Meet Truffle and Beignet

It's time for the big announcement - the two kittens are brother (#2) and sister (#1) and their mom is Chloe.  The little girl's name will be Truffle and the little boy's name will be Beignet (pronounced "ben-yay").   These names are honoring Sweet Praline because they are sweet confections from New Orleans/French cuisine, just like pralines. Some of you did an excellent job on your guesses yesterday!!!



I hope you enjoy the short introductory video below.

Congratulations! What sweethearts they both are, how special that they are littermates too! I have always enjoyed having one female cat and one male cat at the same time so I think you are in store for a real treat. Love your new blog. Thanks for coming by Clooney's Birthday Comment-a-thon.
They are both absolutely gorgeous and the names in honour of Miss Sweet Praline are purr-fect!

Sparkle said...

It sounds to me like they picked you at least as much as you picked them. Their names are perfect (not to mention two of my human's favorite foods), and I can't wait for them to come home!

Paula, I am so happy for you and the adorable new kittens. You will bring each other so much love and joy in the years to come.
Praline will be so happy for you ~ she wants her mom to be happy, of that I'm sure. xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, Paula, we're so happy for you, so excited. The mom's leaking happy tears.

We see Truffle already has the bunny kicking moves down pat. LOL.

The six weeks probably will pass slowly for you in some ways, but soon the babies will home with you and we can't wait to follow their adventures!

barb @iPhoneographi said...

Truffle and Beignet are 2 very lucky kittens! Not to mention completely adorable. I know you will all enrich each others lives!

Looks like you have been chosen by a very special pair of saucepot kittens. They are gorgeous. We hope Jasmine is recovering too :)

OMC! Mom is bawling like an idiot they are so cute!!! How in the world will you tell them apart? And the names fit them just purrfectly! OMC! We just know Praline is looking down with her approval and will watch over these precious little ones for the rest of their long lives.

The Crew said...

Awww...how perfect. We can't wait to see more of these little cuties.

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We guessed right, somehow we just knew you were going to get Chloe's kittens and we loves their names.

When the boy beans were little and taking an Art History class Mommy had a great time visiting with the other Mom's while drinking coffee and eating beignets @ Mary Mahoney's.

CCL Wendy said...

Oh Paula! I'm so happy for you. I'm sure you'd like the next six weeks to fly by.

I love the names you have chosen. They are so distinctive, and so appropriate as you pointed out.

You can't get any more adorable than these two, and you're going to have so much fun when they're home with you. Just watching them will probably tire you out! LOL!

I'm sure Sweet Praline is smiling down from the Bridge because she wants her Mom to be happy, too.

The Island Cats said...

Oh our mom is squeeing so loud it is hurting our ears!! Welcome Truffle and Beignet!! We know you both will be so happy in your new home. And Mom Paula, we know that those two will bring you much joy!!

Oh,Paula, you and the kitties are so blessed as you have each other. Love the new names and thanks for the video. It will be a wonderful addition to their "baby book". "The Boys" and I are excited for you for September to get here pronto! We have sniffles of joy for you.

The Whiskeratti said...

Yeaa!!! We look forward to hearing about their first days in their new Forever Home. They are both so beautiful. PS: thanks for telling us how to pronounce Beignet. We were gonna have to ask... :)

Paula, I am over the moon for all three of you! Truffle and Beignet are adorable, and it is going to be so much fun to watch them grow up, I don't know much about persian cats so I'm very excited to see how they develop.
I bet Angel Praline is anxious to guide them into all sorts of naughtiness, too.
xx Trish
