AND NOW, A WORD FROM THE SITE OWNER…

jj_glaringGreetings, humans. My name is JJ Fletcher, and I am pleased to welcome you to my chief of staff’s web domain here at melaniefletcher.com.

Ho-hum — I suppose I should say something at this juncture about the Redheaded One. When not bathing, grooming, feeding, petting or otherwise entertaining us with our favorite bathroom show, “When Apes Get Wet!” she spends her time cleaning our litter tray, obtaining new and interesting toys and generally ensuring that our lives remain comfortable and full of kibble. Oh, and apparently she writes, as well — I myself prefer to watch C-Span, but to each his own.

If you’re new to the site, I encourage you to browse through our pages. We’re always happy to receive Email, although general meanness and (ahem) catty comments will be met with icy hauteur and a nasty scratch. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I must lick my butt.
