Periwinkle was glad that Stinky figured out how they could both teleport to the same destination at the same time. She had those same butterflies in her stomach (no, she did not eat any) because her special boyfriend, Stinky was on his way.
WOOOSH and he was there! They spent time hugging and sharing whisker kisses. "I'm glad you wore your hat and scarf because, even though we will be inside, it's COLD" Stinky was intrigued. "What are we doing here? It's a really beautiful building" Periwinkle explained that last week their fursibs Cat Scout Raz and Cat Scout Cooper Murphy watched a video about Antarctica. Both Scouts were disappointed that they didn't really see penguins. "I figured we could visit some penguins today and then show our fursibs the photos we take. The Como Zoo Conservatory has lots of them." Stinky said that was a good idea. "Let's go in," said Periwinkle.
Immediately, both tabbies were excited to be greeted by penguins!
- Penguins can swim up to 15 miles per hour underwater.
- Penguins cannot fly.
- Black-footed penguins can dive up to 100 feet to catch fish.
- Penguin bones are heavier than those of most birds. This helps them dive in the water.
