I had managed to convince my parents to help me get into an apartment after a while. I had money saved up from working, and my roommate was going to move with me, which made them feel better. That at least I would have someone else around if I needed help.
I was so glad that they co-signed for me, and the same day in March that we moved in, I got all excited and rushed out and found the cutest little kitty I could. I named him Figaro, and he officially became my first Apartment Cat.
