First I'll work out the order of the animals. Listing them from floor 1 to 7, we know that we start with something that is not a cat, there are two cat-dog blocks, and we end with a parrot on floor 7. This means we have one of three possibilities:

 1234567
 .CDCD.P
 .CD.CDP
 ..CDCDP
But floor 5 is not a cat so only the first option works. There must be a dog that is not adjacent to a cat, so that gives:
 1234567
 PCDCDDP
Now lets turn to the people. Some are deduced directly:
 1234567
 PCDCDDP
 T...QR.
Now P also only has one possibility as there is only one dog left:
 1234567
 PCDCDDP
 T.P.QR.
Now so does V, as there is only one cat not below P:
 1234567
 PCDCDDP
 T.PVQR.
S does not have a cat, which completes the puzzle:
 1234567
 PCDCDDP
 TUPVQRS

According to 4 and 6, T can't have a cat. He/she doesn't own a dog either, so a parrot is the only possibility.

Based on 6 and 8, R is the only dog owner who doesn't live immediately above a cat owner.

Given 3, 6 and 7, V lives above P, there's a dog owner living immediately above V, and being one of the dog owners other than R, P has a cat owner living immediately below him/her. Combining that with 2 and 5, this means none of the four lives on the lowermost or top floors. Since Q is on the 5th floor, V lives on the 4th floor and P on the 3rd, making Q a dog owner, R the 6th-floor dweller, and the one living on the lowest floor a parrot owner. T can only be the latter and S must be living on the top floor.

In short:

T - parrot, U - cat, P - dog, V - cat, Q - dog, R - dog, S - parrot (bottom to top)
