Aftermath, Algebra, Apology and Awards

OK! Here we are! It was hard work after such a mega pawty, but when I eventually came to got The Staff out of bed, we counted up all the comments on Blogger and Facebook and the total number of comments was 82.

So we've looked in our wallets and piggy banks and checked down the back of the sofa and we have managed to cough up £41, two cat toys and a fluffy throat lozenge. We had to apply some algebra and this is how we reached our final figure:

82 × 50 ≍ w + pb + 2ct - ftl = (41 + 2ct)

Simples!?  So many thanks to everyone who took the time to come and wish me a happy birthday. £41 and 2 cat toys go to Freshfields. Your participation counts :) 


I do believe I need to upbraid and then possibly upgrade my Staff Person. Ages ago I won a contest at Mr Puddy's, but I didn't know this as she kept it from me! The prize she chose was a specially designed birthday card for me!

Isn't it great! I love the little sheep dancing :)
Thank you so much Mr Poot, you are one of my oldest buddies and I can only apologise for the complete lack of office skills and manners on the part of my menial!


It has also come to my notice this very same menial has been accepting awards on my behalf and then stockpiling them "somewhere safe" and consequently forgetting about them!!  This is unacceptable! So she has been duly chastised (she was shown the Rump of Retribution) and will now try to rectify before she is upbraided and upgraded.

We are indeed honoured to receive:

There are rules attached to these awards and again I had to apply some algebra to solve the math involved

x = 5 x 11 + 7 - y²

However, I am guessing, that even if you've managed to read this far, you've probably just about lost the will to live! The main thing is I have linked back to the kind people who awarded us, so now all I am going to do is thank everyone very much and go and see about a replacement menial.

    I love your math skills. Mom nor I are able to count on our fingers and toesies. We rely on others kindnesses. (KATIE! She forced me to write that, There is a claw at my back).

    But as I was saying Austin, I find your math skills exciting. I will tell you what I will do. I will show you MY bikini if you show me yours again. Don't mention this to anyone however. They make get the wrong idea. XXOO

  14. Austin, Sassy here. Great news on the donation. Now about you seeing another cat's biniki......

  15. That is one awesome donation, Austin. And you've got some cool awards there. Congrats.

  16. Sheesh, Austin, Pal. You've gona all ADHD on me, Buddy! Really generous of your Mom to make such a nice donation in honor of your Birfday.

    Say, Austin, since you sought out my counsel on the topic: I think a little less Katie Bikini and a little more attention to Sassy's beauteous floofy gray furs would be a mighty fine idea right about now.

  17. We is so sorry we missed your birthday! Our human has been bad, bad, bad about taking us to visit our friends!! We need to find a more helpful one.

    So here we is wishing you a belated Happy Birthday!! How old is you now? We hope you had a wonderful day and that your human gave you lots of yummy noms and loves.

    Congratulations on your awards!

  18. I like your kind of math, Austin.
    Makes complete sense to me...though Glogirly is still scratching her head.

    What a wonderful gift for Freshfields!!!
    You have a beautiful and giving heart.

    Now onto menial replacement.
    ; ) Katie

  20. Whoohooo on your donation Austin, our staff have stock piled our awards too..BOL Have a wonderful rainy day xxooxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  21. Austin - my buddy - LOOKIT all those awards! Concatulations all over the place...couldn't happen to a nicer friend....and that special card you got is a real "wowzer". You know, good staff is hard to find so you might want to consider just a bit of "retraining" of your current help there rather than searching all over again for replacements. It's the KIND thing to do - humans are (after all) only HUMAN.

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  22. Well, the menial means well ...

    And MomKatt says SHE tries to avoid "Beforemath". Much less "Aftermath"! ROFL

    Sexii purrz,

  23. Concats on your awards - Mum always tries to hide ours under lots of papers as she's generally forgotten who sent them to us and is too ashamed to ask us if we can remember for her!
