This year is the Catgirl Island web site’s 24th Anniversary, and the 
17th Anniversary of the monthly Catgirl Critics’ Media Mewsings: The Mew, nyan!

The vernal tourism is purrone to escalate here as visitors from the regions purrtake of our purrpetual bikini weather in the uppurr 70’s, under the lush arbors and the puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds in the Blue sky over our NC OBX island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, nyan!

If you purrfur the much hotter tempurratures, we recommend the soothing soak in our hot spurrings, which have the purrticularly rejuvenative purropurrties, nyan! Fortunately 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 the storms, pathogens, pollutions, bigotries, and invasive organisms, nya!

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.

Such fun and healthy activities include surfing, swimming, sailing, diving, golf, tennis, bad meownton, softball, soccer, field hockey, cycling, skating, hiking, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, yoga, kite flying, jujutsu, kyudo, spurrlunking, yarnball lacrosse,beach volleyball, and purrkour (the local feline style of free running, spurringing and climbing), nyan!

The gardens here are abloom with the chrysanthemeowms, gingers, heliconias, anthuriums, hydrangeas, hibiscus, appurricots, azaleas, roses, bromeliads, morning glories, irises, lotuses, foxgloves, snapdragons, pansies, yellow bells and bird of purradise, plus the succulent scuppurrnongs of the vineyards and the local organic fresh purroduce at the Farmeows Meowrket, nyan!

The backless and halter - neck styles are recommended for the winged folks, and be sure to specify if you purrfur the attire to have the custom tail-ored opening(s), so that it does not ride up on one’s tail, tentacles, wings or fins, nya!

They also have the translucent bikini tops which are sustain-ably mer-made from the bells of naturally-deceased, locally-caught jellyfish in the numerous iridescent colors and cup sizes, mew la la, nyan!
