“Hi everybody, I’m…,” Stinky, embarrassed, stops in mid-sentence. “Please forgive me, ladies first.”

Blushing, Periwinkle introduces herself and continues, “Hi, I’m Periwinkle and this is my pal, Stinky.”

The two continue in unison, “We are here today to share some pertinent information about ourselves with you prior to embarking on our first adventure next Tuesday. We have asked one of our narrators to fill you in.

As Periwinkle and Stinky aren’t too great at typing, having no thumbs, it has fallen to me and my co-narrator to write about their adventures. To begin, they thought it would be nice if I tell you a bit about them.

Both Periwinkle and Stinky are grey tabby cats and a tad on the right side of two years old. Stinky happens to be a Manx cat, which means he has no tail. This distresses Periwinkle slightly, as it means, he can play with her tail, but she is unable to reciprocate. I am fairly certain Periwinkle will find other ways to annoy Stinky as their adventures unfold.

 In case you are already curious about their unusual names, Periwinkle and Stinky are aliases. They have asked me not to share their given names in the event they might get up to some mischief or shenanigans during their adventures. Personally, I am pleased by this precaution, as I happen to be a family member of Stinky’s, and my co-narrator serves in the same capacity for Periwinkle. The two also are siblings of some well-known Cat Scouts to whom they do not want to bring embarrassment.


Stinky & Periwinkle

Periwinkle & Stinky have selected to wear disguises today to maintain their anonymity.


As an introduction, this is probably enough. You will learn more about Stinky and Periwinkle through their adventures, which will begin right here a week from today. The following adventure will appear on Tuesday (10/22) at Friends Furever. Following that, adventures will alternate between the two blogs on Tuesdays.

“Thanks, Mom…oops, I mean Narrator. Periwinkle and I are anxious to begin our adventures, and we look forward to all our friends joining us! See you next week.”
