It's partly tough because I'm in Boston now (could be worse, I could be on the west coast) and still working, so going down to see places is complicated. My hope in finding a roommate is a better neighborhood for less money... so, we'll see. I adore my cats and am not to be parted with them, but they do make the housing search trickier.
Anyway, I'm glad for you that you got your sitch straightened out. For my part, I shall persevere.
I don't know much about Brooklyn, but my ex got a very reasonably priced studio apartment in Queens, in the Jackson Heights area, which I think is a good area (it has its sketchy parts, but same goes for many other areas). She found it really quickly too. The building management didn't mind if tenants had cats, and I even saw tenants with small dogs. I think you'll be able to find an apartment, even if it will be very last minute. It should also be feasible to find an apartment where you'll be able to be with your cats and not have any issues.
