The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for June 2016, nya!
Aloha y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! June is such a zestful month here at the Island and the surrounding Atlantic waters of Mew Hanover County, as the seasons change from Spurring (Haru) to Summer (Natsu), nya! With the coastal gardens and the maritime forest full of the colorful blooms under the lush Green arbor & Blue skies, it would be the purrfect time to give that special kitsune the Foxglove bouquet or to give that special dragon girl the Snapdragon corsage for her tail, nya!
June's purrecious gem stones are the Alexandrite, Moonstone and the Purrls, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, taur or fae, then we suggest the suppurr to fill her tummy and win her heart, nya! Since the astrological signs for June are Gemini and Cancer, we purrticularly suggest the twin portions of the crab meat, but the local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the Bass, Bluefish, Cobias, Croakers, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurrs and Tunas, nya!
Fortunately, the bikinis nicely frame the fish-filled tummy, and are comfy to wear for the post-meal catnap, nya! The island's riverwalk boutiques are brimming with the Summer fashions of bikinis, maillots, purreos, sarongs & yukatas for those folks with or without tails, nya! Among the popular styles are the Rose and Honeysuckle purrints to reflect the flowers of the month; the halter neck and backless styles are favored by the fae, vamps, angel and demon girls as not to ride up on the wings, nya!
Of course, there are also the locally - made tops made of naturally deceased jellyfish bells, which are available in various cup sizes, and are purrticularly popular with the mermaids, nya! In addition to the fresh or salt water angling, the activities to catabolize the food calories of June include the belly dance, hula dance. hot salsa dance, yoga, martial arts, kyu-do, golf, tennis, softball, bicycling, purrkour, swmming, diving, surfing, paddling, sailing, and our recreation league beach volleyball, nya!
