Apartment Downpayment

Hi my name is Mary.
I am moving 170 miles next week, I just got accepted in an apartment, they are charging me $700 for deposit which $250 of that is for my cat to stay with me. I am having to rent storage place for additional $135. I'm being forced to move from where I've been for 3 years, and I just found out today that I go the apartment and can move in. It won't be ready until the 6th of January, mean while, I have to stay with family while I wait for the apartment to be ready.  I'm 74 years old and live on Social Security. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much.
