Aloha Y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! Summertime (Natsu) is waning into the cooler Autumn (Aki) season upon the Autumnal Equinox, but it is still quite the purrennial sunny, clear bikini weather under the rich Blue skies, puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds and lushly Green arbors here at Catgirl Island with the tempurratures generally in the uppurr 80's (furrenheit), except purrhaps in the cooler purristine water of Lake Neko or in the soothing hot spurrings, nya!
September is a rather purrticularly festive month, with many local cultural events throughout the island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, nya!

More widespurread observances include Labor Day, Patriot Day, Grandpurrents Day, Respect for the Aged Day, Peace Day, and the astrological change from Virgo to Libra, nya! The purrecious stone is the sapphire, which would be purrized in the rings, bracelets or piercings, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, centauress or fae, then we suggest the delicious, nutritious seafood suppurr to fill her tummy and win her heart, nya!
Conveniently, our local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of Groupurrs, Snappurrs, Bluefish, Mackerels, Marlins, Mullets, Tunas, Wahoos, Speckled Trout and Striped Bass, nya! In addition to the angling, other fun activities to catabolize the calories include swimming, diving, surfing, sailing, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, hiking, purrkour, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, yoga, kyudo, jujutsu and beach volleyball, nya!
