Periwinkle was so excited. It was Tuesday and she was going to see her boyfriend, Stinky! She paced back and forth and put her ear to the Teleportation Tunnel. Stinky was very punctual and right when he was supposed to arrive, she heard the familiar WOOOSH. Stinky tumbled out of the tunnel and flew into her welcoming paws. The tabbies giggled, shared paw pats, headbonks, and whisker kisses.
Stinky looked around the room and gave Periwinkle a surprised look. "Periwinkle, did you do this? There's Halloween stuff all over the place."
Periwinkle laughed and said her Mom took out the Halloween things. "I thought it would be fun for us to decorate together," said Periwinkle. "Mom doesn't usually decorate this early but thought we could all use something to make us smile."
"COOL BEANS," said Stinky. This is going to be fun! The two tabbies got right to work with the decorating. The first thing they did was put out the solar lights to get a good charge on them.
While the lights charged, Periwinkle and Stinky started decorating the fireplace. They had fun with the lights and Periwinkle got tangled in them. Stinky helped her get untangled and the two giggled and shared whisker kisses. Finally, they were happy with their accomplishment.
Next, they put out Auntie El's nutcracker. Periwinkle said she never knew Auntie El but Angel Allie and Raz had told her how she and Mom were best friends. "Periwinkle, are we allowed on the table?" asked Stinky. Periwinkle replied that they were not BUT they were cats and looked cute so her Mom never got mad when they went up there.
"WHOA, this is pretty high," said Stinky. Periwinkle agreed and wondered if anyone would be able to see them in with the black cats. "I sure hope we can go back and visit Walter and the black cats this year," said Periwinkle. Stinky agreed that it was fun meeting them and he hoped they could visit again.
After setting out the lights on the divider, the tabbies put out the big lighted cat and his friends.
One more big cat and a HUGE spider went in the living room.
"Stinky, you are so brave to stand by that big spider," said Periwinkle. "It is a bit scary but I'm okay" he replied. As always, Stinky blushed when Periwinkle told him he was brave. Her opinion of him was very important to him.
All the decorating made them both hungry so they had a snack of Temptations and Fancy Feast on the back deck.
On the way back into the house, they got the solar lights and brought them inside. Periwinkle's Mom made sure it was dark enough for them to be able to see them since Stinky couldn't stay until nighttime.
