earlier, when i was in the bathroom, sai sai came in, as he does, and got into the bathtub. at first he played around, attacking the curves in the bottom of the tub and rubbing against the faucet, but as i washed my hands and dried them, he sat down in the tub. and then stubbornly refused to get out of the tub. doc was asleep, so i didn't want to turn the water on, besides, i try to avoid anything that will make simon more neurotic. finally i went over and picked him up, which he hates, and put him outside the bathroom and shut the door.
i put him down and he hissed at me, twice. and i said in a whisper, "now you stop that attitude," and he turned around and came back to me and cuddled my legs. he is so fucking cute! and smart! he and felix definitely have a jealousy thing going on. twice now, felix has tried to get up with me to sleep only to find simon under the covers. and the bathroom is simon's room to be with me. he attacks anyone he catches going in there and chases any cats out that wander in there. and poor hapless felix tried to harmlessly come into the bathroom with me today. sai sai pounced him and chased him into the mud room.
somehow i will get them to understand they can share me. there's more than enough room on the bed or the couch for both of them, there is no need to fight. felix likes to be my teddy bear, simon likes to sleep on my legs. there should be no problem. maybe i'll have felix only nights, where i shut the door and let simon sleep on the couch and keep felix in with me. and hope he doesn't pee on me in protest.
half an hour til dawn. it hasn't started to get light yet. it is getting colder, though. i don't like that. maybe doc is right, maybe i will go back to bed. he got into a shouting match with himself (because i wouldn't answer back, i just watched him) over my sleeping and waking habits. i'm getting tired of him harping on them. when his schedule changes, he'll shut up about it for a while, though. i'm finally getting enough sleep, so what if it's broken up? not as ideal as a long night's sleep like he gets, but better than nothing.
i have to go check out a burning smell now.
