your Social Security card, Medicare card, extra credit cards, and financial information at home. Secure them in a locked security box and place it in a secured spot in your home.
- Establish a go-to-person. One’s health condition can change very quickly. It is important to have someone you know and trust with whom you can leave or tell the location of your important documents should you ever find yourself in the care of a hospital or rehab facility.
- Cyber Security. Make sure your computer is secured with antivirus and firewall software. It is also important to not share your passwords with a stranger. Keep your passwords unique and change them on a regular basis. If at all possible, stay away from using public computers to do your Online Banking. If you do not clear the computer’s memory, someone could access the information from your last session.
- Dispose of information properly. Another way identity thieves get your information is from your trash. By shredding any unwanted documents before throwing them away will deter anyone from learning your personal information. A paper shredder is an inexpensive anti-identity theft device.
Identity Theft can happen to anyone at any age. These helpful steps can be appreciated by everyone at any age. Do your part to avoid becoming a victim of this faceless type of crime.
