Answer:  TELL-“TAIL SIGN

(See!!!  I told you they were setting us up for a toughie!  I zipped through the old favorite clue words, put the answer letter layout down, read the clue/question, then I . . . just stared off into space for a while.  I went and did the Cryptoquote, and then came back to it.  I knew that the word “tail” had to be part of the answer, but wasn’t sure if it was the one in quotes, or the last word.  I guess it could have been the first word, but I wasn’t thinking that way.  It finally just kinda hit me.  

Three of the jumbles came up as new for me, with only the one for “input” definitely having been used before.  The answer letter layout was good enough to keep me guessing for a while.  The cartoon was great.  You can really see the dog eying the cat’s upright, frizzed out tail.  The poor baby better turn tail, and hightail it outta there, before that hellcat scratches its nose off!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Took me a while to get this one as well. Figured “tail” was in there somewhere so I just started making words out of the letters. When I got “sign” it came to me.

    Super Puzzler!!! Unc, I was like you…finished unjumbing the words and then it was like, What??? I was all over looking for claws, hiss, etc., etc. Then, like you and Joe, found TAIL and after more pondering, that old adage come to me! And, TA DA, solved. Certainly not easy, and not all that quickly solved!
