After sharing whisker kisses, paw pats and catching up on the previous week, Stinky told Periwinkle he had confirmed their Adventure for the day. Holding paws, they headed out. They were more confident of their destination this time. They giggled about how they got lost the first time they were here because Periwinkle left her phone and GPS at home.

Soon they came upon the familiar house. As always, lots of bright and curious eyes were staring out at them.
Unlike the first time they visited, this time they weren't scared. They were super excited to see their friends again. They ran up to the door and rang the bell.
Their friend, Walter, answered the door and they could hear all the meows behind him saying "YAY! Periwinkle and Stinky are here!" Walter and all the residents gathered around the tabbies and they spent time hugging and laughing. It was so good to see everyone again.
They were about to visit some of their buddies when Periwinkle let out a big "SQUEEE" and ran over to see the newest kittens that were born at the house.
Both Periwinkle and Stinky asked about the kittens that they met last year and were told that they all got loving homes but came back to stay with the other black cats for Halloween to make them feel safer. Right then they heard lots of meowing and some of their buddies from last year came by. Stinky ran over to them and made Periwinkle and the others laugh when he said "Hey, do you think anyone will spot me?" Periwinkle told him that, in spite of the great blep, she was pretty sure nobody would think he was a black cat!
Walking around the house, they stopped to chat with Eddie, the guard cat. Eddie told them that he kept watch to make sure nobody who wanted to do bad things to black cats got anywhere near the house.
Periwinkle and Stinky sat down with Walter and told him that, once again, they were doing a fundraiser to make sure the black cats had everything they needed. "You two are such special tabbies to do so much for us. We really appreciate everything you do to help us." Periwinkle wrote down the things Walter said they needed. Walter explained and anything at all was helpful. He knew prices were up and that cat food was hard to find. "Don't worry Walter, we will do our best to get you the things you need" said Stinky.
Soon it was time for the tabbies to say goodbye to their friends. They told Walter they would get as much as they could from the wishlist. With more hugs and pawpats, Periwinkle and Stinky headed back to Stinky's house.
"I have a little surprise for you," said Periwinkle. She knew Stinky would be hungry and brought a snack for them to have. She said, "Remember how we stopped here on our first visit?"
They enjoyed their snack and went back to Stinky's house. They decided to try on their Halloween costumes to see if they still fit.
"Periwinkle, you look great! I'm so lucky to have such a pretty and sweet girlfriend" said Stinky. Periwinkle blushed and told Stinky she thought she was the lucky one to have such a handsome boyfriend. Stinky blushed too.
They visited with Stinky's fursibs and parents and spent some time whisker kissing and paw patting. They even fell asleep and had a quick nap. When they woke up it was time for Periwinkle to leave. With a WOOOSH, Periwinkle was on her way home. There was a lot to do to get everything on Walter's wishlist.
