The Tabbies Share an Unconventional St. Patrick’s Day
Periwinkle arrived at Sawyer’s with the usual whoosh, as she emerged from her teleportation tunnel. As they shared oodles of whisker kisses, Periwinkle and Stinky were grateful they did not need to practice social distancing.
Sawyer then told Periwinkle they would be staying at his house. “Periwinkle, I had planned a fabulous adventure for us today, which included traveling to Chicago for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and festivities. But everything has been canceled, including dying the river green,” explained Stinky. He continued, “So, I have planned a quiet day at my house.”
“What are we going to do, Stinky?” Periwinkle asked.
“Mom and Dad are lending us their iPads so we can do something our moms enjoy,” replied Stinky.
“Oh boy, are we going shopping on Amazon for treats and toys?” asked Periwinkle.
Stinky chuckled to himself, thinking that Periwinkle was just like any other girl who enjoyed shopping. “No,” he replied. Stinky told her they would be coloring using the Happy Color app on the iPads.
Periwinkle replied, “Well, it sounds a bit boring, but as long as I am with you, I am happy.”
Stinky visibly blushed, but hid that from Periwinkle as he went to get the iPads.
When he returned with the tablets, Stinky also had some fun St. Patrick’s Day hats for them to wear as well as a cloth printed with shamrocks for them to sit on while they colored.
“What would you like to color, Periwinkle?” Stinky asked.
After thinking for a few minutes, Periwinkle asked if there were any lizards on the app.
Stinky replied that he had seen one just a few days ago, and found it for Periwinkle. Then he explained that as they had no thumbs to hold the stylus, they would have to use their paws.
As Periwinkle began dabbing at her picture, Stinky started looking on the other tablet for a picture for himself. Finally Stinky found exactly what he was looking for…a mousie. His mom had already colored it, but he erased that.
He told Periwinkle, “My brofur and I have been stalking a mousie under the stove, but he won’t show himself. It is very frustrating”
As Stinky began tapping at the colors and the picture, Periwinkle told him how she had wanted to bring him the last lizard she caught, but her mom wouldn’t let her. She did share a burry photo of a partially chewed and obviously deceased lizard.
Stinky complimented Periwinkle on her exceptional hunting skills, and it was her turn to blush.
As they continued with their project, Stinky said,”You know, Periwinkle, this is very relaxing. This would be a good pastime for people who are quarantined due to the the virus. It could help keep them occupied and calm.
Periwinkle replied, “That’s a good idea, Stinky.”
At that point, they shared their half-colored pictures with each other.
The coloring went very slowly, and the tabbies chatted about places they would like to go for future adventures. They realized they would probably need to have home or outside adventures for a long while ahead, as they didn’t want to suspend their weekly get togethers.
The tabbies finished their individual pictures and shared them with each other and Stinky’s mom, who praised them for their hard work and beautiful creations.
As they had time before Periwinkle had to depart for home, the tabbies decided to select a simple picture they could color together. They, of course, selected a cat.
“Wow, we work really well together, Stinky,” said Periwinkle.
“We sure do,” he replied.
Periwinkle and Stinky were pretty tired after finishing their coloring and decided to take a nap.
When they woke up, they found that Stinky’s mom had fixed a snack for them of Fancy Feast and some Temptations. Stinky’s food had his meds in it. He didn’t want Periwinkle or his humans to scold him, so he licked his bowl clean. Periwinkle did the same with hers.
After helping each other wash up, it was time for Periwinkle to return home. As usual, among tears, paw hugs and whisker kisses, the two tabbies said their farewells. When Periwinkle entered her tunnel, she turned and both kitties blew kisses at each other.
