DC Craigslist - Please sublet my apartment while I attend the Danish Cat Convention

So I recently completed a horrid search for a DC summer sublet. In an effort to understand why it was so hard to find a place, I decided to place an ad for an apartment of my own:

$900 in Dupont is a good deal, but I figured the 16 cats would be quite the deterrent. Apparently I was wrong. Responses started trickling in; many seemed quite determined:

Apparently Cousin Garth wasn't a deal-breaker either, but I didn't want to lead her on in case she really thought this was going to work out:

I'm not sure that follows logically, but I'll let her have it.

Some other interesting responses:

people are really getting clever with their one-liner salutations

?? - no. 

Apparently the ad caught on, as the posting made DCist, and the responses have been flooding in since then. And for the doubters out there, the Danish Cat Convention is a real thing. Maybe I should submit an application for the Catinental Congress to attend. And thanks again, Craigslist Users, for providing so much entertainment.
