Bird & Squirrel Watching
With the usual whoosh, Periwinkle comes flying out of the teleportation tunnel right into Stinky’s waiting paws. She is excited to find out his plan for today’s adventure and gives him some paw hugs and a huge whisker kiss!
Stinky is a little concerned, as he thinks she will find today’s adventure really lame. “I checked the calendar and all the web-sites for things to do in Virginia and came up with nothing. Last year, our adventure day fell on Cooper Murphy’s Gotcha Day. Do you remember the surprise party we gave him?” asks Stinky.
“Oh yes,” replies Periwinkle, and asks, “Are we going to do that again?”
“I did consider it, but his Gotcha Day isn’t until the 7th,” replies Stinky.
Periwinkle looks a little sad, as she remembers what fun they had last year. “So what’s up then?” she asks.
Stinky explains that his little sisfur, Kizmet, has just discovered the birds and squirrels outside the kitchen window. Thinking of that, he’s decided that he and Periwinkle would do some bird and squirrel watching.
Periwinkle thinks that sounds like a fun idea but wants to know why they don’t go out to the catio to watch. Stinky tells her they can for a short time, but it is much colder than she is accustomed to in Florida, so they will do much of their watching from inside the house.
Periwinkle grabs his paw, and tells Stinky to lead the way.
When they arrive in the kitchen, they find Kizmet already in place at the window watching a squirrel. She appears to be stalking it.
Periwinkle whispers to Stinky, “She sure is cute Stinky. Do you like her?”
“Yeah, I think so,” he replies. Stinky goes on, “She likes to chase me and thinks she can sleep in my place on the bed, but she’s always happy and nice. If you really want to see how we get along, make certain you check out the Wordless Wednesday post tomorrow.”
Periwinkle then asks Kizmet if she likes her new home. Kizmet answers by giving Periwinkle a nose boop and purring enthusiastically. The two girls start chatting about their brofurs.
Exasperated with all the chit chat, Stinky suggests they zip it and do a bit of critter watching. Periwinkle gives him a hard nudge and frown for being insensitive. Stinky blushes and apologizes, and the three kitties settle down for an afternoon of bird and squirrel watching.
“Wow, I can’t believe that squirrel came right up on the other side of the window like that,” exclaims Periwinkle.
“Yeah, the squirrels here are pretty cheeky,” says Stinky.
Stinky, Periwinkle and Kizmet fall quiet and just watch the squirrel, now on the bird feeder, from the window .
“That guy is quite the acrobat, isn’t he?” says Periwinkle.
Stinky nods and invites Periwinkle to go out on the deck for a few minutes. She’s anxious to go out and asks if Kizmet is going to join them.
“Not today. She did run out to the catio from the kitchen for the first time yesterday but didn’t stay. And we are going just outside the catio,” replies Stinky.
“I cannot believe that guy doesn’t freak out and run off,” says Periwinkle.
“They are not afraid of anything,” replies Stinky.
After Mr. Squirrel leaves, Stinky and Periwinkle sit outside for just a while longer looking at the birds, but soon grow cold and go back inside. After a snack and a quick visit with Stinky’s mom and dad and fursibs, it is time for Periwinkle to head back home.
At the teleportation tunnel, Periwinkle tells Stinky, “I had a fabulous time. I think this was a wonderful adventure. And I loved getting to know your new sisfur better. She is sure sweet and cute too!”
Stinky takes Periwinkle’s paws in his and whispers to her, “But not as sweet or cute as you!” They share many whisker kisses and paw hugs before Periwinkle finally enters the tunnel for her trip home. The two share a final wave and with a whoosh Periwinkle is whisked away.
Stinky searches the house for a sunpuddle where he can snooze and dream of his Periwinkle.
