Wednesday Word—Broken

CK is a broken cat and not just cos of all the sickies I’ve been dealing with. Sunday, TW dealt me a blow much lower than the sickies have. She broke my most beloved dish.


In the condo, we have lots of dishes for The Cat’s food BUT there are only two in which I get my beloved Fancy Feast Grilled Tuna. They’re hand-me-downs from Cod knows how many cats before me. They’re strong; they don’t chip when Pop does the dishes and throws everything into the dishpan. They had to last forever cos TW doesn’t know how and where she could buy those same dishes. Y’all remember I stopped drinking H2O after my favorite water dish broke. The peeps didn’t dare break my FF dish!

That all changed in the blink of an eye. TW went to stack my dishes in the right order—she has to do that cos she’s so senile she’ll give me the wrong dish if it’s NOT in order—and there was a crash followed by an "OH NO!!!!”


Pop rushed in. CK rushed in. It was in two neat little pieces as you can see above. When I saw the pieces, I started to hyperventilate. My dish! Woman, you did this on purpose? How could you??? I needed an explanation. The Cat’s heart was breaking. TW claimed it was an accident and had only fallen less than two feet from the cabinet on to the stove.


If anybody recognizes this dish or the label on the bottom, TW is willing to pay anything to replace it!! Yes, she is! Excuse me— I don’t NEED your permission, Woman! That’s your punishment for breaking it! It’s a vintage 1990s dish from Petsmart or Pet Central. It’s been in the CK family for generations. It’s made of good China. What, Woman? I know what it says but it sounds better my way.

Hasn’t this little ghetto kitteh been through enough already without another loss in the family?

RIP, dear FF dish.
UPDATE—I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping; and, every time I groom myself, I start sneezing. Pop said I’m allergic to cat fur. Dr. D says the pollen the peeps bring in with them settles on my fur. Then I lick it up. TW will be trying to wipe me down with a damp towel at least once a day. In turn, TW will be getting bit at least once a day. I’m certainly feeling better than I was and my breathing is much better. I’ve done some playing but nothing too strenuous. Thanks for all the healing purrz and vibes. This little gangsta kitteh appreciates it.

Well, if she uses a soft warm damp towel, it might feel good to get wiped down. Not buying it? Well, okay, I tried. Go ahead and bite her then.

Oh, and you have a CONTRACT? Why have I not heard about this before?? Oh, Hyooooooooooomin!!!

Travis Ford said...

A damp towel and a broken dish? Dis are just too much to handle!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I am sending lots of purrs your way, CK - I'm relieved that your dish breaking did not give you a relapse!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

We're glad you're feeling better, CK, but the dish is a low blow indeed.

A quick google image search of "cat feeding dish with paws" shows that there re still a few lookalike dishes on the market if you can't find a local replacement.

Molly The Wally said...

Oh no CK a broken dish and then she gets out the wet towel. Yikes I have just broken into a cold sweat as I relive bathtime. Hope you get better soon. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

So sorry that all I posted before was links! I think I found the dishes.. The first one looks right, the second one has two styles and I am not sure which is exactly yours.
I couldnt do more than copy and paste because all I had was my mouse hand and limited use of that as Leo had decided he required much love and pets and flopped down across my chest and needed the support of one hand and occasional scritches with the other!
Glad you're starting to feel better, keep going in that direction sweet CK!

Marilia Bavaresco said...

CK, purring to you!

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

Aww!! Your poor bowl!!!! I will keep my eyes open in case I see it in a pet store.
I am so glad your breathing is getting better! That's great news! Hopefully the wipe down once a day will help with the sneezing.

Oh no CK, sorry about that favorite bowl. You will just have to hold auditions for a new one. We all are sending you our best purrs and hope you are feeling better.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Oh noes CK not a broken dish! This is just too much and now a wet towel too??? Oh we hope a replacement can be found and that the pollen stops coming in the front door. (hugs)

Nerissa said...

Oh no! This won't do. This simply won't do at all. Breakin' our favourite dishes is completely unacceptable 'cause... you know... they're our favourites.

MOUSES!

Purrs,
Nissy

PS. I like FF grilled chicken, too. purrs

Oh no! Our Duchess' favorite kitty shaped dish got broken a while back. It hurt all our hearts. We so sorry about yours. It stings a lot when stuff like that happens.
(((Hugs)))

meowmeowmans said...

Oh no! This is just terrible news, CK. We can't believe she broke your dish. :(

We are continuing with our purr and prayer for CK marathon. Get well soon!

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

So sorry to hear about your favorite dish, CK. That really is terrible news. We hope TW will be able to replace it. And we are very happy to hear that you are feeling better. We'll still be purring your way!

Caren Gittleman said...

you know what? I had that SAME dish! It was my Angel Bobo's!! I think mine broke too!

Anonymous said...

Just when you think you couldn't possibly endure any more heartache (or asthma attacks), your beloved bowl gets broken. Adds insult to injury doesn't it. Well, I see one good soul FOUND your bowl on Amazon - I think CK should stock up so in future, should she commit this grevious sin yet again, there will be a replacement READY. Glad you are feeling better - seriously.

Hugs, Sammy

Sorry to hear about your favorite dish! If I happen to run across one, you will be the first to know. Maybe you will find a dish that makes your FF taste even better :)

edie said...

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Sorry to hear about your dish. I try to avoid ceramic or glass anything because I'm so clumsy.

Pasha said...

Feel all better soon CK. Sorry for your beloved dish!

The Island Cats said...

That's too bad about your dish, CK. That happened to one of our food dishes. And the mom searched the innernets and was fortunate enough to find one. We sure hope you start feeling better. Maybe when all this pollen dies down...if it ever does.

Mariodacat said...

Well, of all the nerve. TW really did it up big time this time. I hope you don't give up eating now that you can't be served in your fancy china dish. Glad to hear you are feeling a tad better anyway. Allergies are the pits! M's hasn't started in yet, but it will in about another week when all the stuff starts popping here.

CatInTheFridge said...

CK! Doodle uses that to drink goat's milk! Don't they still make those? - Crepes.

Ann Staub said...

Uh oh! At least this means maybe you can get some new China CK. Maybe gold-plated with diamonds or something? ;)

Nailah Bone said...

Aw, sorry to see your dish broke! :( I had a gorgeous ceramic bowl set for Niles when she was a puppy that I absolutely loved. One day we were playing fetch in the living room and I accidentally tossed the ball into one of the bowls. It was a very gentle toss but someone the bowl split in half! Ever since then I've stuck to metal.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I was glad to read on fb that TW's eye "procedure" wented well. We hope she gets a good sleep and feels furry good in the morning. You too, my sweet darling girl XOXOXOXO

Ms. Phoebe said...

My mancat Kaspars says your woman needs to be punished for her carelessness. He recommends FRESH meat that is your favorite served to you a minimum of 10 meals a week.

Pawesome Cats said...

Oh no, not a broken dish! Mom will have to find you a new favourite dish to eat from.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Oh, CK.... I'm sorry you're still feeling kind of icky from the pollen. Don't know if these will help, but we just tried some wipes made by Furminator and they worked great!

...RIP favorite dish.
Looks like you have some leads on a replacement!
xo

Clooney said...

Oh CK, we are sorry to hear about your favorite dish, that is a bummer indeed. We have been thinking of you constantly and purring for you to feel better pronto.

Beatrix said...

the header shot is a tad on the negative side for a high flying career women don't you think. lets arrange a playdate for the twins and keep a ear out for all things running down the pipe! ha ha.

:0p

Sweet Purrfections said...

So sorry to hear about your dish. Hope you'll find one you'll be able to eat from.

We really hope you're feeling better soon. You've really had it rough lately.

Our lazy mom finally posted our covers you designed for us last summer. We love them.
