I'm this black and shiny because I use Gee Your Tongue Smells Terrific.
What makes Jupiter so mean?
This is Jupiter. He may look like a sweet, fluffy, perfect specimen of felinity, but he is not. Jupiter is a mean kitty. Back in the heyday of his evil, he would jump up on the kitchen table as we were eating and lay down, flexing the claws in his right paw threateningly. In 1998, he attacked a door to door salesman, cornered a friend in the bathroom, and had a showdown with another friend on the kitchen table on a three day rampage. He was diagnosed by the veterinarian with “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” syndrome. The vet prescribed him Paxil, but it was to no avail.
Jupiter refused to take the medicine. If we hid it in a plate of tuna, he ate around the pill. If we tried to shove it down his throat, we ended up with scabs on our throats. When we did give him the medicine, he seemed calmer and sweet and stopped coming up to you purring, inviting you to pet him, then attacking when you let your guard down. But it was a thirty minute ordeal getting him his medicine every day. And I was losing a lot of blood. We took him back to the vet, who offered to put him to sleep. (Apparently during his last visit Jup had made an enemy of Dr. Stevens.) We said HELL NO — after all, we love our mean kitty.
Once after being at the vet, Jupiter would not come out of his cage. He stayed in the back and yowled like a lion, biting fiercely and kicking with his back legs against anyone or anything that came this way. Eventually my husband got him out of the cage but Jup tore through the leather gloves he was wearing, tearing a huge hole in my husband’s hands. And still, once a week or so, when the stars are misaligned, he goes on a rampage — may the other household cats and plants forgive him.

What makes Jackie so mean?
Here is a pic of my cat Jackie. As you can see he is practicing his Jackie Chan kick. He is generally a good boy but with 9 other cats in the house he has to take control and show them who’s boss…

Hey, Mama Fred, you’re one fine pillow.
What makes Jimi so mean?
Jimi is an orange, 8-year-old, 21-pound mean kitty. He is nice when he is sleeping or when things are going his way. A few weeks ago Jimi was disturbed by a stray cat who got on our porch. Jimi ended up attacking me after I tried to get him off of his mama, Fred. The little bugger sent me to the ER at 2:30 a.m. to be treated for cat bites. They are almost healed now.
Oosha boosha? Call me that one more time, and your couch is history.
Jimi is always running around and chasing Fred. Don’t let that sweet pose fool you – Jimi like to chew open the cat food bag, turn over water glasses just for fun, and thinks my couch is a $1500 scratching post bought just for his pleasure. e’s still my little oosha boosha though!

Name: Jezebel (2)
Terrorizing feline senior citizens is fun!
What makes Jezebel so mean?
Meet Jezebel. This little one is 3 1/2 years old now. Beware, those of you in the Minneapolis area…trying to pet her can be hazardous to your hand. The last time she went to the vet, I had to reschedule the appointment. The vet was afraid to examine her. When I next brought her in, the vet gave me pills to use to sedate her.
Terrorizing humans is even MORE fun!
She gets mad if she cannot be let outside on her time schedule. She gets angry if you will not play with her when she wants to. She is very demanding of her human slaves and often harasses our 18 year old cat Rascal.

Here I am, practicing my bedbug routine. You just try and keep this bedbug from biting!
What makes Jezebel so mean?
She may LOOK like a cuddly little lap kitten, but Jezebel likes to wait until you’re asleep and then bite your toes through the covers or sprawl on your face and try to smother you. She Who Must Be Fed Fancy Feast can be appeased through regular tributes, but not for long.

That’s the last time you taunt me about being smaller than a rat, boy! Prepare to meet your doom!
What makes Jet so mean?
Jet is our latest adoptee. He’s a cynical and greedy cat with a horrible temper, and a special hatred for my little brother, who incidentally is nicknamed “Rat”.

I’m the odd one because you’re too blind to see the flutterdemons infesting this house??
What makes Jess so mean?
This is Jess, our bundle of…pain? Named after Postman Pat’s black and white cat, who is a childhood figure of fun, Jess really is a strange, strange feline. She has spaz attacks where she will sit really still, pounce on some imaginary beastie, then squeeze herself behind the back of the sofa at 90 miles an hour. What a maniac.

Name: Jerry (2)
Location: Berwyn, PA
Look at the mouth breather! Come closer so I can check your blood type.
What makes Jerry so mean?
This is my mom’s precious cat Jerry. He was rescued from a barn 9 years ago where over 100 cats live. He had to fight for food and water. His mom didn’t give him enough attention and his litter mates were mean to him. He has a heart murmur which causes him to be a mouth breather. His one tear duct is clogged so it usually looks like he’s been crying.
Feel sorry for him? Well DON’T!! This cat is evil, pure evil. My mom makes up excuses for his crazy irrational behavior constantly. hen it rains, he is upset because he can’t go out without getting wet. He gets so upset that he attacks whoever’s legs/feet/hands/skirt/pants are closest, with his giant sharp claws out. He hangs on while you scream and try to get him to let go, all the while with this stupid look on his face. Then he gets coddled instead of punished. “Awww, he didn’t mean it, it’s because he had a bad childhood.” Whatever!
A meankitty until the very end…
Alas, this blue eyed all white beauty is even mean to mom. She is always appearing with band aids on her hands, arms, legs and even her face! One time he got so mad he reached up and knocked her glasses off her face and left a big scratch on the side of her head. Isn’t that cute?!?
ETA: Although Jerry did mellow with age, this only made him unpredictable, and therefore more scary to those who still hadn’t learned. Jerry passed away on 9/8/08, but just the week before he scratched a toddler and made him cry.

Don’t touch me! No, seriously.
What makes Jerry so mean?
Jerry, who is no longer with us, was the Food Guy’s cat before we combined forces (and cats). A housemate of the original Meankitty, Jerry was a big fatty who sometimes took violent offense to being brushed, as you can see here. He sometimes took violent offense to being breathed on and looked at, so you just never knew with ole Jer Bear. He also thought he deserved a large portion of anything you were eating and checked everything he didn’t recognize to see if it might be edible.
Is that food? It could be food. What’s a camera? I’m more interested in food.
Jerry’s powers of shedding and barfing up hairballs were legendary. And so he lives on in Meankitty’s gallery.

This is my whiny face. It’s also my angry face, my sad face and my happy face.
What makes Jenna so mean?
Jenna whines ceaselessly. This is her favorite hobby. She also enjoys cleaning herself, napping, and cowering melodramatically whenever someone comes near her. (No, she was never abused. We’ve decided this is just what Jenna does to let us know that she will never assimilate into our family, or enjoy our company.)
When Jenna is not whining, she is eating. Jenna enjoys Chef’s Blend cat food. You’d think after 12 years we’d know that, but occasionally we try to sneak something different in there. Not happening. Jenna will sit by her untouched bowl and give us the death glare until we return to the store to purchase the correct brand. She doesn’t care how long it takes. She will then sulk and refuse to eat the Chef’s Blend for a few hours, just for dramatic effect.
In the evening, Jenna will sometimes grace us with her presence in our bed. She likes to let us know that she is not happy about the situation by engaging in a bit more whining, and eventually falling asleep stretched out to her maximum length in a position that will ensure that my husband and I are made uncomfortable for the entire night. I often wake to find Jenna curled around my neck, or directly atop my face, in what I can only imagine is an attempt to suffocate me in my sleep.
Jenna shows no interest in us at all, except for rare occasions when she decides she’d like to us to pet her. We’ve discovered that we really need to give Jenna our full attention when this happens. If we try to stop petting Jenna before she decides she’s had enough, she will bite and scratch the hell out of us. Quite honestly, this cat will go from purring contentment to raving beast in under a second flat if our hands stop moving. We MUST continue until she decides to walk away. I love her, but she is truly the craziest cat I have ever owned.
