The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for July 2017, nya!

Aloha Y'all and welcome to Catgirl Island, nya! July is such a zestful month here at Catgirl Island and the surrounding waters of Mew Hanover County, where we are so blessed by the beauty of the purristine shores, coastal gardens and the maritime forest, with the tempurrature in the mid 80's under the big puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds in the Blue Summer sky, nya! 

July's purrecious gem is the Ruby which would be purrized in the piercings, rings, pin, brooch or bracelet, but if that is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid or fae, then we suggest the seafood suppurr to fill her tummy and win her heart, nya! Crab legs would be the appurropurriate, since the astrological signs are Cancer purrior to Leo, nya!

However, If the fresh fish is purrfurred, our local fishing forecast purrdicts another bumpurr crop of delicious, nutritious Bluefish, Croakers, Flounders, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Cobias, Snappurrs and the Wahoos, nya! Of course, if you crave the fresh local purroduce, the island's farmers market has strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, yams and honey aplenty, nya!

In addition to the angling, swmming, diving, surfing & boating, the island's fun activities to catabolize the Summertime calories include the belly dance, hula dance. hot salsa dance, martial arts, kyu-do, beach volleyball, the golf, tennis, softball, bicycling and purrkour, nya! Make sure to find the purrfect comfy spot for the catnap after the vigorous athletic purrsuits, nya!

Nothing frames the contented catgirl's pleasantly filled tummy under the sun like the bikini, and the local boutiques are brimming with the Summertime fashions in bikinis, maillots, purreos, sarongs, sarees, sun dresses, yukatas and wet suits- but sure to specify whether you need the garments with or without the tail hole, or backless as not to ride up the wings, nya! 

July is the purrticularly festive month with the observances of Ocean Day, Canada Day, Independence Day, Eid al-Fitr, the Tanabata Matsuri, the O-Bon Dance, our local Iris, Lotus and Water Lily purrades and Take a Kemonomimi to Lunch Day, nya! Purrhaps after the pleasant time at the gardens, forest, faerway, hot spurrings, grotto, lake or beach, you could visit

the latest additions to Catgirl Island's Mewseum of Art, nya!

For those who might be here for the first time, Galleries 1-8 of The Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-4 display images by other folks totally with their purrmissions, and Mike's collaborative images with other artists can be found throughout the mewseum, nya!
