I interrupt this regularly scheduled infertility blog...

I am sitting here trying to patiently await the call from the nurse to get our fertilization report.  I am not sure what time they usually call.  But, I can't wait to hear!  I am really excited!  My husband was really excited this morning too.  He said that he hoped he could concentrate on church and not think about what we'd hear.  I tend to dwell on things so I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep thinking about everything that happened and that annoying anesthetist.  But, every time I realized I was getting all tense, I would just pray. 

I thought I would share with you all our sweet furkids while I wait.  They are really the most purr-fect cats ever!  I have our two boys sitting on either side of me right now as I type.  We have had them since June of 2005.  They were about 12 weeks old when we got them; they are from the same litter.  They are the sweetest, smartest cats ever.  Maxwell is our sleek, solid black cat.  He is like a panther, a natural-born killer and so beautiful.  He is so loving and definitely a mama's boy.  He likes for me to lean over when I pet him so that my hair falls down and he walks through my hair and sniffs it.  Sometimes he'll be purring while he's sniffing it and his mouth comes open and it's just so loud.  I think it's really sweet.  Sampson is the typical fat cat.  I call him our Kliban cat.  He is black and white and some of the pads on his toes are pink and some are black.  I think that's so cute.  He's so laid back and LOVES to be brushed.  So much so that when he's around, we have to spell the word or he starts meowing adamantly.  Also, we have a brush on the side of our tub for them and while you're petting him he walks over to it, sniffs it, then turns and looks at you.  It really is heart-melting.  Sampson and Maxwell are huge cats.  They each weight just under 15 pounds and they aren't overweight.  They are really well-behaved.  We have tons of bird feeders and chairs close to the windows so the cats can watch birds when they are tired of playing with the gajillion toys we have provided for them.  They have never really caused a lot of havoc - not even with our Christmas tree.  They do like to steal flash drives and hide them though.

Along comes Mathilda.  My husband's boss found her as a teeny tiny kitten under a bush in the snow this past January.  One girl took her home but couldn't keep her so she kept bringing her back to work and of course my husband fell under her spell.  She really was a beautiful kitten - hard to resist.  She has turned our world upside down.  She is hyper and crazy.  Just a ball of energy.  The boys usually go crazy and run like wild-cats for about 15-30 minutes around 9pm each night.  Mathilda is just non-stop.  But, when she sleeps, she sleeps and when she wants attention, she gets it.  We all love her, even the boys.

Now that I have bored you with talk about our kitties, I will steal your heart with pictures of them and all their beautiful adorableness.
