moving with pets

My parents just bought a house in North Carolina and will be moving there by the end of the month. I'm staying here in California, where I've lived my whole life. I'll be getting an apartment here and my mom thinks it would be best if I took the cats with me. We have 2 cats, both are 17 years old from the same litter. We got them when they were kittens, so they've been around forever.

We have a huge backyard here. They are constantly going in and out of the house. Since they're so old and so used to being able to go outside, will they be able to adapt to living in a small apartment? I wouldn't even be able to let them out on the balcony because they would have no trouble jumping off the side. I'm just worried that they're not going to make it. And they are trained to use a litter box so that's not a problem.

Also, how hard would it be to just sneak them in without the apartment office people knowing? Can I get away with it? $300 deposit plus $40 a month 'pet rent' is just too much.
