The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky: Part XIII

The moment Periwinkle emerged from the teleportation tunnel at Stinky’s house, he grabbed her by the paw and started to whisper in her ear.

“Periwinkle, we have a special project today for our adventure. We are hosting my big brother, Cooper Murphy’s, Gotcha Day Party. And we have no time to spare.”

Periwinkle replied, “Ooh, that sounds like fun. What do we need to do?”

“We need to decorate the room, select the food and arrange for the caterer, make certain Mau has a cake ready, order some flowers, invite all Cooper’s friends (especially Tyebe) from our blog, Cat Scouts and the TCC.” said Stinky.

“Stinky, that sounds like a lot of work. Do you think we can manage all that by ourselves?” Periwinkle asked.

“Sure, but we need to start right away,” said Stinky”

“Okay, what do we do first?” 

Stinky said, “Make the invitation.”

“I can do that,” volunteered Periwinkle.

“Great, I’ll go arrange for the cake and food.”

Periwinkle returned very quickly with an invitation in her paws. “I have it, Stinky. What do you think?” she asked.



“It is purrfect. Do you want to get started on the flowers?”

“Oh, yes, please. I love flowers,” replied Periwinkle.

Again, she returned very quickly.



“Periwinkle, are you in there somewhere?” asked Stinky.

“Oh yes! Do you like these? I thought it would be nice to have flowers to match Cooper’s furs.”

“Of course, they are fabulous. Your selections are purrfect.”

Periwinkle giggled and purred and winked at Stinky.

“I arranged the food while you were doing the invitation and the caterers are delivering it now,” said Stinky.




“Stinky, this is an amazing feast. I cannot wait to try everything.”

“I’ll fix you a plate as soon as we change into or party clothes,” replied Stinky, and added, “I don’t think Cooper will mind.”

As Stinky and Periwinkle ran off to change, Periwinkle asked Stinky if he thought it would be okay if they wore their New Year’s Eve outfits and 2020 glasses.  Stinky told her that he was certain Cooper Murphy wouldn’t mind.

They were having a snack when Cooper entered the room.

“Hey, what’s all this?” asked Cooper Murphy.

The two tabbies ran forward holding the card they had made in their paws, and yelled, “Happy Gotcha Day, Cooper Murphy!



“Cooper, we have another card for you as well,” Stinky told him.



“Oh my cat, I am overwhelmed. This is the best Gotcha Day ever!” said Cooper Murphy.

“It’s not over yet,” said Stinky.

Periwinkle added,”Mau baked you a special cake, and we have invited all your friends to spend the day.” Then she ran off to get the cake.



Cooper couldn’t believe his eyes, and asked shyly, “Is that supposed to be Tyebe on my cake?”

The tabby youngsters started clapping and jumping up and down and answered, “Yes, do you like it?”

“Oh yes, thank you so much and thanks to Mau as well,” replied Cooper.

“We are so happy you like everything. Now let’s party,” said Periwinkle and Stinky in unison.

As the party would continue into the night, Periwinkle had received permission from her mom to stay over night and would return home on the morning.

The End


Happy Gotcha Day, Cooper Murphy

With love, Mom, Dad, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Sawyer
