I adored this story. There are so many elements at play. Malcolm's unreasonable fear of mice, with Jon trying to reassure him, and finding a common element with Malcolm in his own fear of cockroaches. The obvious, easy affection they have with each other. Malcolm's seemingly logical responses -- strategic advantage of being on top of the table! And somehow, if they had a cat, it just had to be named Soval! Perfect. I could see this incident happening of Jon and Malcolm were in a relationship.
