A Surprise Visit

Periwinkle tumbles from the teleportation tunnel with a confused expression on her face. As Stinky is helping her up, she asks, “Stinky, what am I doing here? I thought our adventure isn’t happening until Thursday. And why are we dressed in our fancy clothes?”

Stinky happily tells her, “We have a big announcement to make, and if we make it today, we also can remind our readers to come back Thursday for our adventure.”

“So what are we announcing?”


Cartoon tabby cats dressed in formal wear with a sign that says, Happy Tuesday Announcement.


The Announcement

“For the third year in a row, my mom entered us in the Cat Writers’ Association Annual Contest. And we received two Certificates of Excellence in the Short Form – Fiction Category. She entered ‘The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky: Part LXXXI,’ which is when we visited the eagles on the Discover the James’ Bald Eagle Tour.

“Oh, Stinky, that was a really great adventure. Some of those birds were bigger than we are. What was the second adventure for which we were recognized?”

“It’s for when we went on our fishing trip with Cooper Murphy and Tyebe, ‘The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky: Part LXXVII,’” Stinky tells Periwinkle.

Periwinkle claps and hops up and down. “I loved that we could share that adventure with your brofur, Cooper, and his girlfriend. I’m really happy the judges also enjoyed it! Did your mom get any additional certificates?”

“Yes, she did. But I’ll let her mention it in a different post,” Stinky replies.

“Stinky, This has been so much fun to let everybody know about our certificates, but I am really looking forward to our adventure on Thursday. It is going be epic.”

Stinky gives Periwinkle a huge paw hug and agrees with her. As the tabbies have completed their announcement, it’s time for Periwinkle to teleport home and rest up for Thursday. Periwinkle and Stinky share lots of whisker kisses and say their good-byes. Periwinkle enters the teleportation tunnel, gives Stinky a final wave and is gone in a whoosh.
