As usual Stinky bounces from paw to paw awaiting the arrival of his girlfriend Periwinkle. He can’t wait to share today’s adventure with her. The moment she tumbles out of the teleportation tunnel he grabs her in his paws and gives her a huge hug and oodles of whisker kisses. He doesn’t even give Periwinkle the opportunity to catch her breath before he grabs her paw and leads her back into the tunnel. Moments later they arrive at their destination.

Visiting a Pumpkin Farm

Periwinkle’s eyes grow wide when she sees their surroundings.

“Stinky, look at all these pumpkins. I’ve always wanted to visit a pumpkin patch. Do we get to take some home?”

“Yes, we do. After we look around and snap some photos of ourselves, we can select a couple to take home.”

“Oh, goody. Do we get to carve them as well?”

“No, Mom said cats cannot use knives. But we do get to draw faces on our pumpkins,” Stinky tells Periwinkle. “Now let’s look around.”

“It sure would be fun to drive this tractor,” Stinky tells Periwinkle.

She agrees, but neither cat is interested in having to move all the pumpkins and hay bales to make it driveable.

From the tractor, the two move on to a photo op with a hay bale disguised as a jack-o-lantern.

“Oh my cat, Stinky what are you wearing?”

“It’s my Frankenstein’s monster mask. But how did you know it’s me?”

“Your red high tops, of course! But please take that mask off. It is really scary.”

Stinky complies, and the tabbies move on to pick out some pumpkins.

“Stinky, there are so many pumpkins to choose from. I don’t know which one I want.” Stinky tells Periwinkle that she can have more than one pumpkin. They just need to make certain the pumpkins are smaller than the size of their tunnel entry.

The tabbies search for quite a while and then select a few pumpkins to take home with them. Not wanting to drag each to the tunnel, Stinky and Periwinkle find a wagon to help with the transport.

Once they load all their pumpkins into the tunnel, Periwinkle and Stinky jump in and with a whoosh take off for Stinky’s house.

Decorating Jack-o-Lanterns

When the tabbies arrive at Stinky’s, they get Stinky’s dad to unload the pumpkins and take them to the catio, while Periwinkle and Stinky have a snack and visit with Stinky’s fursibs.

Then it is time to decorate. Stinky gets permanent markers from his mom and the tabbies begin drawing. When they finish, they show each other and all the other Kitties Blue.

“Periwinkle, your jack-o-lantern is so pretty. Are those flower earring she is wearing?” Stinky asks.

Periwinkle has a twinkle in her eye as she replies,”I am so happy you like it and quite impressed you know the flowers are earrings. I like your design as well. Your jack-o-lantern looks so happy.”

“Thanks, Periwinkle! My design is so much simpler than yours it gave me time to decorate another one. Would you like to see it?”

“Of course, silly,” says Periwinkle.


Periwinkle claps her paws together in delight and gives Stinky an enormous whisker kiss. She tells him, “I love it, Stinky. You are so a romantic!”

After visiting for a while longer, it’s time for Periwinkle to head home. She tells all the Kitties Blue and Stinky’s mom and dad, “good-bye.” She and Stinky spend several minutes sharing whisker kisses and paw hugs. Then Stinky helps her put her jack-o-lantern and his pumpkin for her in the tunnel. With a final wave and whoosh Periwinkle is on her way home.

Stinky retires to the catio for a nap, so he can dream about Periwinkle and another purrfect adventure.

The End

We saw a lady at the store today,and her electric shopping cart had about as many big pumpkins in it as your wagon! She must have read your story/adventure!

We like how you decorated your pumpkins!

A few years ago at petcretary’s work they had a pumpkin decorating contest, and the one that petcretary’s team made won…guess what! They had it turned into a cat! LOL!
