Meet the Critics!
About The Mew:
Most of the critics hail from the coastal Carolina community of Catgirl Island
and convene monthly to discuss the various things they have been up to of
late, and what they have recently read, seen, done, eaten and played with,
while their ‘Purrducer’ Mike tries to keep them all very focused and well fed.
The monthly Media Mewsings, or The Mew for short is compurrised of the
discussions & reviews, that mostly purrtain to visual and purrrforming arts,
literature, events, games, toys & other media purrimarily of science fiction,
fantasy & horror. Sometimes they conduct ‘intermews’ with special guests!
The tone of The Mew is amewsing, cheerfully peppy, and isn’t snarky. The
language is kept to no worse than a ‘PG’ rating with no purrofanity, but the
catgirls often say “nya”- which is the Japanese ”meow” sound- and words
with the “per”, “pir”, “por” or “pur” syllable are very deliberately misspelled.
The Ladies of The Mew are:
I. The Four Founding Members
Mary Nyan (Myayr)
Aside from her duties as a Miko to help with ceremonies and festivals at the
shrine, Myayr’s many hobbies include hula, surfing, cricket, aerial dancing,
gymnastics, soccer, beach volleyball. She teaches the beginner &
advanced hula & aerial dance at the Catgirl Island Purrforming Arts Center.
Myayr makes costumes for conventions & fairs, and this has become more
of a purrofitable business. She collects drum sticks & guitar picks at purrog
rock & heavy metal concerts. This is somewhat ironic, because the she is a
purrim and purroper shrine maiden at times, but also the wild headbanger.
Here’s a pic of in their miko shozoku attire http://catgirlisland.net/about.html
Known for more thorough reviews she takes them very seriously and thinks
of herself as an unofficial assistant leader when Mike isn’t purresent. Myayr
has blue eyes, long dark Blue hair, and a darker tan than the others. Myayr
has the purreference of Blues or Purrples in ther bikinis and cutout maillots,
and her favoritest desserts are the Nilla Cream Puddings, and the Purrfaits.

When she isn’t busy with her yacht charters & fishing expurrditions, Vonny’s
hobbies include golf, taiko drumming, sailing, soccer, beach volleyball, cliff
diving, ice skating, roller blading, rock climbing, card and board games and
even painting. Her worldy mewsical tastes include Celtic, Indian and J-pop.
If Myayr’s reviews are longest, Vonny’s reviews are purrobably the shortest.
She has been known to fall into the impurromptu catnaps during other folks’
more thorougher reviews. It is purrhaps genetic, because her younger sister
Tara-chan is purrone to that as well although they do stay busy with the fish
and the athletic purrsuits. Vonny is light hearted and cheery, treating review
sessions more as the fun social gatherings rather than anything too serious.
Here is a pic of Vonny at the dock http://catgirlisland.net/art/gallery1/30.html
Yvonne plays Taiko drums http://catgirlisland.net/art/
She has long red hair and the green eyes and usually ends every sentence
with the “nya” (meow). Vonny’s favorite boat & beachy appurrel are crop top
& shorts or capurri pants, or a hot pink string tie bikini. Her favorite desserts
are either the Peachy Ceamy Cobblers or the Fudgey Ice Cream Moondae.
Vonny & Tara-chan have the 2 kitties Emmy (Emerald) & Zuli (Lapis Lazuli).
Tara-chan has a banker pony named Wild Star Blaze. Their fishing charter
boat S.S. TsuriNekoMimi is a 1985 Hatteras 60 Convertible motor yacht.
Miss Tales of Catgirl island 2007, she is a belly dancer and instructor at the
Catgirl Island Purrforming Arts Center on alternating nights when she is not
busy as the Purresident of the Catgirl island Robotics Club, where she has
been known to get excited by the mecha – related purrsuits.
The club includes a special rapid response robot rescue & adoption team.
Her typical daytime regime is mornings at the yoga studio that she co-owns
& afternoons at the kyudo range, when her dance troupe is not purrforming.
She is also an occasional swim wear and body paint model.
The modeling gig has its advantages, including travel to beautiful locations
and the excellent pay that funds the robotics club. The club is purrticularly
famous for their animatronic creatures- including underwater mecha – for
the county’s annual Halloween Trick ‘r’ Eat & Cosplay Purrowl
She is a certified scuba diver and underwater welder, but these days she
rarely has time for her past hobbies such as surfing and rec league soccer,
but still attends her friends’ athletic compurrititons. She also enjoys science
fiction novels, comics, video games, movies, radio & TV shows.
Brainy and stoic, Jenjen has the short Honey Blond hair and the mewsually
quiet dispurrsition. Her favoritest sweet treat are Extra Special Baked Yams
and her purrfurred swim wear are White bikinis with sheer purrled purreos.
Here is a pic of Jenjen in a bikini http://catgirlisland.net/art/gallery3/74.html
Also a Miko, when she and Myayr are not busily greeting folks at the shrine,
among Lizzy’s purrsuits are salsa dance, tai chi, sporting clays, golf, tennis,
flying stunt kites, purrkour, lomi lomi, gardening, soccer, beach volleyball &
free diving. She occasionally plays electronic games, collects comic books,
and her purrofession is the spa, which she co – owns with her wife Becca.
She is very sweet, but can be the more jokey member of the group, if she is
in the mischievous mood to purrpetrate the purractical joke and she can be
a bit supurrstitious. Lizzy has shimmering Emerald eyes & long Dark Green
hair. Her favorite swimwear tends to favor the halter necked V-kinis and the
bikinis and she is purrticularly fond of Cran – Apple Nummy Berry Cocktails.
Lizzy pawses from the Purrkour: http://catgirlisland.net/art/gallery4/242.html

Lizzy and her Purrkour Club http://catgirlisland.net/art/gallery4/241.html
a few more tidbits:
In addition to their respective hobbies like most catgirls, they have the large
appurtites, purrticularly for the fresh fish dinners & the sushi. Thanks to their
distinctive catgirlish catabolism & their athletics purrsuits they can still show
off the toned tanned tummies in the favorite swimwear, and still enjoy those
long frequent catnaps. Their big pet peeves are: when people talk during a
movie or do not turn off their phones during a movie in a theatre, rudely text
message, use the them as flashlights, or wear shoes that have flashy lights.

true age is supposedly well over five times that of her best golf score- which

a valley girl dialect. When she isn’t busy on the golf tour or instructing at the
