Remembering Beignet

Thank all of you for your comforting words yesterday for both Terri and me.  Terri wanted me to let everyone know how much all of the emails and comments meant to her.  She said she would send an email to me to post for everyone within the next few days.

I am going to continue to post for a few days about Beignet and hope all of you will enjoy seeing the additional pictures and videos I received from Terri.  This video was during my second visit with them when they were 9 weeks old.  As you can see, Truffle was relaxing on the left, but Beignet was being a little boy and fighting with my fingers!  He was such a sweetie and will be truly missed!



I talked with Terri last night and she said that she let little Elvis (Zoey's little boy) sleep with Truffle last night so she would be comforted.  Both Truffle and Elvis enjoyed Chloe's milk bar and they were curled up together when Terri woke up.  She said that Elvis would continue to stay with Truffle until she comes to live with me.

Paula how about taking little Elvis home with Truffle?

Sorry to hear about Beignet - Him and his little sister always made me smile when you blogged about about them or I saw them on Facebook...

He was a cute little guy taken far far too soon :(

Martin - Little Elvis is already spoken for.

Hey, Mom Paula. Still thinking about you, and crying a little over Beignet. We were really looking forward to watching him and Truffle grow up together.

ppuurrrrrrrss

LCC - I was looking forward to watching them grow up together too, but it wasn't meant to be. Maybe one day in the future, Truffle will have another sibling to play with.

I'm still very sad about little Beignet. It's really so heart-breaking. How nice that Teri is letting Elvis keep Truffle company right now - she must really be missing her brother.

Whisppy said...

So glad Elvis is keeping Truffle company.

Martin Hooper said...

Shame Elvis has a home already... :(

It's sad to think little Truffle is feeling lonely ~ having always been with her adored brother. Is it possible to choose another sibling in beloved baby Beignet's memory?
We did a special remembrance post for Beignet today.
((((((hugs)))))

We were thinking about Truffle missing her brother - we are so pleased Terri let Elvis sleep with her so she wasn't alone.
We are thinking of you too Paula - take care.

What a cute little video; that Beignet sure was a feisty one. He would have given you and Truffle a good time.

"The Boys" and I continue to keep you and Truffle and Terri in our thoughts and purrs. And little Beignet, too.

Beignet was a real mancat-in-training. We're glad Truffle has a buddy to snuggle with until she comes to live with you.

I am glad that sweet Truffle had a snuggle buddy, I've been thinking about her too.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're wondering if Truffle will be happiest as an only kitty or if you might consider another kitten. But maybe things are as they are meant to be? We don't know.

Sending Light and kitty kisses and hugs to you and Terri.

Laila and Minchie said...

That sweet little video got Mom's eyes leakin' again. What a precious little boy Angel Praline has for company. You and Terri are still in our thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))

Cat said...

Sweet little Truffle, we hope she isn't too lonely! Soon she will have your loving arms to comfort her.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

It's good little Truffle has a buddy to ease her transition.

But you know, I think she will be a happy girl to come home with you to her furever home. You will play with her, bond with her and love her through the transition. She's your girl, for sure.

Forever Foster said...

Thank you for sharing the video of Beignet and Truffle. He certainly looked like a boy who lived with a lot of joy in his heart. We are glad to hear that Elvis is there to look out for Truffle until she comes home to you.

Lily Bug Lane said...

Mommy still has leaky eyes about Beignet. She says even though she's never met you, she is very sad for you and Mom Terri and Truffle because she knows what it's like to lose a special furbaby. We are still sending purrs and prayers...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Beignet was a very lucky little kitty in one respect. He never knew anything except love in his young life. But it's sad he had to leave so soon.

SuziQCat said...

I am still in complete shock over the loss of Beignet. I know Sweet Praline is there with him.

He will never be forgotten.

Oh no we are so sorry about sweet little Beignet. We have been away from checking for a few days and were just shocked to see the news. We are so sad for you and for all her family and are sending tons of comforting purrs and prayers. We know that Sweet Praline will take good care of him up at the bridge, but oh, for such a little baby to go is just heartbreaking.

Marg said...

Lots of purrs to Truffles and to Angel Beignet. And big hugs to you Paula. Glad that Truffles has Elvis to keep her company right now. And Paula, she will have you to keep her company when she gets home with you. Lots of good thoughts coming your way.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Jan is right that clearly Beignet knew only love for his short life. We are so sad for his passing but know that it is always quality of life and not quantity and we know his was full--we just wish he could have had more. Now who will comfort you and Truffle?

Cat Mandu said...

Paula, I slept through Wednesday and awoke to this!?!?!
I must say, I have been looking at the Truffle videos, and I personally think she is one special girl! She is full of life and seems to have a wonderful sense of humor. I know you were planning on bringing home 2 fur balls, but I think Truffle is a winner!!

The Crew said...

Aww...poor little guy. He had too short a life, but got plenty of love while he was here.

Father Tom said...

We've had heavy hearts here, Paula and are glad knowing Truffle is being comforted. When she gets home with you, your healing is sure to begin.

You're constantly in our thoughts and prayers.

Mom Paula
It is so hard to make sense out of this, as I guess we are just not supposed to. We still are so sad about Beignet.

midnightbunny said...

*HUGS* Paula. We are just so happy that Truffle is doing well, and cannot wait for her to come to your home to live with you. Beignet will forever be remembered, and who knows ... maybe later on Terri will have more beautiful kittens that may want to come live with you and Truffle and keep you both company. Never say never. :)
