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

Aloha, nya! October is the purrticularly festive month here at the island and the waters of Mew Hanover County, where we are so blessed by the beauty of the purristine shores, coastal gardens and the maritime forest, with purrennial bikini weather, and the tempurrature in the mid 80's under the lush  arbors and puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds in the Blue Summer sky, nya! 

Thusly it is the purrfect time to celebrate the Halloween fun by purrticipating in our lovely local arts, foods, decorations, and the popular Trick 'R Eat and Cosplay Purrowl, nya!

The zodiac signs continue with Libra from September and end with Scorpio into November, nya! If shopping for jewelry, October's birthstones are Opal and Tourmaline, but if the purrecious gem is too purricey a gift for that special someone, then we suggest the flowers in the lei, corsage, bouquet, vase, pots, hanging baskets or as the garnish for the fresh seafood suppurr, nya!

Speaking of which, the island's fishing forecast purrdicts another numcious bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurs, Speckled Trout, Striped Bass and tasty Tunas to tempt the tummy, nya !f you crave fresh organic local purroduce, the island's farmers market has the pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, yams, honey and nummy cakes aplenty, nya!

The delicious, nutritious foods might attract the appurritions and other purranormal phenomenon, nya! In addition to the angling, the activities to catabolize the calories include the surfing, sailing, swimming, diving, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, skating, hiking, purrkour, yoga, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kite flying, kyudo, jujutsu spurrlunking and beach volleyball, nya!

we are purroud to purrsent the "Holo" fan art by Rebecca Brogden, nya! She is a great illustrator, cosplayer, mewsician and baker, nya! She used the pencil, pen and the colored pencils upon the toned papurr to illustrate Holo, the wise wolf goddess of the wheat harvest from the Spice & Wolf fantasy novels, manga & anime, nya! This supurrb illustration captures Holo's bittersweet beauty and spirit, including her lovely lupine ears and tail, nya!

Then we have the illustration of Rebecca's original character, the "Dragon Mother" in her semi-human form with the Gold horn, wings, tail and egg. nya! She is voluptuously gorgeous with the Red eyes and Raven - Black hair in contrast with her fair skin tone, but she has survived the rough life, and pensively hopes that she and her hatchling will have the happy, healthy home here at our island since she was rescued from a cruel place where dragons are unwelcome, nya.

We can vouch that she will be amidst the friendly populace who welcomes folks of all species, such as her foxy neighbor, Trini-chan's frisky foxy cousin Tahni "The Desert Fox", nya! Tahni has the lovely Red vulpine ears, hair and White - tipped tail, wearing just the feathered headband, loincloth and tribal tattoos, nya!

You know, The Curse of the Cat People was directed by Robert Wise, who decades later directed Mike's favoritest movie Star Trek - The Motion Picture, but I have stray - catted off topic, nya! Of course, Jamie is no stranger to writing & illustrating the tales of ailuranthropic ladies, such as Chelsea the witchy were-panther & her merc were-leopurrd Corrine in his web comic Clan of the Cats, and Chelsea's cute were-leopurrd daughter Charlotte in the Sebo web comic, nya!
