Spammers! Everybody gets spam email, and bloggers get even weirder spam. And then there are spammers who email kitty bloggers — what are they thinking? Like this guy:
I can’t even imagine what he would come up with if I took him up on his offer. Sadly, probably nothing interesting enough to share and make fun of.
Anykitty else get wacky stuff like this?
We get them, and are glad to know others do, too.
Delete. Delete. Delete!

I get junk like this all the time. I always wonder what they think they might accomplish if there ever was a response.
Caren Gittleman says
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yessssssss I get those ALL the time!!!!
So often in fact that i blogged about it on a Friday (I believe last month)….people must think we are really stupid!
I get spam all the time, people wanting me to mention them or link to them in exchange for a “donation” or a mutual link. They’re never thrilled that I don’t take advertising…Dunno why…
We get spam lie that too Sparkle!
Oh Sparkle, the look on your face says it all! Uh, you could get Spitty to do the negotiations on the article…
Spitty the Kitty says
Oh, Sparkle! Do you think maybe he could write some porn about two kittehs rolling around in a tub of Gerbers??
Mark's Mews says
Well, we havent got THAT one yet, but we get a few ads disguised as comments. We usally just delete them, but sometimes we ask them weerd questions like “will you contribute the the preservation of deer ticks?”
Havent gotten anny responses to that yet.
The Island Cats says
We get stuff like that too, Sparkle. We just ignore them. We don’t want to share our blog with anybuddy else…’specially some spammer!!
Katz (And Other) Tales says
We get loads of these; some are ok and some not. Au says we get them because he’s famous 🙂 It must be your pretty eyes, Sparkle, that attack them
It’s good he recognized that you are awesome Sparkle! We get spam sort of like that too.
The Crew says
About the only thing we get are emails from sons and daughters of dead guys who want to share their green papers with me.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
Well, at least he said you are awesome!
Why are there bad ones out there trying to mess things up? They need a life. Hopefully, you can block these messages.
Thanks so much for your kind words when Opus, my sweet nephew, had to be helped to the bridge last. It meant a lot to me and my family to hear from you.
Mr Puddy says
As long as you know it’s Spam, I think all good ! Just have to trash it
The Poupounette Gang says
Well, we don’t really like people who leave pseudo-comments as a front for advertising their businesses…
Yep, and I got that exact one too…but my junk folder ate him!
Cathy Keisha says
When I first got the offer to give away the RC food, I thought I was being spammed. I didn’t believe it and even hotmail kept telling me it was suspect. My problem is if I don’t have that layer of coding, I get unwanted comments, which contain urls.
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
The publicist got that exact email and ignored it
Cheryl and her four corner cats says
I must be deprived because I’ve never received a letter such as this. In fact, I’m finally starting to receive emails from Great Uncle Nabobomofomo from Nigeria. I’m inheriting $1 million US Dollars from the estate of Auntie Nkwelli Doodoopamobotutu!
Meowy Christmas Sparkle, Boodie, and Binga!
Little One says
What a dumb guy and other spammers. Nobody messes with Sparkle.
Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz says
Gosh…fame has it’s drawbacks, doesn’t it. We had to giggle when ‘Rob’ said he MAY be able to make a one time PayPal donation, too…that means unless he’s broke, or just spent his last time on crack, or had to get his car fixed…or just decided not to!
When I hadn’t been blogging for long I got one of these and thought it was genuine, but after I asked some questions he didn’t reply again… I do like a lot of info before I sign up to anything so I probably scared him off 🙂
Max the Quilt Cat says
I got one like that one time… What a crazy thing.
Yes, I get crazy stuff like this ALL THE TIME on my blog…I love WordPress so much for capturing it for me.
Luckily, we’ve not gotten anything like this thus far, Sparkle, but I REALLY like that pic of you there on this entry: You look like a cat NOT to be messed with by STOOPID spammers!
MomKatt says she’s doesn’t understand hoomans that live just to bug others & make their lives more difficult. These people should all be rounded up & put into a dirty litterbox!
Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) says
We got one the other day stating that if I signed up with their service, they could promise more comments, since my blog did not seem to be getting much response. Umm, they do know we don’t do this just to collect comments don’t they?
We got one strange one too. What are they thinking – we’re cats for heaven’s sake.
Four Crazy Cats says
We get weird emails like that too…unless we can tell it is from a reputable company, we delete them with no response.
Father Tom says
Oh, we’ve gotten those. I love Sparkle’s expression. It’s saying, “Are you kidding? What are you trying to pull?”
Have a great day.

Hannah and Lucy says
We have got spam but Mum just deletes it without reading it. Obviously some people must answer them or surely they would give up.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Fuzzy Tales says
We get spam too, similar, but the mom doesn’t even open the emails for reviews or collaborations or whathaveyou. Maybe we’re missing out on some good stuff, but the mom doesn’t really care.
I sure have gotten spam like that. Not exactly the same but along the same lines. I used to get over 200 spam comments on my blog. Now I don’t get any spam comments but some people can’t use the captcha on my blog at the moment. So sometimes, you just can’t win. Hope all of you have a great day.
Mik Foss says
I get those too sparkle, and as I work for a web hosting company I am pretty familiar with this type of email. The person writes an article and puts in their link to generate more traffic, and link backs to their site. It increases there search rank in Google and Bing. Some people like to market their sites in this way . . .
