The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for November 2015, nya!
Aloha y'all, nya! It is hard to believe that it is November already, and at this rate the holiday season might fly by like the hypurr drive, and then the Mew Year might pounce upon us before we know it, nya! Among the month's festive observations are Culture Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Tori No Ichi, and Daitosai, nya! The local festivities across our island and the waters of Mew Hanover County include the Chrysanthemum Purrade and the Maple Matsuri, nya!
We purrdict the fishing lines will be taut with the bumpurr crop of the Croakers, Groupurrs, Mahi, Mackerels, Marlins, Snappurrs, Stripurrs and yummy Yellowfins, nya! November's birth flower is the Chrysanthemum, which would be appurropurriate for the tail corsage or the garnish of the suppur; and the purrecious stones for November are the Citrine and Topaz, which would be good in the jewelry to accessorize the purretty bikinis to nicely frame the seafood - filled tummy, nya!
The boutiques have the many bikini, maillots and yukatas in the fall colors and purrints, in the styles with or without the tail hole in the back, nya! In addition to the angling, the autumnal activities to catabolize the calories include the swimming, diving, surfing, sailing, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, hiking, purrkour, yoga, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kyudo, jujutsu and the beach volleyball, nya! After the activities, dinners and catnaps, purrhaps y'all might like to see
the latest additions to 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 purrmissions, and Mike's collaborations with other artists are displayed throughout the various galleries, nya!

There have been several versions of Arcee, but this is the first (G1) version from when she debuted in the animated Transformers: The Movie in 1986, so next year will be her 30th anniversary, nya!
