Movie Monday

Update on Beignet:  The news isn't good.  The pathology report showed a fibrosarcoma and there were cancer cells at the edge of the tumor, so he must have another surgery tomorrow (Tuesday).  The vets are shocked at the results because the tumor grew so quickly in such a young kitten.  Based on articles I've been researching, this type of tumor tends to happen in about 1% of cats.  He could survive the surgery tomorrow, but he will need very special attention the rest of his life.  Any needle going through the skin could cause another tumor.  Unfortunately, Beignet will not be coming to live with Truffle and me.  He'll stay with Mom Terri, who will take excellent care of him.  Please keep this little guy in your prayers as he faces another surgery and an uncertain future.  I feel like I'm losing Sweet Praline all over again.  Both Mom Terri and I are so sad.

I just adore Truffle's little personality.  She appears to love to play and even when one of the other kittens gets in her way, takes her toy, or pounces on her, she gets up and continues to play.  I hope you enjoy these two little movies of Truffle at 8 weeks old.



Truffle has the darker gray fur in these videos.  Nothing seems to phase her, does it?



I also wanted to share a updated picture of Truffle and Beignet (at 11 weeks old) that  Terri sent me last night.  They are really developing their own looks as they get older.  Truffle is on the left and Beignet is on the right.  If you want to see all of the pictures (35), you can visit my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2353587121025.138989.1290590442&type=1. 



Please remember to keep Beignet in your purrs and prayers this week as he recuperates from his surgery and that his pathology report will be negative!

Pee ess - Just a little note to thank all of you for your continued visits, purrs, purrayers, prayers, and support.  I've been on the road an average of 3 days a week since June and now my office is changing locations and the move date is this Saturday.  I'm really behind in my visits to your blogs, but please know that I'll be back visiting soon!  You're a very special group!

Truffle is going to keep you on your toes, for sure. A little wild one! LOL.

Continued purrs for Beignet, paws crossed for the pathology report.

Laila and Minchie said...

When Mom turns on the computer for us each morning, your blog is the first place we come! We just know when your little babies come home, lots will not get done (and a few getting to work late days) because all you'll want to do is play and watch these two darling ones!

Still keeping those purrs for Beignet coming!

Marg said...

Those videos are just terrific. Just too short. MOL. Is Truffles bigger than Beignet? Sure looks like or she is just sitting up straighter than Beignet. Gosh this is fun seeing them grow up. Do you have plenty of toys for them?? I bet you do.
Sending tons of purrs for Beignet in hopes the test will be negative. We just know it will. Not to worry about not visiting, we just enjoy seeing their pictures. Take care.

Clarissa said...

Mom makes these squeeing noises every time she sees pics of Beignet and Truffles. We are still purring for Beignet and a great report.

Brian said...

They are both such cuties and we're still purring for sweet Beignet.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We came by to catch up. We were aware of Beignet's surgery from FB, but we haven't been able to do much visiting for a while. The kittens are adorable. Just know you're going to have a ball with them when they get to come home.

Purrs and tail wags that all is well with Beignet.

Angel and Kirby said...

Truffle is a take charge kind of girl! Purrs to Beignet

Cheysuli and gemini said...

We got to see the photos over at Facebook and we loved the way their personalities are coming out so clearly as they grow up! What cuties---I think Beignet is going to be quite a little lover cat so we are purring especially hard for him.

Mark's Mews said...

We loved the videos of Truffle! She gets pounced but just gets up an keeps playing... Continued purrs for Beignet...

We enjoyed the movies so much. We have never had a kitten here, so we get to enjoy seeing yours, how playful and cute.

We're sending mega purrs to Beignet.

The picture of Beignat and Truffle at 11 weeks is fabulous. That should be in your banner at the top! The movies are great of Truffle. Everything will be fine I am sure. Lots of good karma being sent your way.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We just read the update on Miss Peach about to leave for the bridge and then we read the update on Beignet not being able to come live with you because he has cancer. We're very sorry. We know you've come to love him.

Karen said...

we are so sorry about Beignet. Is there anyway once he is cancer free that he could go live there?

The Lee County Clowder said...

Oh, wow, NO! Se just heard about Beignet. We are so sorry.

Sending comforting purrrrrrs to you all.

FURKIDSMOM said...

We're so amazed that such a sweet, young baby could have cancer. We're so very sorry that you have to relive this. We will continue to keep sweet Beignet in our prayers.

Mom Paula, we are so sorry to hear about Beignet. We will be purring as he undergoes another surgery tomorrow. You are all in our thoughts.

Angel and Kirby said...

We are heart broken over this news. We are sending lots of purrs and tears to you and the babies!

"The Boys" and Karen said...

Mom Paula, "The Boys" and I just happened to stop in tonight to see if there was any news about little Beignet.

We are in shock...and most likely not more than you. We're so sorry to learn about the results of his test and that he has to have another surgery tomorrow.

And, of course, that he will not be able to join Truffle and you.

We'll keep you and Beignet and Terri and Truffle in our thoughts and prayers.

Sparkle said...

I am so sorry that Beignet won't be coming home to you, and I am purring for healing for him. I think he will always be part of your life, even if from a distance. Such a lot for a kitten to have to go through. :-(

Prancer Pie said...

Healing purrs fur you and little Beignet. Hard day :( xoxo

Fin said...

Oh no! We are so sorry to hear that. Purrs to you and the little baby.

ABBY said...

Sending healing purrs to Beignet and you Paula.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Oh dear...instead of great joy, we know it is now tempered with sadness for Beignet. Teri has been a vet tech since 1972 and she can't ever remember a kitten so young being diagnosed with fibrosarcoma. We know both your and Terri's hearts must be breaking, but try and be like our cats and put one paw in front of the other and try to not worry but to stay strong for sweet Beignet, and Truffles.

If there is anything that our Teri can do, please don't hesitate to contact her, ok...

Cory said...

All of us are sending our purrs to Beignet. We know he will be in good paws with his momma Chloe but our hearts are breaking that he will not be coming to live with you.

Punapippuri said...

We are so very sad to hear about Beignet's condition and totally shocked. WE send him lots of purrs and loads of noserubs to you and Mom Terri - this is really very unfair and distressing in such a pure innocent kitty. Purrs xxxx

A few Good Cats said...

That is such awful news about Beignet. He will be in our thoughts and purrayers.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I am so shocked and saddened to hear this news. Little Beignet will be well-cared for, but I am so very sorry he will not be coming home with you.

I pray and trust that God and Terri will care for him, as you let little Truffle bring healing to your hurting heart.

threecatyard said...

I'm so sorry to hear the news about Beignet. My thoughts are with you all at this sad news.

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww little Beignet!! How awful! :-(

Me and my cat Charlie are so sad to hear this. We came over from Jan's Funny Farm. Beignet is so tiny and so young to be suffering. We are so sorry. We send mum Terri and everyone lots of purrs, hugs, and hope!

Awwww Truffle is just adorable! What a darling! Take care
