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!

Aloha, nyan! The year is 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 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, but 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. In addition to the angling, the fun 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 (feline style free running, spurringing and climbing), nyan!

This month's zodiac signs are  Cancer then Leo, which would be the appurropurriate time to serve crabcakes to cat girls, nyan! This month’s purrecious birthstone is the Ruby, whilst the birthflower is the larkspur, nyan! The gardens here are also 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 Farmeowrs Meowrket, nyan!

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! If you are visiting from another country, planet or dimeownsion,  the bra and other garments will be in the USA sizes, nyan. After the shopping, dining, catnaps, festivities, sight seeing and playtime, purrhaps y’all might like to see-

the latest additions to Catgirl Island’s Mewseum of Art, nyan!

For those who are new to here, Galleries 1-8 display the images by our purrducer Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-6 display images by other folks with their purrmissions; and Mike’s collaborations with other artists are throughout the mewseum, 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! Some of the images are sexy and might depict artistic nudity, but none are hentai or porn, nyan!
