The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

Periwinkle woke up early that morning because she knew this was the day Stinky was coming over for an Adventure.  It seemed like FOREVER since their last visit.  She had so much fun writing limericks with Stinky. 

Periwinkle put her ear next to the Teleportation Tunnel and was so happy to hear the familiar WOOOSH!   Just in time, Periwinkle stepped back and out flew Stinky!   The two rushed to each other and shared hugs and whisker kisses.  "How are you feeling today?" asked Periwinkle.  She knew he had had three seizures the week before.   "Mom says I am doing okay but not to do anything too strenuous" replied Stinky.  Periwinkle said they were going to have a fun time but it wouldn't require too much effort for either one of them.  She said they were lucky that the place they were going to had re-opened the previous week. Holding paws, they entered the Teleportation Tunnel.

In the blink of an eye, they got to their destination., The Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

"This looks like a cool place" said Stinky.   Periwinkle said she wanted to take him to her local Zoo but they had not opened yet.

The two decided to see some of the animals first and then head to the butterfly garden.

Periwinkle giggled as the giraffe gave her a slurpy kiss.  Stinky wouldn't admit it, but he was a bit jealous!

"Hey Periiwnkle, this guy looks scary but he's really sweet and friendly," said Stinky

Both tabbies giggled when they saw this otter being goofy!

Periwinkle explained that they could take the train to the other areas of the zoo.  Being a ManCat, Stinky was excited to ride the train.

Their first stop on the train was the splash pad playground.  Since neither Periwinkle or Stinky wanted to get their paws or furs wet, they only spent a short time there.

Let's sit for a while said Periwinkle.  She didn't want Stinky to get too tired.  They found a beautiful Swan sculpture to relax by.

After a short rest, Stinky spotted the big chessboard.  "Come on Periwinkle, let's play chess,"  Periwinkle said she had no idea how to play but they two decided to investigate it anyway.

It was time to leave to go back to Periwinkle's house so the two had a memory photo taken.

Holding paws, they stepped into the Teleportation Tunnel to head to Periwinle's house.  Periwinkle's Mom fixed them a snack of Fancy Feast and Temptations and the two sat on the deck by the pool and enjoyed their snack and being with each other.  They held paws and shared whisker kisses between each bite.  They didn't want the day to end.

Finally, it was time for Stinky to go home. After a short visit with Periwinkle's fursibs, Sinky entered the Teleportation Tunnel to return home.  Allie, Periwinkle's sisfur, gave Periwinkle a big hug because she knew how sad Periwinkle was for the day to end.  "Don't feel bad, Periwinkle" Allie said.  "Next Tuesday will be here before you know it!"  Periwinkle hugged her sisfur back, wiped a tear and headed to her Ham-mick to dream about her special guy.

I absolutely loved our adventure today Periwinkle. It was nice to get away from all this rain, and the animals were so cool, especially that otter. Hope we can visit my zoo sometime soon. I have never been there. The days we spend together are the best days I have. Thank you. Purrs, paw-pats and whisker kisses, Stinky šŸ’–šŸ’“❣️
