Finding a roommate

Dogs are like kids. Cats are like roommates.
~Oliver Gaspirtz, A Treasury of Pet Humor

It’s not easy finding a new roommate, but it is well worth the effort. Depending on who you are who you’re with, a roommate can be your best friend who throws you a surprise birthday party, or can be the person who puts the thermostat way too high.

IGSA can’t find a roommate for you – you’ve got to do that yourself. We can however, give you a place to start looking. Why don’t you post a query on our Facebook group and roll the dice?
