.. is that I can feel them crawling on me even though we’re 90% certain they’re not at this one.
I can’t sleep right now for fear of them crawling on me and drinking my blood. I feel every itch, every hair movement. That dark freckle on the side of my knee looks like a bug from up here. So does that black spot in front of the bathroom.
Why did we get a dark purple color for our bed sheets? Are they nesting behind the molding? Will they nest in the new bed frame? When we were sleeping on the rug for three or four days, did we let them build a new home there? Are a million tiny little eggs going to hatch from the rug? The wall? The old pillows? Our electronics that we steam cleaned?
I haven’t seen them. I haven’t seen their poop, or any out of place blood stains. There have been none of the tell-tale bite marks after sleeping. Sarah had one after we went to the other place to get some work done there, but that’s it.
Pinto is just licking the floor, not trying to eat a bug. Sarah doesn’t seem the least bit upset.
It might help if I wasn’t the one sleeping so close to the wall.
I bet it’s really hard to see a tiny, dark red bug on a dark purple mattress cover.
It’s going to be months before I feel safe and comfortable again.
Why do I have a dark freckle on my foot, too?
Well, the bed looks fine save for some cat hair, Sarah, and Pinto who just came over to tell me to go to sleep. I feel a little more comfortable that he checked out my side of the bed then came back to rub me, as if to say that everything is fine. Also, if he saw something, his being a cat wouldn’t let him ignore it.
Kinda wish my cat would do this sort of thing for me. Instead he’s just falling asleep on top of the placeware cabinet I built earlier today.
Though at this point, aren’t the cats ours, not mine and hers? Funny how one’s views on ownership change after becoming engaged.
