The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for June 2021, nya! 
This year is our site’s 21st anniversary, nya!

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, 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!

Speaking of which, the local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of delicious, nutritious Snappurrs, Groupurrs, Stripurrs, Croakers, Wahoos, Bluefish and Mackerels to tempt one’s tummy, nya! In addition to the angling, to catabolize the calories we balance purrolonged catnaps with athletic purrsuits such as purrkour. surfing, sailing, swimming, diving, golf, tennis, softball, cycling, skating, hiking, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kite flying, jujutsu, kyudo, yarnball lacrosse, spurrlunking and beach volleyball, nya!

The gardens are abloom with azaleas, gingers, heliconias, anthuriums, hydrangeas, hibiscus, appurricots, azaleas, dogwood, cherry, roses, bromeliads, magnolias, morning glories, irises, lotuses, foxgloves, snapdragons, pansies, yellow bells, and bird of purradise, nya! The Rose and Honeysuckle are the birth flowers for June; whilst the Alexandrite, Moonstone and Purrls are the birth stones, nya. The star signs  for June are Gemini then Cancer, which would be the appurropurriate time for the savory crabcakes, nya! 

Among the holidays, observances and commeowmerations her are Purride Month, the Summer Solstice, Fathers Day, Flag Day, Juneteenth, Yoga Day, Surfing Day, Kamehameha Day, Sushi Day, our local Yosakoi Matsuri, Honeysuckle and Rose Purrades, nya! The local boutiques have the purretty appurral, such as the bikinis, maillots, purreos, sarongs, hijabs, sarees, ao dais, sun dresses, kimonos, yukatas, gi, fundoshi, hakama, shorts, tee shirts, halter tops, lingerie, robes, athletic bras, sandals, towels and wet suits, nya!

The backless and halter - neck styles are recommended for winged folks, and be sure to specify if you purrfur the garment to have the tail-ored opening for the tail, tentacles, wings or fins, nya! The Far Mers market also has re-stocked the translucent bikini bras which are sustain-ably mer- made from the bells of naturally - deceased, locally - caught jellyfish in the numerous iridescent colors and cup sizes, mew la la, nya! After the shopping, dining, catnaps, sight seeing and playtime, purrhaps y’all might like to see

the latest additions to Catgirl Island’s Mewseum of Art, nya!

Here y’all will find the many annotated illustrations and photographs, nya! Galleries 1-8 display images by our purrducer Mike Moon, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-5 display images by other folks with their purrmissions, nya. Mike’s collaborations with other artists are peppurred throughout the mewseum, nya!

Some of the images are sexy, and some might depict artistic nudity, but most are tame and none are hentai / porn, nya! The most recent pics are the lowermost row of the cropped widdle “thumbnail” sized portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full images, nya.

In Gallery Three we have added “Captain Joe’s Love Monkey Factory”, nya! This was Mike’s pen & ink birthday gift art to our friend ob1’s great kid, who imagined how a favorite valentine monkey plushy doll might be manufactured, nya. The purrocess was envisioned as the one-purrson opurration in the small office space full of fun stuff and interesting objects, so  the scene is brimming with the “easter eggs” aplenty, nya!

 Culture Vultures” is Mike’s latest illustration of author Sharon Williams’s fan-senshi character Tanya Lostris Cambridge a.k.a. Sailor Sirius (left), and author Jeff Branch’s fan - senshi character Talia Jasmine Kirk a.k.a. Sailor Vulcan (right), nya! Talia and Tanya visited us in February to attend our annual awards ceremony, nya! This latest image of them was Jeff’s idea, in which they are exploring the Catgirl History Mewseum, which Mike depicted with Photoshop on the Mac with the mouse, nya! 

we are delighted to display photos of the pretty “Sailor Christmas Doll” by Alexcia Reynolds who was a guest of the August 2010 Mew, nya! Using the Irwin Sailor Jupiter 10” doll, Alexcia made this OOAK (one of a kind) mod of her fan-senshi character Sailor Christmas, nya!

Nextly we are elated to exhibit the “Happy Little Mushroom” by Rebecca Brogden, who was the guest for our September 2009 Mew nya! Rebecca used Procreate with the Apple Pencil upon the Apple Ipad Pro for this this peppy cute pic, which puts the fun in the fungi as part of her recent “Cute Series" nya!

Done with the same tools, “Above the Clouds is Rebecca’s chibi-style pic of our friend Dr. Lauwinekaranga, the Turquoise Dragon Girl who is the purrofessor of sports purrformance, health & fitness at Mew Hanover College, nya! Y’all can see this pic’s time lapse art purrocess video at Rebecca’s Youtube Channel!

Then we are purroud to purresent four pen & ink illustrations by Melody Rondeau, nya! She and her husband Jim have illustrated, written & published fanzines, and are the purropurrietors of Make It Go Away which sells the fanzines, magazines, comics, books, games, plushy dolls, videos, movie & TV memorabilia, nya!

These four illustrations depict the felinoid folks of various historical purriods, such as the saber-toothed primal people of the “Prehistoric” age; the more opulantly attired citizens of “The Byzantine Era”, the purritanical pilgrims and ostentacious aristocracy of the “The Colonial Period”, and the groovy hippy nekomimi of “The Swinging Sixties”, nya! It is also time for

the June 2021 edition of The Mew, nya!

The Mew is short for The Catgirl Critics’ Media Mewsings, our local monthly “show” in which The Ladies of the Mew and Mike discuss fun stuff and occasionally intermew the special guests, nya! Most months’ mews are compurrised of reviews of toys, comics, books, cinema & TV; plus the occasional intermews with special guests, monthly Lightning Round topic and the Celebrity Catgirl / Kemonomimi Spotlight, nya! Please note that The Mew has moved to its new home at, nya!
