The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


Stinky was confused.  This was the week that he would normally go to Periwinkle's house but she told him not to come.  He hoped she wasn't mad at him for some reason or if he got the instructions wrong.  Suddenly, the Teleportation Tunnel shook and, with a WOOOSH,  out flew Periwinkle, right into his paws.

"Whew, I was afraid something was wrong when you told me not to come to your house," said Stinky.  Periwinkle hugged him and said she was sorry he worried but their Adventure was north of Stinky's house so she thought they would meet and go to their destination together.  Stinky smiled and said that sounded like a good plan.  Holding paws, they got into the Teleportation Tunnel together and with another WOOSH, they headed to their Adventure.

"It's nice here and a lot cooler than Florida but I'm confused, we're cats...are we going to learn new skills here?" asked Stinky.   Periwinkle giggled and said they had all the skills they needed and were going to be seeing some very special cats.

Perwinkle explained that every year since 2006 the downtown area has an exhibit called Cat'n Around
Catskill.   Periwinkle explained "The Heart Of Catskill recruits artists and provides them with a white
fiberglass mold of a cat.  One is sitting and one is standing.  Then the artists can use their imaginations."

Paw in paw, the two strolled down the street to see the various kitty creations.  Immediately, Stinky ran over and hopped in a cart that was delivering one of the cats.  "STINKY, come back here" called Periwinkle.  Stinky knew he'd better get back to Periwinkle before he got into trouble.

Holding onto Stinky's paw a little firmer, they continued their walk.   They spotted a gorgeous "Calico" kitty...

They also saw a Space Kitty...

Both tabbies agreed that we could all use more Peace in our lives and Peace Cat was purrfect

They took a selfie with Kindness Cat and agreed more kindness would be nice in the world too.

"Look at this beautiful kitty," said Periwinkle.  "She's pretty but not as pretty as you are" replied Stinky.  Periwinkle blushed but was pleased to hear Stinky say he thought she was pretty.

Unable to stop him, Periwinkle watched while Stinky jumped up to ride the Cowboy kitty.  She sighed but was glad it was pretty safe.

Being patriotic kitties, they did a selfie with the Historic Catskill kitty.

They giggled at Cat Toy and both agreed that this kitty would never get lost under the furniture!!

Saywer wanted a photo with the big Blue kitty since he is one of the Kitties Blue!

They were both getting tired and, even though there were many more cats to see, they took one final photo for the day with Meals On Wheels.

 Thinking about Meals on Wheels made them hungry and they entered the Teleportation Tunnel to head back to Stinky's house.  When they got there, Stinky's Mom gave them a snack of Temptations.  They spent some time snuggling and whisker kissing before taking a nap on the Catio.  When they woke up, Periwinkle visited with Stinky's fursibs and then got back into the Teleportation Tunnel to head home. She blew him a kiss as she left and he went back to the Catio to dream about his special girlfriend.

Here's a video showing how one artist created her cat:

And a couple videos of other years...
