Hey everyfur just that I would let you all know I just received the weirdiest email from a woman name grace at yahoo..said for me to respond back and will send pictures and yadda yadda...WELL~this is not how things are done on Catster!!..not even a cat's name was mentioned!!
I will not respond back, either...had a very bad experience with hackers in January and don't want to go thru that again!!
The spelling was not very good, either..I have my RED ALERT up big time.. please be careful out there everyfur!!
P.S.*** just to ADD SOMETHING IMPORTANT HERE this email did not appear in my inbox on Catster, just on my personal email account!! and it said from Catster!!..BALONEY!!!
Puurs and Hugs and Stay and Play Safe
Thanks for letting us know, sure it is a hacker!!!Mom gets those because of her business requesting information and wanting her to take care of their dog or cat....Mom just deletes them...
Don't know why people have to do things like that...we will be on the alert too.....
Thanks for the heads up Friday
We are sorrie you got those nasty e mails too!
You know you can report them to Catster Support even though it's really not Catster.
Somehow she knows of Catster this is really weird & scary!
Everyday we are faced with fear & violence.
I live in Massachusetts where Boston is my home town.
Just look & see what happened yesterday at the
Boston Marathon! It's horrific!
We are also on the Alert!
There are so many very disturbed & sick individuals who will will do what ever it takes & feel absolutely nothing!
They will never see Heavens!
Please forgive me Friday I am feeling so sadd over what our Earth is going through some very scary times!
Thank you for sharing with us about the emails.
We love you & all our dearest Catster/Dogster furriends & pray for them all.

WE LUVS you both!!! And all our furriends on Catster. Kally, we are so very sorry for the injured and the families of those killed. And for all of Boston, a bunch of people who were already pretty much in sync!! It's really tragic.
As for Catster, we get Fashion Spammers and get messages via "Catster" that always have links. Catster does not call them hackers for some reason, but NEVER open a link from someone you DON'T KNOW, even if the links sound legit!!!
Don't know why Catster says they hate spammers, yet treat them like it's just a little nuisance we should accept.
Thank you Tink the Cat!
We appreciate your love, loyalty & wunnaful support as Catster furriends.
♥Love♥ is 4 - eva!
Look what happened to the Answer Board last week all in a different language like Arabic not in English : -/

I can't figure outts how the spammers get into our sites???
Time for nite nite.

Sleep tight purrs sweet dreamzs

Friday, that's awful for someone to target you like that! How can someone be so mean and abuse Catster?! You should report it right away.
Kally, big hugs for you. Our thoughts are with you . What a terrible day it was yesterday. Such cowards to target innocent people. I hope the person or people responsible are caught soon so that the city of Boston and the rest of the world can live in peace.
That definitely sounds like some nasty spam to me!
Thanks for the info Friday and Kalley Kat.
Sure hopes the world gets straighten out soon.
There are alot of people that's needs help!
Life is hard....they needs to deal with it! Correctly!
Have a Great Day!

Hi! Concats on DDP!
We too way up here in Michigan feel so bad for the peeps in Boston...and even today that city is in a turmoil.
Our meowmy prays for their safety and well being.
About those 'spam' messages. We got some links to others who were hit by those but they had of course been taken down...
If you get any in your comments leave them there and copy the whole message to HQ or Watch Cat. It may take some time but they will look into it and deal with them. Only members are allowed to comment on our pages, this was learned by us at Christmas time when there were tons of junk getting on our pages, doggies, too. So I copied them, and sent links of my e-mail notifications over there even for those not on our pages. We had over 100 of them...sheesh!
Anyways, Watch Cat and Watch Dog cleared them out for us, and now we do not see any of that anymore. The new ones you are mentioning are not like those advertisers...and they are worse actually. If you can do this hopefurly those perpetrators will be blocked.
Have a nice day...Friday on Friday! MOL!
Hi Every fur!..Hey WeBees!~I have notified HQ~did this the same day it happend!~this is furry scary and hopefully the word will get out to all fur to pawese read and react slowly to sumfin~pawese to not respond back to peeps emails you do not know or recognize!..delete them and block them if you can!We learned this the hard way in January and we lost so much because of it~never want this to happen to anyone!
Everyfur have a nice, safe day!!~we are furry upset right now wif waht is going on in the U.S~we're in Canada and can only watch and listen to the horrific stuff going on~it is like a horror movie, not reality but sadly it is reality~the world is getting more caotic and mean and we do need to be more kind and pray for everyone!
