Now They Have Gone Too Far

Dear Reader, I am so much in a dither this morning that I can barely type. I’m frantic. And I’m… scared. I received a message this morning and I don’t know how to respond to it… I mean, I know what I’m supposed to NOT do.. but. Well, I need your help deciding.


Even though I am not a “cat person”, I have come to love my cat; and he’s never hurt anybody, or said mean things about them. If something happened, it would break my heart.


Oh. Wait. It says I sent the note.

I don’t remember doing that.

I think I need to stop typing and go get my head examined. I seem to have a Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde thing going on…

* Folks: it seems my facetious tack and humor is not exactly clear. This image is a screenshot of my Spam folder. Spammers “spoof” the e-mail addresses: here  several appear to come from “me”. The cyber-criminals are just trying new ways to get people to click, and I though threatening a cat was kind of.. unique.
I thought my readers should be aware — they want us to click, so don’t!
