Aloha, nya! The year seems to have 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, the gentle breezes, the purrfect waves, and daytime tempurratures ranging in the uppurr 70’s to the lower 80’s fahrenheit, 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!
