Aloha, nya! Fortunately here at Catgirl island and the surrounding OBX waters of Mew Hanover County NC, we are so blessed by the beauty of the purristine Mid-Atlantic shores, coastal gardens and the meowritime forest, with purrpetual bikini weather, and the tempurrature in the low 80’s under the lush arbors and puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds in the Blue Summer sky, nya! 

We are also fortuitius 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 the fish, 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! !f you crave fresh organic local purroduce, the island's farmers market is brimming the pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, yams, scuppurrnongs,honey and nummy cakes aplenty, nya!

The delicious aromas might also attract the appurritions and other purranormal phenomenon, you know, 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!
