If you received this post prematurely, Stinky & Periwinkle apologize. Must have been some Halloween goblins messing with things. Here is the complete post. 


Visiting Walter and the Black Cats

Stinky is more excited than usual as today he and Periwinkle are visiting Walter and the black cats to deliver their annual Halloween “treats.” They visited last week to get Walter’s list of needs, and Stinky knows Periwinkle has been looking forward to delivering the items just as much as he has. As soon as Periwinkle comes tumbling out of the teleportation tunnel, she grabs Stinky’s paw. Without even a hug or a whisker kiss, she pulls him back into the tunnel, so they can get to Walter’s right away.



When they arrive, the two take a moment for some paw hugs and whisker kisses and to admire each other’s costumes, which Stinky has provided.



They notice a huge group of black kitties waiting for them on the back deck and Periwinkle exclaims, “Wow, Stinky, look it is an entirely new group of cats. Let’s go meet them.”


Walter black cats


When the cats see Periwinkle & Stinky, the cat in front speaks up. “All the kitties you met last year have been adopted. We are waiting for our forever homes after Halloween. We will be safe here until then. I was selected to introduce all of us. I am Onyx. The others are Blackie, Sooty, Smokey, Ebony, Coal, Inky, Jet, Raven, Bat Man, Shadow, Pepper, Smudge, Midnight, Ash, Salem and Stormy.”

“Those are such wonderful names,” Periwinkle tells them, and then all the black kitties share head bonks with Periwinkle and Stinky.

The Treats Arrive

Suddenly, all the felines hear multiple whooshes from the teleportation tunnel. When they look, they see numerous wagons filled with supplies come flying out. Instead of pulling the wagons themselves, Stinky had his mom load them after he and Periwinkle left for Walter’s and then send them through the tunnel.



“Holy cow,” gasps Onyx. “This is amazing. You two little cats are so generous. Thank you so much.”

“We cannot take all the credit. The Cat Scouts helped by donating lots of the items,” Stinky tells Onyx and the other cats.

“And the Tabby Cat Club helped as well,” says Periwinkle.

“We are all so lucky,” the black cats proclaim in unison. Onyx then invites Periwinkle and Stinky to come inside to meet the other new residents and have a snack. When they have eaten and visited with all the cats, it is time for Periwinkle and Stinky to head home.

The two tabbies share oodles of paw hugs and head bonks with Walter and the black cats before entering their tunnel.

Upon arriving at Stinky’s house, Periwinkle spends some time visiting with Stinky’s parents and fursibs. Finally it is time for Periwinkle to head back home. She and Stinky share lots of whisker kisses and paw hugs before she enters the tunnel and is gone in a whoosh.

Stinky retires to the catio for a nap and to dream of his beautiful and sweet girlfriend.

The End

Stinky and Periwinkle are participating in the Happy Tuesday blog hop at Comedy Plus.

We checked to make sure Miss BellaDharma from up in Canada hadn’t gotten lost and ended up there. Nope! She’s safe at home. Nice delegation, Stinky, having your Mom pack up and send all the goodies. That way you don’t get tempted to eat them, BOL. At least WE would have been tempted.XOX Lucy, Chia, Xena and Riley

We bet all the kitties were happy! I read an interesting report from the ASCPA the other day that said black cats aren’t actually adopted less from shelters. 30% of cats coming to shelters are black (more than any other color; apparently black is dominant) – and they are adopted at a rate of 31% (actually at a rate higher than other cats). It seems too good to be true. I contacted the authors for more information!
