University of Florida student Ilana Barnes had a 1-year-old cat named Tina who mysteriously disappeared. After posting her cat’s disappearance on Facebook, she started receiving a string of threatening messages.
The sender, later identified as 22-year-old Madeleine Joan Kaye, claimed to have the cat and demanded at least $20 for Tina’s safe return. Barnes contacted police who took Kaye to jail. Meanwhile, Barnes found Tina under a house in her neighborhood, unharmed.
