Very tired today. I bought an "Extreme Speed Stack" energy drink (10 calories) from my gym because I knew it would help me more that my diet Rock Star drink. I struggled through 1 hour of upper body weights. My butt is a bit sore from yesterday's workout, but not nearly as bad as last week so I decided to do my treadmill run. I covered 2.9 miles in 30 minutes, and then collapsed in the stretching area. It was a real strain today to get through all 30 minutes. I walked to work from the train station (another 30 minutes).

There are two reasons I'm tired: 1) getting to bed at the same time, but having to get up 30 minutes earlier, and 2) the cats.

Abby is causing major problems. First she woke me up at 3:30 a.m. yowling at something outside, probably another cat. I sprayed her with the spray bottle to get her out of the window. At 5:30 a.m. I was awakened again. Abby outright attacked Xena - this was no play fighting; this was an all out cat WAR. Xena finally hid under the tub and successfully got away. I shut the bathroom door for the night so I could get some sleep.

When I got up I found Abby had gotten the worst of the fight - she had a bloody ear and there were small drops of blood on the bathroom floor. Xena had a very minor cut above one eye. I'm definitely not going to get Xena's claws cut right now - she needs them to defend herself.

When I left this morning Xena was hissing and growing whenever Abby came into the bathroom. The litter box is in there so I uncovered the box and placed the cover and the stereo between the litter box and bathtub in the hopes that Xena will allow Abby to use the box if her view is blocked.

I really sorry Xena and Abby are having trouble adjusting to your new place. Cats are more sensitive than people give them credit for. Hopefully a little time will help. Best of luck and I hope you get more sleep.
