The time has flown quickly by like the hypurr drive, nya! The tourism is purrone to escalate here during the Wintery months, purrticularly as visitors from the nippier 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, nya! If you purrfur the hotter tempurratures, we recommend the soothing soak in our hot spurrings, which have the purrticularly rejuvenative purropurrties, nya!

Fortunately here at Catgirl island and the surrounding OBX waters of Mew Hanover County NC, 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 hazardous invasive species, nya! The local fishing forecast purrdicts the bumpurr crop of the delicious, nutritious Snappurrs, Groupurrs, Stripurrs, Croakers, Wahoos, Bluefish Mackerels, oysters, scallops and shrimp, nya!

In addition to angling, to catabolize the calories we balance purrolonged catnaps with athletic purrsuits such as purrkour, 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 the Aki (Fall) semester has ended at our county’s public schools (K-12), Mew Hanover Commeownity College, and the Catgirl Island Purrforming Arts Center, nya!
