Now for the fun part. Here's the email I received from Truffle.
"Dearest Mom Paula, Since you've been here to visit me, you know I truly am a sweet girl. However, when Mom Terri tried to convince me to sit still and behave today for my glamour shots, I just had a really hard time with it. Please forgive me if my pictures are 'not so great' this week. In fact, mom Terri had to hold me in her choke hold in some pictures. Try to ignore that human hand in my pictures. She insisted you would want to see my beautiful face. I didn't want mom Terri cleaning my face either, so she put powder on me to try to make me look presentable. I'm sorry. I will do better next week. And soon, you will have me home and I can show you all my tricks for getting OUT of having my picture taken. Love, Your Darling Truffle. P.S. It sure didn't help that my brother had to be such a model today. I almost think he wanted me to look bad!"
Just look at that "diva" look on her face!
And now the collage of Truffle's Week 9 Photos! I think she looks beautiful, even if she didn't want her picture taken.
Then I received the following message from Beignet:
"Dear Mom Paula, I hope you are having fun in San Francisco. I was such a good boy for my photo shoot today. I think you and I are going to have to have a talk with Truffle about how to sit still for pictures though. Mom Terri wanted to take pictures of the two of us together and I was game, but Truffle sure wasn't. Take a look at the attached pictures and be prepared to see the most handsome boy kitty ever! Mom Terri keeps telling me I am going to make you so happy. Cannot wait to get to your house and start our life together. Love, Your Dapper Beignet."
Such a handsome little mancat!
When I see these pictures of Beignet this week, they bring tears to my eyes because I know he'll never get to come home with me and we'll never get to see him grow up with Truffle. This is just one of those things that was "beyond our control" and I have to smile, knowing that I was able to hold and love this little mancat, if just for a little while. Here are his other photos:
I hope everyone has a wonderful week this week and that all of our furriends and their beans along the East Coast are safe from Hurricane Irene.
