Number Crunching

Bloggie friends!

I’d like to think that maybe the reason why I’m a teensy weensy little tiny itty bitty kitty committee ok with using words to create silly stories and bad poetry is because I’m completely pants at maths!

Last week, I didn’t turn 44, I turned 43! My mum was most relieved. LOL!

Oh but there’s no denying that on the 20th July, poor Charlie will have all his teeth removed. :-( And hopefully beat this calici virus.



Thanks to beautiful Kim of Fuzzy tales and amazing Ann of Zoolatry and to all of CB for the above badge and purrs.

I’ll be offline today (Monday) but hopefully will catch up with all of you asap but given Charlie’s surgery too, please forgive me if I’m a little sporadic in my commenting as well.

p.s. Lovely Helena of Becoming Layla! I can’t get into your blog – hope you are ok!

Peace and love!

Poor Charlie! Soft foods from now on. Ouch! I hope he forgives you. But cats are notoriously forgiving of those they love.

Charlie is in my prayers ... and you, too, Roland

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Oh! Prayers for Charlie, Kitty.

Mark said...

I really hope Charlie can beat his nasty illness, and gets on okay without his teeth. I've never heard of a cat having teeth removed actually.

Katie Isabella said...

I am VERY much purring and praying for dearest Cahrlie during and after his surgery. Kisses and loves and snuggles dearest Charlie. I may be way over here but my heart is right there with you. xoxoxoxox

klahanie said...

I'm rather good at maths. I can add up totals really quickly. I um, 'hasten to add'! :)
Glad you sorted out your birth year, much to your mother's relief.
Hope all will be well with Charlie.
All the best,
Gary

Poor Charlie! I hope this fixes his troubles too! Love the badge.

Happy belated birthday. I can never remember how old I am (it keeps changing on me!) so I can empathize :)

William Kendall said...

Poor Charlie! We're sending lots of hugs!

Brian said...

Happy minus a year Birthday!!! We are all sending Charlie our best purrs and we know her will be much better.

Eileen said...

I'd sort of like to be your kind of bad a math...if I could shave a year off my age I'd be thrilled.

Purrs for Charlie, the kitties and I hope he beats this virus very soon!

Eileen (Sasha, Sami, & Saku too)

mshatch said...

oh! I am so sorry Charlie will be losing all his teeth! Poor thing! I will be thinking of him on Friday.

Need I Say Meow said...

Hi Charlie. This is Henry. I just read about your surgery. I will be thinking of you lots and lots and lots. Hopefully you feel better very soon.

Purrs

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Happy birthday Jen! I'm glad you are a year younger ...lol! That is a good way to age!

Oh my, poor Charlie! I hope he gets through dental surgery OK and kicks the virus for good! I'm sure he'll do well with soft food. Hang in there Charlie--we are all cheering you on!

{{ hugs}} to you Jen, for being there for him!

Jasper Jazzbones said...

Oh Charlie, you have our purrs!

Pasha said...

Oh Charlie, we hope your surgery goes well. Cats do just fine with no teeth. We'll be thinking about you and purraying really hard for everything to go well and be painless.

Helena said...

Thank you for trying to get into Becoming Layla! Once again I'm having technical problems but they should be cleared up soon.

Good luck to Charlie. My own (old) kitty has only five teeth, three of them in the front, but she eats both hard and soft food just fine, so Charlie should do well too.

Congratulations on reaching 43 with such style!

Lynda R Young said...

wow, that's a brilliant birthday present to find out you are a year younger than you thought!!!

Poor Charlie with no teeth! I hope it fixes the problem :(

Donna Hosie said...

Hehe, oh this made me laugh. You shouldn't be getting your age wrong at such a young age!

Good luck to Charlie as well.

Teresa Ashby said...

Oh bless, you forgetting your own age :-)
I am sending lots of love and positive thoughts for Charlie and you too. Big hugs for you both xx

the writing pad said...

Hi Not So Old As She Thought Kitty - Your words are tons better than all those little words used to describe them - But how lovely to find yourself a year younger after your birthday! The clue, I guess is in your Blog Welcome Message (starting ... For my 40th birthday, in 2009 ...) but I didn't spot that until now :-)
Heaps of love and luck to Charlie - take care of you, too.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We are sending our loudest purrs and woofs and prayers that Charlie's dental goes smoothly and he adjusts quickly to life without teeth (and hopefully, the calici virus too).

Fuzzy Tales said...

Purrs, purrayers and universal Light to Charlie, we hope all goes well, poor sweetheart. Give him a kiss and hug from our human.

And (((hugs))) to you, we know this will be stressful for you too!

Words A Day said...

poor charlie, hope he beats that virus:)x
glad to hear youre a year younger than last time I was here...thats some feat:)!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We have increased our purrs for Charlie and Mum suggests a glass or two of wine may help you sleep!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Rene said...

We wish you and Charlie only the best. We hope his surgery goes well. We're thinking of you.

Clarissa Draper said...

I'm so sorry to hear of Charlie's teeth. I hope the surgery goes well.

Claudia Del Balso said...

LOL! Women usually count backwards after 40, but you were brave to add an extra digit ;)
Poor Charlie! I hope the surgery goes well and his recovery is a speedy one. Sending lots of hugs his way.

Anne Gallagher said...

Prayers to Charlie and you. And I wish I was bad at math, but there's no denying I'm 50.

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Oh Bless. Charlie gets lots of Prayers and virtual kisses and cuddles from me to Charlie and you both.

You are entitled to get your age confused, you've got lots on your mind. I always say those with a creative imagination are allowed to use words in a teensy weensy little tiny itty bitty kreativ kitty sort of way. I'm pants at maths too! x

Cezar and Léia said...

I'm sending love and purrs to sweet Charlie!
Thinking of you all dear friends,
Luna - wE LOVE LUNA

Lola Sharp said...

First, I'm sorry I missed your birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And, if you're gonna miscalculate your age, you're supposed to flub younger...always younger.

Second, OMGoodness, poor Charlie!!!!! Sending him lots of good thoughts and love and prayers (and for you too). *hugs*

Julia Hones said...

Happy birthday to you! I hope you had a nice time. Good luck with the surgery. I will keep you in my thoughts.

Summer Ross said...

I hope all goes well with charlie. ((hugs)))

Ginger Jasper said...

Sweet Charlie I am purring so loud that the vets visit goes well and that you are soon back in tip top health.. Hugs GJ xxx

Medeia Sharif said...

I sometimes have a brain fart and forget my age.

I'm so sorry Charlie is going through this. I'm wishing him the best and hope he recovers fine, which he should with you by his side.

Father Tom said...

We'll keep our paws crossed for Charlie!

Hugs,
Tom xx

Carol Kilgore said...

Purrs and Prayers galore for Charlie. Will he get implants or have to live with soft food?

Repositório said...

Purring for Charlie!

D..J. Kirkby said...

Happy belated birthday! I could't remember how old I was either, sigh. I hope Charlie's surgery is a success and he enjoys eating all the yummy soft meaties and gravy from now on.

Shawn said...

OMC, what did I miss?????
Charlie has to have ALL of his teeth removed? I need to go back and read. I've been away from internet service for several days!

Shawn said...

I will put your badge on my side bar and will send purrs, prayers and Wirey Hugs your way!

I briefly looked at the symptoms for this virus on the link you provided. Cecil carries the Herpes Virus and it usually flares up if he is under stress. He had constant symptoms as a kitten until he was about 2 years old.Luckily, his only symptoms were those of the respiratory system with lots of sneezing and runny eyes.

Four Dinners said...

I as had many Centurions who have become teethless....apparently us cats are prone to things that require us to be teethless in later years...

You will be my first Gummy Centurion!....You will be awarded 'The Order Of The Maximus Gumminess'

Theresa Milstein said...

I thought we were close in age, so I was surprised you were turning 44. That's too funny! I guess you don't agonize over age like me.

Poor Charlie. The same thing happened to my sister's cat. If you need any info, let me know. I hope Charlie beats this thing. xo

The Golden Eagle said...

I hope the surgery goes well. All of his teeth have to be removed? :( Poor Charlie . . .

ABBY said...

Oh...well...it's better to be younger than older I say.
And Charlie we are sorry about your upcoming surgery but we are all purring it goes well and that you are 100% returned to good health.

purrs

The Lee County Clowder said...

Don't worry too much, Charlie. Kitties do quite well with all their teeths pulled, still eating kibble & crunchies no problem.

ppuurrrrrsss

meowmeowmans said...

44 or 43 ... you're still young, either way!

We are purring and praying for Charlie. We know you will beat this calicivirus, dear boy.

Hugs to you all.

KarenMcG said...

Oh, Charlie, The Boys and I will be keeping you in our thoughts and purryers.

And, Old Kitty, glad you got your birthday day figured out.

Katie Isabella said...

I will be waiting on news..and I think about you every day. Sending love and purrs. xoxoxoxox

Misha Gericke said...

Poor Charlie. I hope he comes out of surgery alright.

See you when you're back.

Bellen said...

Good luck to Charlie in his upcoming surgery. It's a tough thing to have all one's teeth taken away, but once his mouth recovers, I'm sure he'll be better all 'round.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Sending TONS of purrs and prayers for Charlie with his surgery on the 20th! We are thinking of you!! xoxoxo

Ann Best said...

Prayers for Charlie. And you don't have to keep up with commenting. Focus on Charlie. You know you are dearly beloved, you and Charlie, by SO many people.

Take care. Many ((( hugs ))) from me and Jen!

Marg said...

Well we certainly are sending many more purrs to Charlie for a successful surgery. And Charlie, you will be able to eat just about anything that you want to eat. Our Orange Boyz is eating dry food and everything else. But we will be thinking about about you on the 20th and your Mom too. Take care.

Tucker The Crestie said...

We will be crossing fingers for Charlie on the day of his surgery!

fairyhedgehog said...

Poor Charlie! Fingers crossed for him about the virus.

And hugs to you.

Jay Paoloni said...

Again, I wish Charlie good luck.
I'll try hard to get him to feel as much sympathy from me as possible.

dieschonheit said...

Dear Charlie

Hoping all goes well for your surgery. I am not allowed to raid the cat food bowls in my house, but sometimes I do... but cat food does not really agree with me.. which is why I am probably not allowed it!

The Teacher's Pets said...

I will be thinking of Charlie on Friday, fur sure! Poor guy! I've never heard of a cat getting the flu but if he can prevent it by tooth removal I hope it works!

Tamago said...

I hope the dental surgery will go well. So sorry his teeth will be all removed, but it's for the better... Sending lots of purrs and prayers.

Minerva Black the shoppe keeping cat said...

Oh my goodness, poor Charlie, I feel so sad for him and am keeping all our paws crossed that he will be okay and well again. Mrs Black had a lot of teeth removed as well, and she is fine now. Many hugs to you all. x

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Don't feel bad. I can't remember how old I am. I think 43? My kids know. I guess this is the hazard of writing YA. In my head, I'm only 17. :D

Betsy Brock said...

haha...well, it's got to be a great feeling that you are younger than you thought! hahaha.

Poor Charlie! Hoping for all the best on the 20th!

LTM said...

Oh my goodness! Poor Charlie! I hope he's okay! :o(

As for math, oh, just don't get me started. I'm the SAME way. LOL at your mom being relieved~ :D ((hugs))

cleemckenzie said...

Poor baby. Poor Mom. Sending cyber hugs to both. Hope this surgery will give Charlie some relief.

Brian said...

Thank you for the kond and thoughtful words on the passing of my beloved Alex. I appreciate you. Sister Gracie from Brian's Home

Purrs to Charlie.

Au and Target said...

Hey, Charlie comes first! We're purring for him.

That maths thing must be a writer thing because I was 39 for the years when I was 39 and 39!

Hilary said...

I always forget my age too...
I am praying for Charlie
Thank you so much for posting the badge of Alex...as well as the words of comfort you left on my blog.... hugs

Stephen Tremp said...

I feel so sad for Charlie! He's such a fixture here in Blogdom. Good luck Charlie!

Hart Johnson said...

Too funny about forgetting your age. I said 46 a few times before my birthday, but those were impulse answers. When I stop to think about it, I know how old I am (older than you). I will be sending Charlie good thoughts tomorrow, poor guy. i hope it works to beat this thing!

Theresa Milstein said...

How's Charlie doing?

The Teacher's Pets said...

Thanks for visiting me today! I just wanted you to know I'm thinking of Charlie as he preps for his dental visit tomorrow!

Lydia Kang said...

Poor little Charlie! Well, I'm sure this means he'll be healthier without them. So sorry!

Esme said...

Charlie, I hope that the surgery does what it needs to do.

xo the twins.

Soggibottom said...

Ah, well, Charlie baby, you will look just as cute even with a few gaps ...
We can call you gums and you will be just as precious to us.......
Every day, every hour and every second.. it count's.
Loves Charlie...
Deep hugs and be a good lad ...
If you ever want to come and visit Frankie de tabby it might be stressful, but :-) WE LOVE YOU WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER .....

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are sending extra purrs today and gentle headbutts for Charlie and some for worried Jenn too.

I hope that Charlie came through his surgery just fine and is munching up his food. Herman, Spyro and Oja are purring for him.

Brian said...

Purrs to you Charlie, we're all thinking of you.
