Sad update: Beignet is at the Bridge with Sweet Praline. He passed away halfway through the surgery while under anesthesia. He was only 11 weeks old and all because of a vaccination. This is so sad.
Beignet is facing another surgery today. The results from the pathology report were not good. It appears he had a fast growing Vaccination-Associated Fibrosarcomas (VAS) as the result of his vaccination. This happens rarely (in about 1% of cats), but unfortunately, Beignet fell into that small percentage. I found an article on-line from a vet that explained this type of cancer where the average person can understand it a little better. You can read this article here. We don't know what Beignet's prognosis will be, but Mom Terri will give him a quality life for as long as he remains on Earth. Mom Terri has promised to keep me informed about Beignet. I'm so sad. I love this little mancat. I just don't know what else to say except to please send Mom Terri and Beignet extra strong purrs and purrayers.
If you would like to send Mom Terri a personal message of support, you can email her here.
