Jezebel (Raymesha)

Jezebel, now Raymesha (aka:  Mesha, Meshe) is near 11 years old I believe and has been with me since approx. one. I think I was told she was found walking along the road out your way.   I initially was only fostering but immediately adopted her when I saw that face!  See I let the girl just picked out any for me.  It was just her and I until 8 years ago I brought home a dog off the street (Border/Pit), then we were joined about two years ago by a tuxedo I took from the alley at my job and lastly another young one, another torti off my street by my home a year ago.  Mesha was never a lap cat but lays next to me, purrs, gives kisses and uniquely chews/gums(so cute), she would throw out a big meow now and then and seem like she talks back to you tossing her head.  She and the dog seemed pretty kool for a while but since I have the others she will hiss and bat at her as to not let her come into the bedroom which is her favorite place these days.  She didn’t take well to new cats and to this day doesn’t really want to be bothered with them.  She will tolerate the tuxedo to also come on the bed but once in a while I’ll hear a growl.  She’s overall been healthy but a few years ago started needing anal glands expressed.  We changed diet.  It wasn’t going away so she had a procedure done at Noahs and for bout 9 mos. She was okay on the same diet until I noticed a hole in her back end.  It was decided to do the actual operation/removal of the anal sacs.  She’s been fine since.  She is the one in the kitchen window.
