Vikki, I don't think you're a crazy cat lady for not being bothered by a litterbox in the bedroom. When we first got the kittens, we had two in the bedroom (very small apartment and that truly was the only place for them). As long as you scoop them daily the smell shouldn't be a problem. Right now I have one in my walk-in closet with all of my work clothes, and so far no one has told me that I smell like kitty litter.
I'm glad you got the Dear Catty thing. I wasn't sure I was thinking straight enough to make it obvious what I was trying to do there.
I'm sure Gui will come away from this unscathed. He's just trying to figure out his place in the different environment, and I'm sure he will adjust soon.
