D's roommate plans to bring her small pet rabbit to school to live in their room. We have read over all the housing policies and residential contract info. on the university website and found no reference to pet prohibitions. They must exist, of course, but D claims people do have fish and guineas pigs in their dorm rooms. So apparently smaller pets are permitted, or at least unofficially permitted.
Also, since it is a 2-room double, D feels she has less leverage for protest. When D expressed some concern over the bunny, the roommate asserted it was unfair for D to object in advance before there had been a definite problem to complain about. Yes, but it's not like the girl can easily send bunny home by plane if a problem does arise. D can't lie about being allergic to dander, since that topic had been discussed a while ago before D knew of her roommate's intentions. All I can think of is the copious pooping rabbits do and their very smelly food pellets. And if it roams around, the possible chewing damage. And the insects that might be attracted to the food and waste... EEK!
