Lucky the stuffed kitten
The little stuffed kitten I bought in Salem yesterday is now named "Lucky." Within hours of getting home, my landlady decided a cat would be allowed, and overnight, with that change in rules, I started getting responses. Funny thing about people beyond grad school who are still looking for roommies (ergo, not living with family): a very high percentage are pet people. I'm a pet person myself, but had more or less given up on having a pet in an apartment, as the ferret my roommate had was described as a kind of special circumstance disposition. And if a new roommie's cat is amenable, I may finally get one of my own. (Merlin will undoubtedly turn his nose up at me when I visit Mom smelling like a strange cat, but he'll just have to deal.)

Oh, btw, Chapter Five of Shades (Relocation) is up at SQ.

*cheers* I'm so glad the pet policy got altered and you're getting roommate responses.

Yay! I'm glad that is what it took to have you get calls! And now you can have a cat of your own, which is wonderful!

Oh cool! That's two pieces of really good news. I hope you find yourself a suitable roommate soon.

I hope that you get a room-mate soon now the pet thing has been changed! (I always find that strange; in Britain what you're looking for is called a flat-mate, as room-mate is someone who shares a room, a phenomenon only known to siblings and impoverished first-year undergraduates in halls of residence).

It really should mean that, imho. It's probably because "flat" isn't used often here (it is used, usually to refer to a specific kind of apartment), and "apartmentmate" is too much of a mouthful.
