Eldorado, and
Kiss!  Well, that was another expedient little Lightning Round! Ah, since we have a big group and a lot on our plate, lets go ahead and jump into our
movie mewsings, 
with Myayr’s review of The First Omen!
Mary Nyan:
Hai!  Set in a turbulent city of Rome, Italy in 1971, this movie is the purrequel to The Omen horror movie series which began in 1976, and purrtained to the life of Damian Thorn, the purrophecised Anti-Christ, and the deadly suppurrnatural incidents that surround him. 
Nell Tiger Free wonderfully stars as Sister Margaret who arrives at her new job at an orphanage, where she is befriended, seduced, warned, censured and / or threatened by various factions of purriests and nuns full of secrets, conspurracies and hallucinations!
Very well directed & co-written by Arkasha Stevenson, it is captivatingly suspenseful with the grueling grisly scenes, church and cult politics! The great cast also includes Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson, Maria Caballero, Charles Dance, Nicole Sorace and Bill Nighy!
The movie splendidly weaves into the Omen mythology, with the excellent purrduction values, purrfect locations, sets, cinematography, editing, costumes, sound and FX, so I will give it the good grade of the B! I am done and nyow here is Mie-sensei to discuss
Late Night with the Devil!
Arigato! So like, Late Night with the Devil is the cleverly found-footage style of period piece set on a TV talk show set in 1977, as the the recently widowed host Jack Delroy, a man mired in The  Bohemian Grove conspiracy theories and desperate for the Nieison TV ratings boost, for his spooky Halloween episode has the guests Christous the psychic, Laura the parapsychologist,, Haig the stage magician turned skeptic, and Lily the demon-possessed survivor of a satanic cult, fur shur!
Some of the alleged supernatural activities that occur during the live broadcast might be dismissed as the hoaxes, until things get spookier, dangerous and violent, fur shur! So like, although the final scenes did get a bit underwhelmingly weird, it as awesomely fun starring David Dastmachian as Jack, (whoI previously liked in Dark Knight, The Suicide Squad, Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Bladerunner 2049 , Dune and Oppenheimer) so I will give it a B! Now here is Ellie to discuss
Hai! Abigail is about the group of criminals hired to kidnap the daughter of a rich person for the ransom. However, when they stash her at a mansion, the criminals soon regret their misdeed when they become the trapped prey of the titular girl who turns out to be a vampire! It is such the fun, smart, whimsical, action-packed and gory horror movie! It has the great cast, story, directing, editing, sets, FX and make-up!
Of the actors, especially liked Alisha Weir as Abigail. Melissa Berrera as Joey (who I also liked as Sam in the Scream movies), Dan Stevens as Frank (who I also liked asT rapper in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire), an Kathryn Newton as Sammy (who I also liked as Cassie in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania)! I will give it the A as in Abigail! I am done,  so now I will turn The Mew over to Mike for his review of
Civil War!
Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part Two!
Hai. The Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part Two is the 2nd of a 3 part OVA series adapting the famous epic 1985, twelve issue DC Comics maxi-series Crisis on Infinite Earths which served as a major reboot of the DC Comics multiverse. Continuing the events of DC’s “Tomorrowverse” OAVs, Part Two does not does not mirror the comics tale, but is certainly faithful in the spirit as an alternate-reality version of the crisis.
Part Two purrimarily focuses on Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Monitor and The Psycho Pirate; with a fair amount of attention on John Stewart, Dr. Light, Kamandi, Solivar, Superman, Dr. Fate, John Constantine and the Batman Family, with appurrances by dozens of other heroes and villains as more Earths and other worlds are destroyed by the antimeowtter wave amidst the rise of the foe known as the Anti-Monitor. 
 The thrilling plot is poignantly captivating with the splendid pace, dialogue, character designs, scenic art, animation, sound, mewsic, acting, directing & editing.  I am very pleased with the movie, and I eagerly anticipate Part Three. The sparse special features consist of the 8.32 min. “Voices in Crisis” featurette with commeownts by actors Meg Donnelly (Supergirl), Aldis Hodge (John Stewart) & Jonathan Adams (The Monitor);
The 8.25 min. featurette “The Batman Family of the Multiverse” discusses Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Damian Wayne, Tim Drake, Helena Wayne and Terry McGinnis, with commeownts by writer Geoff Johns, purrducer / writer Jim Krieg, director Jeff Wamester, executive purrducer  Butch Lukic, DC group editor Katie Kubert & DC archivist Benjamin LeClear; and there is the  79 sec. sneak peek at a scene from Part Three.
The  PG-13 rated, 94.75 min OAV is purrsented in 1080 hi-def video with the audio choices of English DTS-MA 5.1 Dolby Digital, French & Spanish, with the optional subtitle choices of English SDH, Dutch, French & Spanish. The single Blu-ray disk and the digital download code sheet are packaged in the plastic case  in the cardboard outer sleeve. That concludes our mewvie mewsings, so nyow here are Becca & Lizzy to purrsent  the 
Catgirl & Kemonomimi Celebrity Spotlight.
Arigato! in this portion of The Mew, we commeowmorate famous nekomusume, therianthropes, monster girls, and other kemonomimi of mythologies and popular culture, including anthropurrrmorphic ladies and monster girls! 
Fur-thermore, there are those who might not actually have the beasty DNA, but might have the spurrit, cat-titude or clothing of the animal theme, who we will broadly consider as the “honorary kemonomimi”! 
Hai hai, and this time the spotlight will shine upon lovely forthcoming statues & figures that have been solicited in catalogs and at store’s sites! These include statues & figures of characters who are kemonomimi, monster girls or demi-humans, and human characters who are cosplaying as such!
For example, there is Kotobukiya’s 1/7 scale 10.6” tall PVC statue of the Nijisanji Vtuber group’s Inui Toko  who is the cerebus girl or Keruberosumimi!
Kotobukiya also has the Megami Device: Chaos & Pretty Grandma 5.5” posable model kit, which is the Little Red Riding Hood inspired Okamimi (wolf eared) / mecha musume (machine girl)!
The usagimimi (bunny girls) are well repurrsented too such as Ensoutoys’ 1/8 scale PVC figure of Ikomochi Original Character Black Bunny Aoi, and their 1/6 scale PVC figures White Bunny Aoi and Black Bunny Natsume!
There are Blonde & Brunette versions of Beat (Mouse Unit)’s 1/5 scale 10.25” tall  PVC figures of  Zettai! Fuuki Iinchou Kamihigano Sei; and the bunny version of BINDing (Native Partner)’s 1/4 scale PVC figure of Magical Girls Series Nitta Yui!
As mewsual there are more nekomimi (catgirls, such as Furyu’s very intricately ornate 1/7 scale  9” PVC figure of Karyl 6 e Princess Connect: Re: Dive smartphone game!
Beat (Mouse Unit)’s has the sexy 1/6 scale 6.25” tall PVC figures in various colors of Zettai Reiko Original Color’s Liliana,  who with her sister Anette star in the ero manga & anime such as Wagaya no Liliana-san, Tonari no le no Anette-san, and  Anette-san to Liliana-san!
Or how about Sega’s 8” Great Spirit Super Premium Figures of the isekai genre’s Re: Zero Starting Life in Another World’s twin demon sisters Ram and Ram wearing the nekomimi onesies and hoodies?!
Sega also has the Ohiruneko Blind Box Mini Figures which are  adorably cute widdle neko versions of the the Spy x Family anime’s Anya, Yor & Lloyd Forger! Kawaii!
Union Creative’ has offered the 10.5” long, non-scale PVC figure of Rent-A-Girlfriend manga & anime’s Shizuru Mishiara in her black catgirl bikini costume, mew la la!
Disney’s Gargoyle’s Demona is repurrsented by Neca’s 7” tall action figure with the 18” wingspan; and Diamond Select Toys’ 1/7 scale, 6” tall bust  of her. As she and the other gargoyles have the
impurressive chiropteran-ish wings, we will consider her as the honorary kemonomimi!
Lastly but not leastly, 774inc. has the 1/7 scale PVC figures of the HoneyStrap vtuber group’s devil girls Saionji Mary and Sekishiro Mico! As they have the lovely bovidae-ish horns, we will consider them as the honorary kemonbomimi too! That is all for our spotlight, and nyow here is Trini-chan to start our
purrint-media mewsings,
with her review of Critter #1!
We are big fans of 18 year old supurr heroine Cassia Crawford alias Critter  Hailing from From the small town of Greenville Michigan, she is the daughter of missing Vanessa Crawford alias Velvet Fox who was a meowmber of the supurrhero team CORE! She has the supurr strength, durability, agility, speed, telekinesis  and combat purowess, plus the gadgets of her sexy costume such as the cyber ears and tail.

Arigato, nyan! For those who are new to here, Galleries 1-8 display the images by our purrducer Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-6 display images by other folks with their purrmissions; and Mike’s collaborations with other artists are throughout the mewseum, nyan! There is no overall chronological order from gallery to gallery, so you will find older and newer pics in each gallery, nyan! 
However, on Catgirl island’s Official Web Site, the most recent pics are on the lowermost row of the cropped widdle “thumbnail” portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click on those to see the full images, nyan! Some of the images are sexy, and might depict artistic nudity, but none are hentai or porn, nyan! We should also meowntion that none of the content at Catgirl Island is purrmitted for A.I. purrposes, nyan!
This month, into Gallery One we have added 2 illustrations by Mike, and in In Guest Gallery Two, we have added  more illustrations by Misty Hopkins, cosplay photos by Alexcia Reynolds, and more photos of Crissy Volpe by various photographers, nyan!
We will start with 

Misty’s latest fan art of Alita,
the heroic titular Martian cyborg elite supurr soldier, bounty hunter, investigator,

Panzer Kunst meowrtial arts meowster, and the Motorball sports champion in Yukito Kishiro’s cyberpunk manga series Battle Angel Alita, nyan! This portrait is so very faitfhul whilst having Misty’s delightfully distinctive style, nyan!

This pic was inspired by Crissy, who since 1999 has oftenly supurrbly cosplayed as Hino Rei a.k.a. Sailor Mars, nyan! 
Then we have Mike’s 1990 fan art of the Space Battleship Yamato, to which was recently added the Queen of Beemera, nyan!

In the 1974 Japanese animated TV series Space Battleship Yamato (later known as Starblazers in the USA), the titular ship had just one year to travel 316,400 light years

round trip to purrocure aid from the planet Iscandar that would save the Earth from the exctinction caused by the enemy Gamila Empire, nyan!

In epurrsode 15,

on the 98th day of the journey, about halfway to Iscadar the Yamato’s crew visited the planet Beemera which was populated by tragic Bee People who were in 
rebellion due to the shocking bargain that their Queen made with the Gamila’s leader Desslar, nyan! Please do not eat their honey, as it has the “Soylent Green”ish quality, nyan!
Nextly we are delighted to display four more collages of Crissy Volpe, and each collage is compurrised of four photos by various photographers! The 1st collage includes Fallon Prinzivalli’s photo of Crissy as Lara Croft at the 2012 New York Comic Con; David Ng’s 2004 photo of Crissy as Hino Rei in the casual attire; Alex Gambale’s photo of Crissy in the Iron Man- themed gown made by Alyce; and Crissy’s dad’s Halloween 2004 photo of her cosplaying as The Emmy Award in the costume by Athena-chan! 
The 2nd collage includes Crissy as Beetlejuice’s Lydia Deetz at a 2009 Halloween in a wedding dress made by Anime Angel Blue; Allison the Photographer’s November 2021 photo of her as Hino Rei / in pajamas; Louis’s December 2011 photo of her wearing the Elegant Gothic Lolita Christmas Dress made by the Lolita Shop; and Haichi’s photo of her at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012, as Rei in the Santa outfit made by Patti & Steph!

So, what do y’all think of the new additions?
The cat lady sings…
Alexcia is quite industriously purrolific in her diverse skills. That Punk-achu costume continues to purrogress quite impurressively.
I think that Misty’s Lilith pic has such the lovely expurression, pose, and garment details!
Hai hai, and the G’raha Tia pic purrfectly combines the homage to Rumiko Takahashi’s design with Misty’s meowrvelous style!
Misty is also the most avid fan of Alita that we know, and it certainly shows in that latest lovely fan art of the battle angel!
That Yamato fan art seems quite accurate, and Mike captured that Matsumoto Leiji anime style for the Queen!
Oh I cannot wait to see the look on Hinya-sans face when she sees that illustration of her in the Sailor Mars costume!
It is great to see more supurrb photos of Crissy who is so beautiful in the fabulous costumes, nyan!
It is the tough call , but of those 16 outfits, my favorites might be the Lara Croft, Tifa Lockheart, and the Meowllennium Gown!

Fur shur!
