When Silicon Valley dad Troy Good's 18-year-old daughter went off to college in southern California, he had to figure out what to do with her two cats, Tina and Louise, who weren't permitted to stay at Good's apartment. That problem was soon solved by Good's buddy, David Callisch, who agreed to rent a mother-in-law studio attached to his house to the cats--and the cats alone--for $1,500 a month. "I’ve got two renters that don’t have opposable thumbs,” Callisch tells The Mercury News. "They're very quiet, obviously. The only problem is they stink up the place." An area homelessness advocate calls the cat-partment "peak Silicon Valley," adding, "While this story is funny, it really does highlight the tremendous inequity in the Silicon Valley. We have thousands of people on our streets, and we’re paying to make sure that our cats have a place to live."
