Stop worshipping me!
Away! you flea!
I'll stomp you with my boots,
You know I'll accept any substitutes,
At first, I change you,
Then I begin to arrange you,
And finally I end your precious heartbeat!

Who is yelling at you?

As usual, please explain all steps in deriving an answer :)

Yet again it's

a cat.

Stop worshipping me!
Away! you flea!

The cat is telling us, the riddlers of Stackexchange, to stop writing riddles about it :-p Also, in former times, Egyptians worshipped cats. Cats get and surely hate fleas :D

I'll stomp you with my boots,

This is a reference to Puss in Boots.

You know I'll accept any substitutes,

Cats are not known for loyalty.

At first, I change you,
Then I begin to arrange you,
And finally I end your precious heartbeat!

C is the first letter in change; then the letter A begins the word arrange, and finally the letter T ends the word heartbeat - spelling out CAT.

The title is also a hint, since two riddles with similar titles have both had the same solution.
