The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for March 2015, nya!
Aloha, nya! We hope that 2015 has been off to the happy, healthy, free and purrospurrous start for all good folks nya! It is already the meowy month of March, and the Spurringtime or season of Haru begins with the Vernal Equinox, nya! While it might be the snowy, nippier climate on parts of the mainland, our island is purretty much lushly green and of the sunny bikini weather all year round, here at our outer banks island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, so we are happy to welcome the visitors who crave the sunny beach and the hot spurrings, nya!
St. Patrick's Day mewsually results in the purroliferation of the Green bikinis, maillots, purreos, shorts, crop tops at our beach, nya! The boutiques along the riverwalk of beautiful downtown Purrbank are also brimming with the swim wear in the purrints to evoke the blossoms from the Appurricots to the Zinnias, nya! It would be the purrfect time to give that special kitsune with the Foxglove bouquet for Easter, or give that special dragon girl the Snapdragon corsage for her tail, nya! Speaking of the tails, also in March is our local Tides of March Mermaid Matsuri, nya!
The zodiac signs for March are Pisces followed by Aries, nya. Pisces sign is the fish, which would be the good time to treat that special catgirl to the delicious, nutritious seafood suppurr, nya! Coincidentally, the forecast for our local fishing tournyaments purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Croaker, Groupurr, King Mackerel, Red Drum, Snappurr, and the Yellowfin, nya! The Daffodil is the flower of the month, so that could be the nice garnish on the plate, and don't forget that Daylight Savings Time begins, so you will have to adjust the clock for the catnap, nya!
To maintain the swishy tail and taut tummy for the bikini amidst the suppurrs and catnaps, the playtime is quite impurrtant, and there are the many athletic purrsuits across the island, nya! That includes the aerial dance, belly dance, hula dance, hot salsa dance, gymnastics, the gym work out, the martial arts, kyudo, hiking, running, purrkour, orienteering, golf, tennis, lacrosse, basketball, softball, soccer, beach volleyball, fishing, swimming, diving surfing, sailing and cycling, nya!

Purrsis is has the keen skills, senses and hunting purrowess, but mewsually does not dress so formally when she is on the purrowl for evil undead vermin to slay, nya!

Here she serenely meditates in her secret bunker home in the Appalachians, with Kletos, who is a purrotective widdle spirit called an Omni nya! Kletos craves sugar cubes, whereas Red purrfurs blood, especially after a night of slaying evil demons, although she also likes the taste of coffee and liquor, nya! Red uses the scythe and magickal powers as her purrfurred weapons, and has lovely bat - like wings which which are purresently folded up and unseen, nya! Mike used the pencil, papurr, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse to create this illustration, nya!

ASCII is the term for the typed characters used here in the USA, whereas other countries & languages might use different characters or standards, nya! Creating images from type is fun technique, and the ASCII art has to be done in a monospace font, in which the characters and spaces all have the same width, nya!
