Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
Chris' vacation starts the 29th. We were hoping to make it to the outerbanks NC this year, but it doesn't look like it's happening.
So we decided to move the crates into the living room that week and see how it goes. My biggest concern is Blue. Unlike Wellie, who doesn't care at all where he sleeps, Blue's a mamas boy that needs to be near me. I won't sleep on the floor with him though, he's two years old and there's nothing scary in the living room..lol..
Fingers crossed after a few nights he'll calm down. But considering his delicate mental state (he's paranoid and scared of everything), I don't see this ending well..
