Beignet is with Sweet Praline

It's with great sadness that I must report that Beignet passed away on the operating table yesterday and is now at the bridge with Sweet Praline.  I think I'm still in shock.  Please keep Mom Terri and Truffle in your prayers, too!


I just can't think of anything else to say right now.  I'm heartbroken!  Even though he never came to live with me, he was my little boy and I already miss him.  I know that Sweet Praline has already taken him under her paw at the Bridge to protect him.

I did find it comforting to go back through all of Beignet's pictures since his birth and thought I'd share a video of his short little life with you.

My heart breaks for you and your lovely boy. Rest in Peace sweet one, there is no justice - you should not have been taken.

Sweet Beignet knows you loved him, and will carry that in his heart forever. He only knows peace, and will be with Sweet Praline, romping in the green fields over the Rainbow Bridge.
Our heartfelt sympathies to you.

Sparkle said...

I'm so, so sorry! I thought for sure he would be around, at least for a while, even if he wasn't coming home to you. Sleep well, little one.

Oh, oh, oh. So very, very sad! I was crying before I even watched the video, because I knew from Twitter what the story was.
You made such a beautiful tribute to that gorgeous little boy.
I'm so sorry that happened...so, so sorry. I feel for you, I cry for you, with you.
Know that he romps happily over the bridge, and has no more pain, and he knows he was very well loved.

Such a wonderful tribute to sweet little Beignet. We can just picture Sweet Praline loving on him and taking care of him. We hope you can take some confort in that.

Sending you our sympathy and purrs. Sweet Praline must have wanted a very special playmate with her at the Bridge, so Beignet, being a good little boy, volunteered.
Lots of snuggles to you and Truffle. We'll stop by Miss Terri and send her the same.

I Had to come by again and leave you a basket of love and comfort on this saddest of days for you and mommy Terri...the world is not fair at times...11 months or 19 years...time can not erase the memories of a loved ones face...

My heart hurts to hear this, such a sweet little man and far too young. He's very blessed to have known so much love and I'm sure he's watching over you with Miss Praline at his side.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Paula, I am sad beyond belief that dear little Beignet didn't make it. He was way too young to become an Angel ~ life can be so harsh.

I am comforted by knowing how loved he was, from the get go you adored him and he was well looked after by Terri. You must all feel devastated. ((((((hugs)))))

I agree, Praline has him under her care at the Bridge ~ he is not alone. I'm so very sorry though.

CCL Wendy said...

I'm so sorry this has happened. Beignet has such a short but sweet life, and like you, I'm sure that Sweet Praline is snuggling with him right now and will look after him on the Bridge.

I guess it just wasn't meant to be that he come home with you.

Your heartbreak must be enormous, as you were already attached. My condolences to you and Terri.

Thank goodness that Truffle is well and healthy and soon to be in your arms.

We're really, really sorry for your loss. Fly free, little Beignet, and know that you were -- and always will be -- loved.

Goldie Goodwin said...

A beautiful tribute! Beignet was far too young to be taken but we never know what the master plan is.
He and Praline will have to help guide you through this. I hate that you are suffering and while all of the CB is concerned about you, at the end of the day you are still alone grieving. Maybe Terri will send little Truffle home early so you can find comfort there.

Athena said...

I'm so very, very sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute to your sweet boy. I wish there were something I could do to comfort you.

I was so so sorry to hear that Beignet has gone to the bridge. Here such a short time but long enough to impact all that knew him. You are in my thoughts and purrs as you are going through this hard time. I know Sweet Praline is taking care of him and they are getting to know each other.

I am so sorry for your loss, beautiful tribute for a very special Kitty. Sweet Praline is now scampering with little Beignet in a field of wild flowers?

We learned of this very sad news from Brian's Home. We are so sorry for your loss of that sweet precious kitty. May Beignet romp freely across the Rainbow Bridge.

Roy said...

Paula, Beignet will await you at Rainbow Bridge. You can be sure that, he, as well as Angel Praline, will be there when you are ready.

I think most everything that can be said here has been said. Just hold your heart strong, your sweet memories close, and be assured you were, and still are, loved by your little ones.

Thinking of you and yours, we are Lisa, Roy, and the 6 Mouskateers.

We are so sorry to learn that little Beignet left for The Bridge. This is such a terrible tragedy for such a young soul to fall victim to this dreadful condition. We hope that one day the companies that make vaccines will find a safe formula that does not carry such awful risks.
