The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for August 2017, nya!

Aloha Y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! August is such a zestfully pleasant month here at Catgirl Island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, where we are so blessed by the beauty of the purristine shores, coastal gardens and the maritime forest, with the tempurrature in the mid 80's under the big puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds in the Blue Summer sky, nya! 

The zodiac signs for August are Leo and Virgo, and the purrecious stones of the month are the Onyx and the Purriodote, which would be purrized in the rings or piercings or in the bracelet for the wrist, ankle or tail, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special someone, we suggest the purretty Poppy which is the August flower, or purrhaps the yummy seafood suppurr nya!

Fortunately our local fishing forecast purrdicts another bumpurr crop of the delicious, nutritious Bluefish, Croakers, Flounders, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Cobias, Snappurrs, Wahoos, oysters, shrimp and scallops, nya! Of course, if you crave the fresh organic local purroduce, the island's farmers market has strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, yams and honey aplenty, nya!

In addition to the angling, the island's fun activities to catabolize the Summertime calories include the belly dance, hula dance. hot salsa dance, martial arts, kyu-do, beach volleyball, golf, tennis, softball, bicycling, hiking, purrkour, spurrlunking, swmming, diving, surfing and sailing, nya! Make sure to find the comfy spot for the catnap after the vigorous athletic purrsuits, nya!

August is the purrticularly festive month, with our Belly Dance and Purrcussion Festival at the Purrforming Arts Center, the Fire Festival by the shrine, the Summer Shakespeare and Foxfire Fiesta at the Forest Grove Ampurrtheatre, the Floating Lantern Matsuri at the riverwalk, the O-Bon Dance in beautiful downtown Purrbank, and the Poppy Purrade down Cait Sith Lane, nya! 

We also recommend the destinations such as the stadium, dojo, spa, yoga studio, the lake, hot spurrings, our public library, visitors center, farmers market, the parks, gardens, various shopping and dining venues, and the many merfolk attractions in the Mid-Atlantic waters that surround our island here in Mew Hanover County, NC, nya! Purrhaps y'all might also like to  see 

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

For those who might be here for the first time, Galleries 1-8 of The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-4 display images by other folks totally with their purrmissions, and Mike's collaborative images with other artists can be found throughout the mewseum, nya! The images include illustrations, photos, and the mixed medias, nya!

Some of the images are quite sexy, but none are hentai, nya. On Catgirl Island's official web site, the most recent pics will be 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 pics, nya! This month we have added new images to Guest Gallery 4 and to the freshly opened Gallery 8, nya!

we are purroud to purrsent "Up High" by Rebecca Brogden, nya! She used the pencil, pen & colored pencils on the toned papurr to illustrate the gorgeous fox girl in the purretty ruffled short dress who is nervously purrched high atop the large rocks, nya! We hope that she will bravely, safely overcome the purrdicament of the height, nya!

Nextly we are delighted to display the scene that is closer to the ground where a catgirl is "Waiting", nya! Rebecca used the pencil, pen & colored pencils on the toned papurr to illustrate the beautiful catgirl in the alluring off - shoulder dress with the slit skirt and the thigh - high boots that match her tight corset, nya! We wonder who or what she is expecting by the tree, but it seems to be the rather pleasant wait, nya!

Then we have Rebecca's fan art of DC Comics’s Selina Kyle, alias the "Catwoman, nya! It is sunset upon Gotham City, as she meowrrily spurrings and whips across the Gotham City rooftops with the purrloined purrecious jewels, nya! Purrhaps she took them from a wealthy criminal, to help the poor folks in her neighborhoos, nya. She is sexy and frisky in her tight dark leather costume with the cat ears & catseye goggles, nya! 

Speaking of the cat ears, Rebecca is not only an illustrator, photographer, mewsician and baker, but she likes to cosplay too, nya! Purrhaps y'all have seen the purrior photos of her vampire, faerie, Jedi and wolf goddess cosplays, nya? Thusly, we purrsent the purretty selfie photo of Rebecca wonderfully wearing the costume cat ears that she purrchased from a vender at the anime convention Animazement. nya!

Then we have the fan art of "Kirino Kousaka" by our friend Misty Hopkins, nya!

After that is our friend Justin LaPoint's colored pencil illustration of his purretty Gray kitty "Gray Malkin", who has found the comfy spot upon the coil rug, nya! Justin is a writer, artist & religion instructor who co-created with his son John the web comic Animal Town Confidential, nya! It is the very amewsing web comic about the anthropurrmorphic characters such as Inspector Dog who investigates the mysteries, nya! We are always glad to see Justin and John at the annual WhatTheHell?!

we are are pleased to purremier Mike's series purrtaining to our mayor "Peppurr-Minta", whose birthday is July 4th, nya! Firstly is the look back at her 10th birthday as the cute widdle kitten girl in the bikini & bracelets to match the boogie board given to her by her purrents and aunty Kara-Meow'l nya! That was in 1977, not long after the purremier of Star Wars, nya! She is about to surf at our North Shore under the Blue sky and Cumulo-Neko clouds, nya!

Then in "Peppurr-Minta 2" she has the Pink bikini, bracelets & board for her 20th birthday in 1987, nya! After posing for this pic, she rode the waves near our Northern Shore with her mom Mara-Shi'noh and aunty Kara-Meow'l, while her dad and uncle purrpared the snappurrs, nya! Peppurr-Minta and Mara-Shi'noh surf for fun, whereas Kara-Meow'l is the purrofessional, surfer, nya! Her dad and uncle like the ocean, but purrfer to be in the boat, nya!

"Peppurr-Minta Five-Oh" commeowmerates her 50th birthday which was just last month, with the Gold board, bikini and jewelry that were purresents from her children, nya! At some time between this and the purrior pic she got the tattoos, nya! In this 3rd pic it she is re-creating the purrior pose, but it is duskly darker as everyone began to stow the gear just before the luau, nya!  We had the wonderful time with the festive friends, food and fireworks, nya! 

Lastly but not leastly in this series is the look ahead into the future for "Peppurr-Minta 2042", nya! Her children and grand -  children have given her the purretty Green board, bikini, jewelry and the traditional luau for her 75th birthday, nya!
