(And not to worry: Several days and $1,000 worth of vet services later, he's all good.)
Here's the latest on season 4, from a Vulture interview with show creator Mitch Hurwitz:

Last Friday, Wisconsin news anchor Jennifer Livingston received an email from a viewer attacking her weight.
This morning, she responded to him on the air:
To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don't know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don't see?...
Livingston went on to point out that October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and that she hopes the incident will raise awareness of bullying behavior, which is "passed down from people like the man who wrote me that email."
If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat.

My friend just went to pet cats at our local animal shelter, and found her cat that had been missing for over a year.
Behold tears of pure happiness and joy!
(Update: Kitty obviously is thrilled to be home.)
Here's a heartwarmer -- five years ago, Redditor Mantees found a tiny kitten. But it wasn't your average kitten:
While I was on holiday in the south of Italy (was living in the north) I found a tiny kitten desperately crying with the power of a thousands suns. I decided to take care of her during my holiday, so that she would be stronger and more capable to survive when I would leave back home. At the time she was obviously too young to survive alone under a 43 degrees Celsius (109 F) sun.
Her legs were clearly not okay, the mouth was also asymmetrical and impossible to close, probably because of a trauma, but the worst news still had to come. The following day I brought her to the vet who said that her eyes were closed not only because she was still too young but also because an infection ate both eyeballs. The vet also said that she was too weak, and that he thought that she could not survive.
In the following days my brother and I started to take care of her eyes infection, ears infection, intestine worms and fever, while keeping her warm, feeding her with warm powder milk every 4 hours and teaching her to follow the noise of our steps and clapping hands. After 15 days Skunky was still weak but alive, but I had to leave. So I changed my plane reservation to include a pet, and long story short, Skunky is now sleeping in my bed, with the body under my covers and her head on my pillow.
…what Skunky gives to me everyday is worth 10 times more what I might do for her.
Puddle of tears.
Normally, something akin to what Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in South Carolina would cause an uproar -- and it still has time to -- but his comments were typical Republican blame game stuff; all that people can do at this point is chuckle. What exactly did Rubio say?
For all the policy disagreements that we have with our president, it is hard to understate how much he inspired people across this country four years ago.
We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history as we have over the last three and a half years.
Far be it to point out all the Republican policy blocks over President Obama's tenure (and there are way too many to simply link). This is a notion that Brad Woodhouse of the Democratic National Committee acknowledged with the ol' side-eyed rebuttal:
No one has tried harder to reach across the aisle on everything from jobs and trade to a plan to get our fiscal house in order than has President Obama and every step of the way Republican leaders have either buckled to the far right wing of their party or decided to put politics ahead of moving our country forward.
Can the cat claws come out any further?
