This year is the Year of the Tiger, Catgirl Island’s 23rd Anniversary, and 
the 15th Anniversary of The Catgirl Critics’ Media Mewsings: The Mew, nya!

































































































The tourism is purrone to escalate here 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, 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! 

March is the purrticularly festive month with Pi Day, The Tides of March, Peachy Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, the Vernal Equinox, Women’s Day, Transgender Day of Visibility, World Religions Day, Holi, Purrim, Hola Mopholla, Ostara, Naw Ruz, Navaratri, Ramadan, the start of Daylight Savings Time, the NCAA March Madness, and the zodiac signs of Pisces followed by Aries, nyan!

Speaking of the fish signs, 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 local boutiques have the purretty appurral, such as the bikinis, maillots, purreos, sarongs, hijabs, sarees, ao dais, sun dresses, kimonos, yukatas, gi, fundoshi, hakama, happi, shorts, tee shirts, halter tops, lingerie, robes, athletic bras, sandals, flip flops, towels, wet suits and leis, 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! If you are visiting from another country, the bra and other garments will be in USA sizes, 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! 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, nya!

Here y’all will find the hundreds of annotated illustrations and photographs, nya! Galleries 1-8 display images by our purrducer Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-6 display images by other folks with their purmissions; and Mike’s collaborations with other artists are peppurrred throughout the mewseum, nya! 

Some of the images are sexy, and might even depict the artistic nudity, but none are “hentai”, nya! On our web site, the most recent pics are on the lowermost row of the cropped widdle “thumbnail” sized portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full images, nyan.

The content on this site is not purrmitted for A.I. Art purrposes, nya!

This month into Guest Gallery Six we are purroud to purrsent more images by Lumshock, Melody Rondeau, and  Rvkh Brogden; whilst in Gallery Two we have added the latest illustration by Mike!

The first of seven new pics by Melody is “Barking up the Wrong Tree”, nyan! in this Doctor Who fan art, eleven incarnyations of that titular Time Lord have been transformed into anthropormorphic cat people who have been treed by the Doctor’s robot dog K9, nyan!! This is even more of an ailuranthropic (and whimsical) perdicament than when the 7th Doctor mutated in to the Cheetah Person in the 1989 “Survival” episode, nyan! 

Doctor Hue” is more of Melody’s Doctor Who fan art, in whch the 6th incarnyation of The Doctor is not just painting the impurressionstic image of the cat, but seems to be actually painting on the cat, nyan! Although that Doctor would appurr to be the cat lover, or at least the cat pin collector (as evidenced by the pin upon the lapel), the Gray Tabby does not seem to share in the enthusiasm for the art! 

You know, The Doctor has been the friend to several famous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci (in the 1978 epurrsode “City of Death”), and Vincent van Gogh (in the 2010 epurrsode “Vincent and the Doctor”)! The Doctor was the mewseum curator in the 2013 episode “The Day of the Doctor”, and In the 2018 epurrsode “Rosa”, the Doctor teased that she might be the secret identity of the artist known as Banksy, nyan!

Hansel” is Melody’s fan art of the 1812 fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel by The Brothers Grimm, nyan! In that tale, the brother and sister were trapped in an evil witch’s edible house, but in this pic  the siblings are eating her out of house and home, nyan!  The chocolate single-panel shutters, the sugar wafer chimne and the ice cream cone exterior sconce are the rather appurrtizing architectural elements, nyan!

Fourthly of Melody’s beautiful whimsical art is “Love”, in which the purretty Green Water Horse is love stricken over the catgirl’s cute inflatable floaty ring; nyan! It is also quite sexy with the alluring Golden Tabby nekomimi in the Purrple front-tie halter-neck bikini; and yet it has the bittersweet quality too, as we suspect that both the catgirl and the Water Horse will be unhappy if / when that float gets deflated, nyan!

In “Hold Still”, the meowster carver chisles the wood to shape the 1:1 scale Paciific Northwestern Totem Pole, nyan! If the beaver is about  3ft long (including tail) then we assume that the pole is appuroximately 6.5ft tall, nyan. Purrhaps the beaver’s teeth will intricately whittle away the finer details of the piece, nya!  Unfortunately, this crafty castoridae is the frustrated artist, as the posing subjects cannot keep still, and it is the artist’s models who are the ones who are suffering for the art, nyan! 

The 6th of Melody’s pics is “Happy”, which commeowmerates the Year of the Rabbit, nyan! In the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of the Tiger ended on 21 January, 2023, and thusly the next day began the Year of the Rabbit, and so to commeownce  the annual remewal cycle, the venerable Father Time Tiger with a lovely lantern crook is auspiciously succeeded by an eager Bunny Baby Mew Year, with the “Gong-hei fat choy” wish for a purrospurrous future, nyan!

Dinothor” is Melody’s anthropurrmorhic purrody of Marvel Comics’ Thor, the heroic Norse God of Thunder, nyan! According to  the Marvelous mythology, inscribed in large, friendly Nordic runes upon the cheek of the meowgickal hammer Mjolnir is the legend succinctly that succintly states that ”Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor”, and thusly this mpurressively clever fan art appurrs to answer the question of what if a Triceratops worthily grasped the divine weapon, nyan!

Melody is the great artist, fanzine author, publisher, and cat owner with the animeowtion training, nyan! She and her husband Jim sell comic books, magazines, fanzines, books, games, plushie dolls, movie and TV film clips, scripts, posters and meowmorabilia at conventions, shows, and by mail-order through their web site Make It Go Away, and for more information about Melody, we recommeownd the page about her at Fanlore, nyan!

Nextly we are delighted to display impeccable illustrations by Rvkh Brogden (pronounced Riv-kah), nyan! The first of those two pics is “Angelic Fire” which depicts the Nayera the Deva who is literally playing with fire, nyan! Born on the mainland in Durham, NC on February 4th, 2005 (Aquarius in the Year of the Rooster) Nayera is the half caucasian / half pacific islander deva who graduated from the Durham School of the Arts and purresently resides here at our island!

Sanoe does not purractice her magickal skills as much as her sister, but she is more interested in the fashion and flnancial oppurrrtunities, nyan. The traditional version of this illustration (right) was done with pencils, pens and paints, whilst the digital version (left) was done with Purrocreate upon the Ipad with the Apple Pencil, and the digital version’s art purrocess video is at

Nextly we are purrticularly pleased to unveil the Rvkh’s illustration of Police Chief Meryl in her Winter mewniform, nya! Born in London on December 17th, 1976 (Saggittarius in the year of the Dragon), Catgirl Island, NC’s Police Chief Meryl Murrey is 5’7” tall and 120 lbs, with the Black hair, Medium Tan skin, Golden eyes, inny belly button, BWH sizes of 36D-24-36” the 36” tail, 160 IQ, O+ blood type, and her favorite hobby is riding motorcycles, nyan!

The first of the two pics by Lumshock is the lovely ”Lioness”, nyan! After declining to heed the other purride meowmbers’ warnings to not overzealously purrey upon that enormous elephant by herself, the lovely lithe, lean, little leonine lass appurrs to be sore, scratched and scruffy after an unsucccessful hunt, nyan! Purrhaps the frazzled, famished, feisty, feline femme fatale will stick to stalking much easier game upon the very vast ’n verdant veldt, nyan! 

I Heard You Like Rabbits” depicts the peppy, purrky, purrt ’n purretty Pink-clad cosplayer is appurropurriately dressed to frolick friskilly outdoors on such a pleasant day, purrticularly since Easter is nigh in this Year of the Rabbit, and her two rabbit feet should bring her twice the good luck during the egg hunt, nyan! The costume combines the leopurrid style with sexy stretchy skin-tight spandex with alluring oval cut-out attention to her tantalizing tummy that craves delicious, nutritious carrots and leafy salad, nyan!
