Janaye says: Ming is a stray that my husband and I fed and then adpoted right out of our backyard. One day I noticed her getting huge and so we brought her in. A few weeks later, at about 8pm as I watched TV, I heard squeaky sounds coming from our guest bathroom where Ming stayed when we left the house or couldn't watch her (she hadn't learned to not claw everything yet). We went in and there were two kittens. She had a total of five by 11pm and we thought she was done. But the next morning we found a sixth kitten!

Jezebel was one of the two that we found when we entered the bathroom -- one of the two firstborn. She is named so because of her "wicked ways," as we used to tease. She's a devious little furball that loves tormenting her siblings to get what she wants. She fought all of her siblings for a nipple even if there was one free, always wanting the one she couldn't have. Hehe. She has since grown to be an extremely loving girl, however she still growls anytime anyone (human or cat) gets near when she has a toy and looks like they're going to steal it. She never bites, just growls and it makes everyone laugh.

Aside from her being greedy, Jezebel is a very sweet and loving kitty who cuddles with you whenever she can. She is now a permanent member of our family, which includes two older cats named Tiger and Tabitha, and Ming, who is now a spayed indoor-outdoor cat who lives with a certain amount of freedom but is definitely part of our little family.

She is beautiful and so is Ming - I can see how hard it would have been to give either cat up! I have a cat who growls every time a person goes past our rural property! It's really funny and very teritorial!

Jezebel, you live up to your name, sweetheart! In other pictures, her alert beautiful face is totally captivating. I sigh. She is the reason we love kitties.

This must one of the few moments when Jezebel is not up to one of her tricks. She looks deceptively like an angel. Thanks for keeping her. Enjoy!

She looks like a lovable little stinker. I can see why you had to keep her. I bet she's a real comdian.

It is wonderful that you were able to keep Ming and Jezebel. They are 2 very lucky catties to have found such a nice ready made home. Did the other 4 catties get adopted too? In this photo, Jezebel, looks like she is on the prowl for a critter or bird! Beautiful baby.

They are both so gorgeous. She certainly looks cheeky. It would be very hard to say no to that little angelic face.
