“BROKED” (Or how to NOT start a new week!)

Published June 21, 2017 by NylabluesMum


Namaste an humbull greetinss frum thee Purrfect Pad. Ferst let mee mee-yow that thee ONLEE fing werser than a ‘hollerin’ LadyMum iss a silent LadyMum! **shudders**

Youss’ must bee wunderin why LadyMum iss so silent. It iss NOT a purrty story! An mee feelss pawfull… 

Do youss’ reememburr this foto?:See thee nice Chinese Lady lamp? An purrhapss youss’ reememburr these fotoss all so: An thee Chinese Man lamp iss inn this foto:After last nite hee sorta needss a new ‘lady’. ***hangss head inn shame*** Mee did thee WERSEST fing EFURR an knocked thee Chinese Lady lamp to thee floor. Thee lamp BROKED in 4 big peecess an many littul shards an LadyMum terned 50 shadess of RED!!! Mee ran inn to thee bedroom an ONLEE came out fur tuna twice an went rite back inn to thee room an mee carrier. There iss no foto; LadyMum was too fureeuss to take any as shee had to cleen uppy thee mess an shee was cryin a lot. Today shee has been silent thru mee eye an dental treetmintss an puttin mee out inn condo. Shee not even peep a werd! It was SO-O freeky! An shee wood give mee *stinky eye* when mee tried to make eye contact. Shee even went out without tellin mee!  When shee went fur a not-so-happy nappy mee brott her mee beeluvved mousie, Puff Daddy: When shee woked uppy there hee was an mee an mee head rubbed her fur 15 minuttss nonstop till shee furinallee putted her armss around mee an whispurred, ” Mee still luvss you See-Dhartha Henry.” Those are thee bestest werdss efurr! Mee knowss shee will bee uppyset fur a long time **sighsss**… 

So mee publicklee apawlogizess to you LadyMum: “Deerest LadyMum: Mee iss FURRY sorry mee hollered at you last nite an uppyset you an broked yur luvley lamp. Mee iss humbullee sorry. Luv, yur (tryin to bee a good Buudhist) boy, Siddhartha Henry.” 

Thee reason LadyMum iss so-o uppyset iss that these pair of lampss were a Wedding gift to her Pawentss inn 1949 frum her Pappaw’ss BEST furend an his wife.  LadyMum thott of thee Bergmanss’ss as her Aunty an Unccle; they were THAT close. Her Pappaw an Mistur Frederick were furendss befur thee 2nd Werld War inn Germany an thott each other was dead til they found each other inn Canada after the War. So that iss why LadyMum iss so sentimental about the lampss…Anyone know where mee can find a Chinese Lady lamp circa 1949 made inn USA? Mee not even abull to laff about this!   

May thee Eye of Buudha Kat bee upon efurryone (an mee all so…) A broked hearted Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

  • We’re sorry to hear about this accident … because that’s what it was: an accident. They happen and nobody died. I do feel for your LadyMum. I too get attached to stuff, even though they are just ‘stuff’. My Hadassah broke a bowl that was my [then]-husband’s baptismal bowl. He was probably both very sad and angry inside, but never showed anything outwardly. This too shall pass. McDuff is going in for his pedicure today, but he doesn’t know it yet.

    • Mee-you Aunty Rebby once mee brott LadyMum Puff Daddy mousie shee furgave mee. It was not funny brakin an xpensive fing of LadyMum’ss. Shee doess not have a lot of speshell fingss frum her earlee dayss so mee felt badlee.
      Hadassah broked thee bowl; on mee oh mye!!! See mee not thee onlee axey-dent prone kittyboy!
      Good Luck McDuff with thee Peddycure.

  • Oh dear!! I think Chili knows how you feel…I had some very very expensive army issue night vision goggles for my paranormal investigating and he knocked them off my desk! They could not be fixed. I did not speak to him for about a week; he did not have the sense to bring me a present lol xxxx

  • Oh, dear, what a huge OOPS. and a bad one.
    It must have been so awful to see that lamp in a million-plus bits.
    We do hope you have been forgiven.
    Hugs & Purrs

      ***nose bumpsss*** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

  • Even though you didn’t mean to do this, Dhartha, you were careless and it has hurt your LadyMum a lot. Even if she finds another one, it won’t be the same. I am glad you understood and were penitent, even bringing her your mousie. We all still love you, Buddha boy.

    • Mee feelss pawfull Lady Amy! Trust mee it as an axey-dent; not an ‘pn purrpose’!!!

  • Oh dear you are a clumsy kitty,You mum will always have the photos and the memories of the lamp.At least you don’t deliberately chew the carpet like Speedy does,xx Aunty Rachel

  • We are so sorry and our heart goes out to both of you. We know you did not mean to break the lamp sweet Siddhartha and we know that sweet LadyMum knows that too and we can understand why you are both very sad. Sending lots of warm, gentle hugs, nose kisses and love to you both.

      Fankss fur sue-pportin mee us Aunty!
      ~~~head rubsss~~~ Siddhartha Henry~~~

  • Oh sweet Purrince! Much as LadyMum loved that lamp,I am sure she would rather lose it than her Kitty Boy. But humans take awhile to process such sad things – one of my kitties long ago peed on a suitcase and ruined some very old photos of my Papa (who died when I was 11) so I can guess how she feels! When things settle down, eBay might be a place to look too! Puurrs and POTP to you both ❤ ❤

    • Mee-you Lady Mary wee kittiess sure cawss havock don’t wee??? Mee iss sorry you losted yur Pappaw’ss fotoss’. LadyMum wood toe-tally lose her mind if THAT happened!Mee been on eBay an found sum simmylar lampss butt not thee xact set…..there ARE old! Mee not sure what LadyMum iss goin to do.

    • Mee-you Kosmo mee HAS found sum simmylar lampss! So there ISS hope maybee there iss a ‘Lady’ lamp out there sumwhere on eBay!! Sum of these lampss are werth over $1,000. YIKESS!!
      An LadyMum iss playin toyss with mee an mee-yowin with mee again…..whew that was scarey!
      ***nose rubsss*** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

  • Oh dear……so sorry this has happened as obviously the lamp was very important to Ladymum but we know you didn’t break it on purpose and she does too…..she’s just sad. You were so sweet to bring her one of your toys as an apology – that was a DEAR thing to do……..My Mom says she’s lost a lot of very important things through the years from breaking accidents and while it hurts for a while, that hurt mellows with time….like it was for us when Angel Sammy went to the Bridge. Time heals all things…the lamp was an important lamp, but I am sure her love for you is just as important dear boy. She will always have the MEMORY of the lamp……….

    Sending lots of hugs…………..Teddy

    • Mee-you Teddy an Lady Pam mee did what mee could…mee knowss a toy mousie doess not reeplace thee xpensive fancy lamp butt mee iss sinseer that mee not meen to knock it over….***sighsss***
      An shee says rite now thee memoree of thee lamp iss not a comfort so mee went to eBay an found sum simmylar oness fur her to look at. (sum cost $1,000. Teddy!! That iss food an treetss fur Life!!)

      ~~~head rubsss~~~ Siddhartha Henry~~~

  • What a bummer you broke the lamp, Siddhartha. 😦 My human had a cat many years ago that broke lots of her things – he was always knocking something over, never on purpose. It was just because he was active and a bit clumsy. After him, my human keeps ALL breakable things out of kitty reach! Well, the one time she forgot with a cute knickknack of a woman fairy holding a cat fairy, Binga broke it – fortunately, it wasn’t an antique and she was able to order another one.

    • Mee-you Summer seems yur Mumma had gone thru a lot with her katss all so. Part of thee problem was that mee thott mee was not goin to run inn to thee lamp! Mee ‘ouchy’ eye steered mee wrong!! **sighsss**
      LadyMum finkss shee will put thee Chinese Man lamp inn thee bedroom inn corner where mee nevurr goess an just buy new unbrace-abull lampss….Mee searched eBay an found simmylar lampss fur $1,000. YIKESS!!
      Mee wishes mee broked sumfin not xpensive like Binga did!
      ***paw patsss*** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

    • BUMMER iss rite Lady Monika!!! Mee looked on eBay an mee found simmylar lampss; sum are over $1,000. Mee REELLY hopess LadyMum furgivess….. **gulpsss**

      Fankss fur stoppin bye….
      ~~head rubsss~~ Siddhartha Henry~~

  • Siddhartha Henry, we know you didn’t mean to break the lamp. Sometimes us kitties get just a little to rambunctious and then trouble happens. We’re glad your Lady Mum still loves you…though we know it hurts that she doesn’t have this special lamp anymore.

    • RAMBUNKTUSS iss thee WERD Wally an Ernie an Zoey!!! An mee not see propurrlee because of mee ‘ouchy’ eye!!! Mee thott mee run beeside thee lamp. Mee iss just as sad as LadyMum…..At leest shee iss kissin mee an mee-yowin to mee again!
      ***paw patsss*** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

  • I am glad your Mum told you she still loves you, that was a very naughty thing to do.Clearly they were very sentimental to your Mum, maybe she could save the pieces and glue them in a display box so she still has the original. Have her try to see if there is a manufacturer listed on them and my Mom can try to search for a lamp like that. Please try to be a good boy. I love you my purrince. XO and paw kisses and nose rubs too

    • Mee sweet Phoebe mee felt turribull when mee broked thee lamp…..it iss inn thee garbage; too borked to fix or even sorta peece back together. An LadyMum says there iss NO identifyin name on thee lampss an shee has tried to find out who made the,. They were given as a gift inn 1949 an were brott over thee border frum New York….that iss all shee knowss about them…
      Mee iss berry sub-dude today an beein good. Mee not want to uppyset LadyMum anymore than mee has! 😉
      Fank you fur still luvvin mee! Yur thee BESTEST ❤ ❤ ❤
      All mee LUV an ***paw kissesss*** Siddhartha Hhenry thee Humbulled xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

        • Yur thee sweetest most deerest Purrincess a Purrince like mee could have! It WAS an axey-dent an mee feelss sad even today. Mee hopess LadyMum doess NOT fink mee iss a ‘lamp killer’……
          An yur Mumma iss sweet all so ❤
          All mee ❤ an ***paw kissesss*** yur humbull Purrince xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • We have these assy-dents at our house, too. ( Mommy says it is very strange that she’s had cats all her life and for the first time ever she has had to resort to putting her nice things away. ) We knows you are very sorry and your sweet Mum will be sad for a while over the memories, but it will get better.
    Sending all our love your way.

    • Mew mew mew Precious that iss a funny werd! LadyMum tried to give mee more ‘stinky eye’ butt thee assy-dent werd made her giggull…FANK you fur that!!! An Lady Tonya that iss what LadyMum said to mee today; that shee nevurr had to put fingss away with ‘thee otherss’….now mee feels werse than efurr.

  • I saw where.this was going from the beginning!

    House with a cat! She should have known better!
    I feel bad for you and for mum but the good news

    We love you too!
    Auntie Toby

    • Mee nevurr herted these lampss befur so LadyMum thott they were safe Aunty Toby. LadyMum still luvss mee butt shee not ‘like’ mee at thee moment….
      Mee luvss you all so Aunty.
      ~~head rubsss~~ Siddhartha Henry~~

  • Oh boy, Siddhartha, that was a really big boo-boo. We have broken some important things over time, but none as special as that. Some things are just so sentimental that our folks cannot help their reactions. We know LadyMum still loves you, and she will forgive you. We are sorry she lost something that was so important to her. She might be able to find a replacement on eBay, but it wouldn’t be the same. Sending lots of love and hugs. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy 💞🌺

    • Mee feels pawfull Lily O an Mau an thee gang…Aunty Janet mee iss worried LadyMum iss still not mee-yowin to mee. Mee iss goin to look on eBay as much as mee can….
      Fankss fur beein here fur mee us!!!
