We had both indoor and outdoor cats when we moved in. Some of us believed that 
we had an agreement that there would be no more outdoor cats. But people were 
not being told that by owners and people moved in with them.

We finally got a pet policy that grandfathered in the current outdoor cats and 
prohibited any more.

Grandfathering is a great way to get policies changed. No one wants to get rid 
of their cats. 

One persuasive argument was that outdoor cats live significantly shorter lives 
than indoor cats. "If you love your cats so much why do you want them outside?” 
Argument by an indoor cat person. (not me).
