THE ADVENTURES OF PERIWINKLE & STINKY: PART CCXXII

Stinky is excited that Tuesday has finally arrived, and he will be seeing his girlfriend Periwinkle. He is planted next to the teleportation tunnel ready to catch Periwinkle when she comes tumbling out. He doesn’t have to wait long, as Periwinkle is right time to begin the day’s adventure. With the familiar whoosh she tumbles from the tunnel into Stinky’s waiting paws. They spend several minutes whisker kissing and paw hugging.

Bird Brain Cardinal*

Stinky is waiting for Periwinkle to ask what he has planned for this adventure. Instead she asks if she can see the bird-brained cardinal outside the bathroom window. Stinky giggles, takes Periwinkle’s paw and leads her to the bathroom where they find Kizmet is in her usual bird-watching spot and the cardinal pecking on the window. Periwinkle hops up with Kizmet to check out the birdie.

“Stinky, that is the silliest bird I have ever seen. Do you think he has a concussion and his brain is scrambled?” Periwinkle asks Stinky.

“Who knows what is going on with that silly bird. I think my mom or dad need to do some investigating on the internet.”

Finally, the inevitable question comes, “What have you planned for today, Stinky?”

“Well, we are staying at home again, but before I tell you what we are doing, I wanted to share some news with you. My mom is working on a landing page for us with links to all the adventures I have taken us on. She says it is lots of work, but she promises to get it done soon.”

Periwinkle claps her paws. “That is wonderfully good news, Stinky. I hope when it is finished, our readers will check out
some of the adventures they might have missed. So, now are you going to tell me what we are doing?”

Adventure in A.I.

“Yes, I am. I have been watching my mom make some really fun pictures with A.I., and I know your mom has made some as well. It looks like lots of fun, so I asked if we could try our paws at creating some. My mom said, ‘Yes!'” And any we make that we like, we can turn into jigsaw puzzles for our friends.”

“Stinky, I like your idea. It sounds like oodles of fun,” says Periwinkle.

“Oh, I am so happy you like my suggestion. Would you like to go first. We are going to use the A.I. generator in piZap, as that is the one my mom is familiar with using.”

“Okie dokie, I’d love to go first. What should I do?”

“You just need to tell my mom what you want, and she will type it into piZap’s dialog box. I’ll go get her.”

When Stinky’s mom arrives, Periwinkle tells her that she wants three cats in fancy dresses and tiaras having a tea party at a table with a dining room blurred in the background. Sawyer’s mom types in the directions, and she and the kitties wait to see what they’ll get. Very quickly, the picture appears.

“Wow, Periwinkle, you are a pro at this. That came out fantastic,” gushes, Stinky. “Now it is my turn.” Stinky tells his mom that since she and his dad ride a tandem bicycle, he wants to make a picture with two cats riding one. He gives her additional details for the picture, and then the tabbies wait again to see the results.

“Stinky, that is so cute, but the kitties do look a bit funny. They don’t have any ears,” exclaims Periwinkle.

“Probably inside their helmets,” Stinky replies.

“My turn again,” claims Periwinkle. “I want something to represent me being from Florida.” She then tells Stinky’s mom what to type. Again, the three have very little time to wait, and they have their picture.

Cat with Flamingo Floatie

“Oh, that is meowvolous,” Stinky tells Periwinkle. “It’s you lounging in a swimming pool. My turn again. Since my Dad is involved with volleyball, I want cats playing volleyball,” he tells his mom.

When the picture is done, they all have a good laugh!

Stinky asks his mom if he and Periwinkle can each make one more, and she agrees. Periwinkle thinks for quite a little while prior to deciding and describing what she wants.

Scouting Cats

When the picture appears, Stinky is tickled, but Periwinkle looks disappointed. Stinky asks her why.

“I asked for three orange tabby cats, one brown tabby cat and one black and white cat to represent Teddy, Cooper Murphy and Angel Sammy as well as Angel Mau and Angel Raz, but it didn’t get the colors right,” says Periwinkle through a pout.

“Periwinkle, it is still totally adorable, and the idea was purrfect,” Mom Janet exclaims and gives Periwinkle a hug. She then asks Stinky to describe the last picture he wants, which he does.

When Periwinkle and Mom Janet see the completed picture, they both have a good laugh.

Dog on Trial

“Stinky, you are so funny. That poor woofie doesn’t have a chance at a fair trial with a cat as the judge. Are we going to make our puzzles now?” asks Periwinkle.

“My mom will do it for us and add them to the post,” replies Stinky.

“It’s such a pretty day here, Stinky, can we go out on the catio and have a snack?” asks Periwinkle.

“Of course, let’s go!”

While Periwinkle and Stinky enjoy a snack on the catio and visit with Stinky’s fursibs, Mom Janet loads up their jigsaw puzzles.

Unfortunately, the time arrives when Periwinkle must return home. The two tabbies spend time by the teleportation tunnel whisker kissing, paw hugging and giggling about some of the pictures they created. Finally, with a blown kiss and a wave, Periwinkle enters the tunnel and is gone in a whoosh. Stinky heads to the bedroom for a nap and dreams of his beautiful girlfriend.
