Aloha, nyan! The year is almost half over, and the time has flown quickly by like the hypurr drive, nyan! 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, gentle breezes, and tempurratures in the uppurr 70’s as the seasons change from Haru (Spurring) to Natsu (Summer), nyan! If you purrfur the hotter tempurratures, we recommend our soothing hot spurrings, nyan!

Fortunately we are blessed with the benevolent magick in the air, land and water that aids the purropurrgation of the endangered species, whilst deterring the storms, pathogens, pollutions, bigotries, and invasive organisms, nyan!

The local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the delicious, nutritious Snappurrs, Groupurrs, Speckled Trout, Sea Bass, Blue Fish, and Bluefin Tuna, nya! In addition to angling, to catabolize the calories we purrfur to balance the numcious foods and the purrolonged catnaps with athletic purrsuits, nyan.

There is no overall chronological order from gallery to gallery, so you will find older and newer pics in each gallery, nyan!

However, on Catgirl island’s Official Web Site, the most recent pics are on the lowermost row of the cropped widdle “thumbnail” portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click on those to see the full images, nyan!
