Hey Tintin, I'm a total lurker but your cat's unbearable cuteness brought me out of obscurity. I have two cats and I'm probably going to try for Mercer or D'Ag (I'm moving w/ my fiance)...
From what I've been reading on TLS (maybe it was on the thread w/the 1L answering questions? I think I just searched TLS for "pets at NYU housing" or something like that), even though NYU's student housing prohibits pets its rarely enforced in the apartments (and private studios, I'm guessing) and lots of people have them, but it would be a problem in the more dorm-style residences (not sure what they meant by that - shared apartments?). I guess that means if you have a private BD in one of the shared apartments you would have to luck out and get placed with other cat lovers? My only concern is a place for the litter box (the smell might overwhelm a smaller studio), and having to cover up some of the furniture they provide so my guys don't tear everything up.
And OMG I am so psyched about NYU!
