Hi Efuryone~! Iz been a furry weird mornin' fur mom. Mom sez her iz dumb, but I don't think so. Dis mornin' her got up 'n went to turn off da fan on da side o' da bed 'n BONK, her nudges da chest o' drawers which had a furry spawcial puzzle pishure on top o' it. Well dis piccie wuz given to her by a furry good furiend from her last job, yeah da animal health job. 'N den it fell behind da chest 'n broke into a million peices~!!! Well as U know, all us cats gotta inspect stuff 'n we kin'a freaked when it shattered behind, but still tried to check it out. Mom has it blocked off so we can't get behind it BUT, dere's still a chance we might check it out 'n mom worries we'll get our paws all bloody from da shatters. Mom gotta question, what is da best way to clean up broken glass from a carpet? Mom gotta wait til our Paw get's here dis comin' Caturday to halps, coz her can't move da chest by herself, iz jus' way to heavy. Mom frets 'n worries 'bout us so mush. We're bein' good though, 'n not really checkin' it out anymore's. But her still worries. Paw sent an email an' will halps her wif movin' it 'n getting da glass picked up. Not shur though, jus' HOW to get it all outta da carpet??? Mom still so sad coz it wuz a purrfect prezzie puzzle pishure framed in glass o' kitties. Mom knew it wusn't safe to haz it jus' sitting atop my chest, but iz been dere long time 'n I got piccies o' me ina drawer whar dat piccie iz a part of. Anyfur, iz jus' an article, stuff, jus' material 'n all mom cares 'bout is our safety.
Any suggestionz would be o' all kin'a halps~! Hope Ur day is goin' good 'n ya know we love's ya alwayz 'n furefur~!
Pick up all the big pieces by hand (tell your mom to wear a glove so she doesn't get cut) then vacuum several times.
Ouch waiting to happen:(
Sorry she broke a precious memnto...but like you said, its not a fur or a peep...though we do know how it feels to lose things you like...
Meowmy broke a lightbulb into unfurbro's crib...at least he wasn't in it, MOL!
And not that long ago, the other unfurbro broke the window at the bottom of the stairs...and no way could she block that off...
So, yes pick up the pieces you can see...carefurly, then use some kind of tape, heavy tape like carpet tape or duct tape is good, then vacuum, and check with a bright light for any reflections from stubborn pieces that may have been left behind.
Repeat over and over till you are sure its all gone.
Hope that is helpful.
Milo, does your momcat have a shop vac? We have found that no matter what kind of vac it is the shop vac does the best job, make sure she picks up all the big pieces very carefully and than vacuum about ten times, dat's what momcat does and she still worries about it, I have never heard of the tape but that sounds like a good idea, if that was us momcat woudln't let us in the room for probably a month hehehe, she is so silly but we don't want bloody feet, just repeat this as many times as you can, hope this helps....Handsome!!
Oh! So sorry to hear that the pretty picture fell and broke! Maybe it can be fixed somehow. I think a good vacuum would be best like others said. Wear gloves and maybe spread the carpet pile open a bit to reach down. Tell your momcat to be careful!
Hugs and purrs,

You got good suggestions Milo. Tell Mom to be careful. Them little shards she can't see can stick in her. MOL! I said shards! I don't say that too often!
My momma would pick up what she could then vacuum repeatedly.
I'm with the tape idea after the hand picking and vacuuming - have used this before and it's good. It will be OK - if your Mama can't get every tiny piece up with the other methods, chances are they are so deep in the carpet that they're not going to be reached by little cat feet either.
WOW~ Some really really great advice here~ Smart kitties~! Well, we're gonna get some heavy duty tape to use. We don't haza shop vac Presley but we're gonna see if Paw might has someone him know's whofur gotz one 'n bring it wif him when him come's Caturday. Paw sez he'll use a swift small broomage we haz 'n sweep mush o' it in dere.
Oooooh, Pipo dat's real skeery 'bout dat broken light bulb~! Platey dood, mom know's all 'bout dem shards~ mol her broke so mush stuff ona keetchin floor dere's always small shards somewhar or 'nother. Ouchie feet, her sez, but we nefur got it in our feetsies~! Oh yeah gloves is a good idea~ One good thang now iz dat we r no longer interested in 'splorin' da back o' da chest at all. So mom is relieved~! Love U's all 'n thanks fur sendin' so mush good advices~!
Yep we agree, a shop vac and duct tape or heavy duty tape. Just be careful. Since you don't has a shop vac us your reg vac...just make sure it's empty first. When you get done vac make sure to emtpy again and go over the carpet again. That should work.
My twin friend!! I am very sorry to hear your mom's special puzzle got broken but please you and Mallee stay away from there I know you wanna check it out but it is not safe it is like a danger zone until your paw gets there to help clean it up

*Runs in with huge bags of catnip and tuna to distract Milo and siblings from broken glass!*
Come follow me and get away from that bad glass; catnip and tuna are way more fun! Mom doesn't want you to hurt your toesies! I know she'll do a great job getting every little bit out!
Purring for you!
