5/18/07: PLEASE Remember, guys, this site is run by fans, us kittens (Jax, Kimmie and the gang!) not by Melissa. Melissa's new site will be her official website, this is merely her official fan site. If you email the site, either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, the kittens check these email addresses, not Mel. The best, and for now only, ways of contacting her are via the snail mail address on the contact page or via her MySpace. Once her site is up, there will be new contact info on there, but until then, please remember, we are not her and we are very, very busy, so we usually cannot forward her your letters, as much as we'd like to. Thank you for understanding!
More Server Downtime!
3/11/07: Thanks again for everyone's patience and understanding as once again today we had some server downtime... this time it wasn't our fault--our host, GoDaddy, had some server problems. Everything is back up and running, but there's always the chance for more problems as things get fixed, so please, be patient and thank you for putting up with it! LOL!

Jax: Lack of Updates & Site Outages
2/18/07: Jax apologizes for two things: 1) The severe lack of updates recently! Thank you all for bearing with my lack of here-ness, lack of updates, etc, as I've been extremely busy between work, school, and a huge move. Thank you all! 2) The outages earlier today... We've had some issues with people hotlinking our media (Please don't hotlink, it uses up the resources we've paid for and if it continues, we may have to remove our multimedia sections, we don't want that!) and in an attempt to fix it, I kinda made the whole site go down for about twelve hours. BUT it is fixed and all is well! Weee! If you have any questions or comments, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
