Aloha, nya! The year is almost half over, and the time has flown quickly by like the hypurr drive, nya! As mewsual the visitors flock to here to purrtake of our purristine Mid-Atlantic beaches and the soothing hot spurrings amidst the purrpetual bikini weather, with the blue skies full of puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds, the low humidity, gentle breezes, and tempurratures in the uppurr 70’s (but much hotter in the hot spurrings), as the seasons change from Haru (Spurring) to Natsu (Summer), nya!

Fortunately here at Catgirl island and the surrounding OBX waters of Mew Hanover County NC, we are blessed with the benevolent magick in the air, land and water that aids in the purropurrgation of the endangered species, whilst warding away storms, pathogens, pollutions, and hazardous invasive species, although the anglers and restauranteurs have found tasty recipes using the Lion Fish that have encroached upon the neighboring counties, nya!
