The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

 


Standing with her ear to the Teleportation Tunnel, Periwinkle had butterflies in her stomach.  Well, not REAL ones but, as always when she was expecting Stinky, she was excited and just a bit nervous.  Their adventures were always special and she was so happy that Stinky was her boyfriend.

WOOOOSH, there he was!!  They ran to each other and shared whisker kisses, pat pats and headbonks.  They spent some time catching up on the past week.  Thanksgiving was nice, even though it was different for their parents this year.  Finally, Stinky asked Periwinkle what they were doing today?

"We're staying here today if that's okay with you" she replied.  "Sure, are we going to the beach or to see the Manatees?" he asked.  Periwinkle said she hoped he wouldn't be bored but they were actually staying at her house.  "Cool, will we be helping your Mom decorate?" asked Stinky.   Periwinkle said most of that was done and they had a very important message to get out today.  Always civic-minded, Stinky was super happy when he heard what they were doing.



Periwinkle explained that today is Giving Tuesday.  Giving Tuesday started in 2012 and is a day where people can either donate, volunteer or help a neighbor.  Even sharing a smile with a stranger is giving.
Today, she told him, they were going to share some rescues and shelters that our pals might want to help out.  "How did you make up the list?  There are so many worthy places" asked Stinky.  Periwinkle said that she made a list of some of the shelters and rescues that friends who won comment-a-thons had suggested.   "Great idea!" he replied.

First, let's share the site for our pals at PAWS in CT.  Most of you know our friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life.   They feature lots of adoptable kitties on their blog.


Of course, as Tabby Cats, we have to share Tabby's Place!  You can donate or you can Sponsor a cat waiting for adoption.  The Island Cats picked Tabby's Place when they won in 2018!


Alley Cat Allies would be another good choice.  They do a lot to help feral cat colonies.


Cathy Keisha picked a shelter that was dear to her heart when she won.  Union City Feral Ca Committee



One time Timmy won and he picked Kitty Cottage!  Another time Angel Sammy won and he picked Fauquier SPCA where his Mom and Dad adopted him from and then Teddy.  Periwinkle said her brofur Raz came from Space Coast Feline Network.   "Wow Periwinkle, there are lots of great places to donate, aren't there?  I'll bet any of these would appreciate a donation," said Stinky.  Periwinkle agreed and said she was sure there were tons more.  

Both tabbies were getting hungry so they headed out to their favorite spot by the pool for a snack of Temptations and Fancy Feast.


They giggled and held paws while they snacked.   Both Stinky and Periwinkle were excited about Santa coming and talked about the decorations in each of their houses.  Stinky visited with Periwinkle's Mom and brofur Raz for a bit and then headed to the Teleportation Tunnel to return home.  "This was fun!  I hope we helped someone decide to donate today!"  Periwinkle agreed and they both were grateful that they found their Furever families without having to live in a shelter.  Then, with a WOOSH, off he went!  Periwinkle smiled and hoped somebody who read their adventure would do something special for #GivingTuesday!

Monday Sparks

 Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Our Spark for today is an inspiration for the start of December tomorrow!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

 Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats



Today's photo prompt is


Brilliant Lights
Looking down from the Space Station
Each Astronaut looks at their own Nation/
Amazed at the blazing lights.
Shining bright in the night.
What could it be?
They can't believe what they see.
Such a massive amount of lights
They can be seen from this height.


Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


Being Thanksgiving, we are even more THANKFUL for our friends, our family and all of YOU who come by to visit and support us in good times and bad.


We're also missing our Daddy today.   In his honor, Mom is going to cook the turkey on the Big Green Egg.  We sure hope it works!!

Sunday Selfies

 We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today. 




Since Raz and Mr. Turkey did a selfie last week, I decided to take one with Mr Turkey too.  I still haven't gotten the technique of facing the camera but I am working on it.  Mr Turkey is obviously a pro at selfies!

Sawyer, want to come hang out with me and Mr. Turkey?
