Purrs for Beignet

I need to go out of sequence for today's post because Beignet had to have surgery yesterday.  He developed a lump after his first vaccination and it was growing, so the vet recommended its removal immediately.  The lump was about 3 cm in diameter and it was near the surface of the skin.  The vet feels everything is going to be okay, but Terri insisted it be sent off for testing.  If everything comes back negative and additional vet consults reveal he will be okay, Truffle and Beignet's arrival may be delayed for 7-10 days until after we see how he reacts to the second vaccination.  This was really scary for me today because it's so close in time to losing Praline to cancer.  I'm praying that he will be fine and that I'll still be able to bring him home to live with me and his sister, Truffle.

Terri sent this video tonight to show me that he was doing fine and eating well.  Please keep Beignet and me in your purrs and prayers.  I'm a wreck!

We are purring our biggest purrs for Sweet Beignet - he is so tiny but we are sure all will be well - he didn't look bothered about his surgery looking at him tucking into his dinner. We are sorry you are going through this Paula but we are certain everything will be fine and you'll soon have him and Truffle home with you.

We're sending our loudest purrs to Beignet, crossing our paws everything will be okay. Poor sweetie! Vaccinations can be scary, and of course while kittens need them, they're overdone in adults, our mom thinks.

Please keep us updated!

Oh Paula, we are sending tons and tons of purrs to Beignet. I bet you are a wreck. It brought tears to mom's eyes just hearing about it. Those darn shots, don't know if they are bad or good. We know he is going to be just fine though. We are sending you lots of hugs too.Take care.

Kjelle Bus said...

Oh so sorry to hear that you Beignet got a lump after your vaccination too :(
I got a "big" lump after my rabiesshot that the vet removed it and sent the lump for further testing. Mine was a "good" lump and I heal up real fine :)

"The Boys" and Karen said...

Oh, Paula. "The Boys" and I are so sorry to learn about Beignet's lump. Of course, we'll keep him and you in our prayers, and send along lots of purrs, too.

Well, the good news is that Terri caught the lump right away so the vet could quickly take care of it.

I am so sorry to hear this! My goodness -- one doesn't expect something like this in a tiny kitten!

We are purring very hard for everything to be fine.

Beignet certainly looks unphased in this video, and eating well. I think that is a very good sign.

I'm sure that Sweet Praline is looking over him and will protect him for you.

Heal quickly, little one!

Good news that your breeder was aware and that it was caught immediately. Watching the video Beignet seems to be bouncing right back. Many many prayers right now to you and Beignet and Truffle.

midnightbunny said...

Thank goodness the breeder keeps close attention to everything going on with the kittens. I am sure Beignet will be fine and make a full recovery from the surgery. Soon both Truffle and Beignet will be ready to come home with you. I know it must be difficult not having them with you daily right now to care for. The good thing is, you have an excellent breeder that is caring very well for them right now. :) :) *HUGS*

Sending healing purrs for that tiny little bundle of love! Looks like his appetite is good, and that helps the healing process. XXXOOO

Daisy said...

Poor little Beignet! It must be so hard not to have him home with you where you can cuddle and comfort him.

Tia said...

Paula, I'm so sorry to hear this. Did he have the Leukaemia vaccine? Sometimes that can cause sarcomas in cats. If this is the case, I'd be asking Terry to have him injected into the skin of his chest or into the back leg. That's what good vets do over here as it's easy to remove the lump if anything goes wrong. So sorry to hear that you're going through this.

Derby, Ducky said...

Poor little guy, having his furs shaved off. Healing purrs coming your way.

Angel and Kirby said...

Poor Baby! We know you will be on pins and needles till you get all of the tests back. We are sending Beignet and you lots of purrs!

Poor thing! Purrs and hugs!
