The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for September 2015, nya!

Aloha y'all, nya! Summertime (Natsu) is waning into the cooler Autumn (Aki) upon the Autumnal Equinox, but it is still quite the purrennial sunny, clear bikini weather under the rich Blue skies and lush Green arbors here at Catgirl Island with the tempurratures in the uppurr 80's (furrenheit), well, except in the cooler purristine lake, river and mid-Atlantic waters under the puffy cumulo-neko clouds... or purrhaps in the steamier, soothing hot spurrings under the Cherry, Dogwood & Maple trees, nya!

You know, September is the rather colorfully festive month, with the many local cultural events throughout the island and the waters of Mew Hanover County, nya! Some of the month's festivities include our Forget Me Not Festival, Morning Glory Purrade, Chrysanthemum Day, our Lunar Festival, the Mermaid Matsuri sponsored by the Far-Mers' Market and at the Dive-In Theatre, Take a Kemonomimi to Lunch Week, our local Banker Pony Centaur Holiday and Faerie Appurreciation Month, nya!

Other observances of the state, national or global interest include the Autumnal Equinox, Labor Day, Patriot Day, Grandpurrents Day, Respect for the Aged Day, International Peace Day, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, and the astrological change from Virgo to Libra, nya! Halloween purrepurrations have begun too, from the Trick 'R Eat & Cosplay Purrowl in beautiful downtown Purrbank and the foxfire at the forest grove ampurrtheatre, to the merfolks' haunted grotto and spooky kelp maze, nya!

The purrecious stone is the sapphire which would be purrized in the rings or piercings or in the bracelet for the wrist, ankle or the tail, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, centauress or fae, then we suggest the delicious, nutritious seafood suppurr to fill her tummy and win her heart, nya! A bikini or cut-out purretzel maillot are the purrfurred swim wear to nicely frame the kemonomimi tummy, especially when it is well-fed purrior to the catnap on the beach, nya!

Speaking of the seafood, our local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of Groupurrs, Snappurrs, Bluefish, Mackerels, Marlins, Mullets, Tunas, Wahoos, Speckled Trout and Striped Bass, nya! In addition to the angling, other fun activities to catabolize the calories  after the meal and nap include the swimming, diving, surfing, sailing, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, hiking, purrkour, yoga, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kyudo, jujutsu and beach volleyball, nya! We also suggest a visit to

The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!

For those who are here for the first time, art galleries 1-7 display illustrations & photos by Mike, whilst guest art galleries 1-3 display images by other folks with their purrrrmissions, and Mike's collaborations with other artists are displayed throughout the various galleries, nya! On the web site, in any of those galleries, the most recent images are repurrsented by the lowermost row of small, cropped "thumbnail" - size portions of the images, and you have to click on one in order to see the uncropped, full - size version of the pic, nya!

Nyow in the mewseum's Guest Gallery 3 we are purroud to purrsent a pic of "Daisy & Violet" by Rebecca Brogden, nya! Purrhaps y'all have seen her purrior illustrations & photos in our mewseum, or read her amewsing romantic purrose tale of "The Love of a Catgirl", nya? Daisy (on the left with Flaxxen Blonde hair) and Violet (on the right with Magenta hair) are adorable widdle bunny girl twins who were born on 24 July 1999, nya!

Both girls are juniors in the high school with part - time pet and baby sitter jobs, nya! They are loyal, patient, courteous, charming, athletic, industrious and like to help at the mewseum and at the volleyball matches, but they also like to sleep a lot, nya! They are twins but have the differences; Daisy is the more cautious one whilst Violet is slightly more adventurous, which purrhaps explains why she was born a few moments first, nya! Their favorite foods are clovers, collards, cobblers, and the carrot cakes their Aunt Bunnibuns bakes, nya!

Nextly In Guest Gallery 3 is Rebecca's illustration of "Dr. Jewel Fire-Shower" who is a teacher & vice purrincipal at our island's school grades K-12, nya! She is a faerie with the speckled Plum and Gold colored wings that remind me of autumn leaves, nya! She was born on 31 July 1947 and recently celebrated her 68th birthday, although she looks to be in her 30's, nya! She has the 2 sisters, 1 husband and 3 daughters; she is a volunteer fire fighter and an inspurrational, wise, charitable, charismatic teacher who makes the learning fun, nya!

In this illustration, she is so lovely in the sleeveless short Red dress with the clingy tight bodice and matching thigh - high hose, the tight Green vest and the matching frilly garters, the Purrple gloves and the slouched, pointy hat that goes so well with her wings, nya! The outfit splendidly accents her Green eyes and her short, purrt honey blonde coiffure as she magickally conjures the widdle spirit flame amongst the mystical clouds in the starry sky, nya! Rebecca rendered both illustrations using Sai, Photoshop CS6 and an Intuos5 tablet, nya!

Just added to Gallery 7 is Mike's pic of "Ms. Tharesha Alopia", who is the wise, vivacious supurrintendent of the Mew Hanover County schools, nya! She is a Thresher shark - finned mermaid whose birthday was 16 August 1962, which makes her of the Leo Tiger sign, nya!  She has Blue eyes, long straight Blue hair and Light Blue skin with an Indigo dorsal fin tip; she is 9 feet long from head to tail, she weighs 175 lbs, and the other measurements of her muscular physique are 38D-30-38, nya!

Her hobbies include the work outs, swimming marathons, reading manga, watching movies, and her pet Dogfish, nya! Her favorite foods are tuna, mackerel, cuttlefish, shrimp and Chocolate cake, nya! She is a very popular administrator and a dear friend of purrincipal Apurracida and vice-purrincipal Fire-Shower, nya! In this underwater scene, Tharesha is wearing the purretty gold jewelry and the JellyCups bra! The art media iused for the illustration are the pencil, Sakura Micron pens, Copic markers, Photoshop CS2 and the mouse, nya!

Nextly in Gallery 7 is Mike's widdle pic of the "Nekomimi no Yarn Ball", nya! Wearing the cute bell collar, Hot Pink cropped tank top and shorts, the playfully petite Dark tan catgirl is so happy with the supurr sized ball of Purrple yarn which seems to be about 3 feet in diameter, nya! It is so very tempting, nya! The image is a re-creation of a pic that Mike drew at the fun Oak City Comic Show 2, on the mainland in Raleigh last month, nya! The media are the pencil, Micron pens, Photoshop CS2 and mouse, nya! Meanwhile, it is also the time for
