I'm going to grad school in NYC in August, and I still haven't found a place to stay but I'm hoping to stay a few days somewhere temporarily to look around for a place to live, check out neighborhoods, and then sign a lease/move in.

The problem is that I have a cat and I don't know any places might allow furry friends. Sure, I could leave him with my boyfriend for a few months and ask him to bring him later on, but I'm trying to see if I can do it when I move in August. I don't really want my boyfriend dealing with the hassle of taking the cat with him on the plane - I'd rather do it myself.

I did find some small condos (mini hotels?) people rent out for vacationers for a few days, which are cheaper than hotels, but I'm pretty sure they don't allow pets. Should I just try craigslist for a week sublet/rent deal? Can anyone tell me if they know better options for temporary stays (with or without pets)?

Maybe you can find a pet hotel in NYC for a week or so. I know my boss has a place where she boards her dogs when she goes on vacation, so I wouldn't be surprised if there's a place you can leave your cat for a week or two while you search.
