I first saw Jezebel while looking at the Bradshaw Shelter website. Her name was just letters and numbers at that point. She had a very striking face, and was so adorable; I decided I should meet her. I found out she was in a foster home with Lapcats, and her name was Tinkerbelle. It is my understanding that she was at risk at the shelter as they believed she had ringworm. The day I met her, I ended up taking her home (which wasn’t really in the plan). I had to borrow a carrier and off we went!
When I first got Jezebel, she was battling a double ear infection as well as a skin infection. She would lick one spot as if she had OCD until it would go bare. Once visiting the vet, we were able to get her ear drops and a shot to stop the itching… all was right within a few weeks! (She also recently, 2014, had to have a half dozen teeth extracted - and managed it like a champ!)
Jezebel does suffer from some sort of vision issue, the extent of which I am not sure. I’ve noticed that it appears her depth perception is off, but it doesn’t slow her down! She loves toys that roll and rattle, and will make sure to let you know when one is stuck under the couch.
Although this little kitty has been renamed several times… she also has a nickname that is used constantly. Her nickname is “beeper.” This is because, she hardly ever meows, and if she does it comes out more like a quick beep than anything else.
Jezebel regularly helps with the Lapcats website and updates, she tries to oversee and proof read most items! Thank you so much for saving this amazing kitty, and giving us a wonderful little friend and family member!
